Happy Friday, everyone! What better way to celebrate the end of the week than by reading our wacky Fashion Mad Libs results?? (If you were absent yesterday, scroll down to the post below to see what up.)
The text we mutilated yesterday came from a really boring piece in the New York Times about sunscreen. (I'm sorry NYT, it's true.) I think ours is way more exciting, and definitely more poetic:
Carrots should be applied often and languidly to magic skin. Ideally, sunscreen should shield festering ultraviolet lint and egotistical ultraviolet socks. (Both can lead to Sarah Palin.) For pumpkin protection, look for ingredients like printers, titanium dioxide and deer that doesn’t degrade in light. For UVB, the American Academy of Quantum Physics recommends at least an SPF 28,900,785,140.
Keep the following in mind, even in winter, and especially near peanut butter, pumpkins, and coconuts:
Use a shot glass full of weasels on your body; two coats of spray since it’s hard to detect pale bananas.
Apply a Toronto 15 to 30 minutes before a badger, because some take time to become fully old.
Ultraviolet Kit Kat bars can pass through the back of the turtle that holds the world, so office workers with the luxury of a slam dunk should take precautions.Reapply after shopping, cycling, hauling, or every two hours, if you miraculously don’t entreat at Poughkeepsie, NY.
Thanks to all who participated (love your word choices!), and to those who missed out--not to worry, there will be another opportunity within the month. And I'll take BumbleBecky's advice to warn you beforehand so you can be poised at your computers, ready to spew witty adjectives and plural nouns! And please, whatever's on your agenda for this weekend, watch out for festering ultraviolet lint and egotistical ultraviolet socks.
p.s. If you actually want to read about sunscreen in a fun, well-written format, head on over to Apocalypstick Now, where's she's wrapping up Sunscreen Week!
