Tired of having to think up your own half-assed arguments?

Oh noes! Someone got their paws on the anti-literary Mad Libs!

“Today’s ______ [name of your imaginary, super-scary enemy in quote marks] crowd, ________, _______, _________ [three derogatory adjectives] (______________) [half-hearted aside at equanimity regarding a form of literature you know nothing about], never has to fight such battles because they never simply dare to do what ________ [name of science fiction author] does.”

Let’s see how the author’s Mad Lib was filled out!

“Today’s “Litfic” crowd, timid, tepid, navel-gazing (and I hope some reader outraged by my words here will prove me wrong) never has to fight such battles because they simply never dare to do what Moorcock does.”

Super easy AND fun for the whole family!
