A Mad Libs Eulogy to Leonard B. Stern

Leonard B. Stern, the creator of Mad Libs, died on Tuesday.  Though I wouldn't call them "award-winning" works of art or forerunners for any literary awards, who can forget these beloved children's past time creations?  And so, in honor of the silly, weird, bizarre, or just plain confusing stories children (and adults) can and have created, here's my eulogy to Mr. Stern.

Here lies    (noun)   .  He    (verb - past tense)    Mad Libs for    (noun - plural)    to enjoy.  But all the credit can't be given to him; his    (noun)   , Roger Price, helped him create such a/an    (adjective)    game for children and adults alike.  Next time you find yourself    (adjective)   , grab a    (noun)   , some paper, and a friend.  See what you can come up with!
