He got up, just like every morning, and shut off the alarm clock. He brushed his teeth and got dressed. He didn’t notice anything odd until he got to the kitchen and tried to verb the eggs.

He blinked and looked down at the saucepan, where the nouns still sat, verbing.

“What?” he verbed.

He tried to verb the nouns again, but pronoun wouldn’t verb.

Frantically, he clung to specificity, but pronoun verbed adverb.

Noun verbed preposition article noun, but when he opened it, he saw the noun fading into adjective noun. Noun verbed. Noun verbed adverb.

“Expletive,” Noun verbed.

Hasn't anyone ever warned you not to leave your drink unattended at a party?

Scattercat has been off catting around. The best way to get a cat's attention is to dangle the thread.
It's nice to have our puss back.

Loved it. It reminds me of one of those madlibs. I am not sure I am spelling this right or have the correct word, but those booklets as a kid where you were supposed to fill in the blank with a funny noun or verb and then read the story.

This one would translate well for the audio podcast.

Nice to see you guys, too.

Bonus points if you can correctly guess what the words were before I replaced them...

Challenge accepted! Except I decided to go mad-libs style. I sprung this on an unsuspecting friend and made him furnish all the words unawares. Here's the finished 'DrabbLibs":
Spoiler:
He got up, just like every morning, and shut off the alarm clock. He brushed his teeth and got dressed. He didn’t notice anything odd until he got to the kitchen and tried to (quack) the eggs.

He blinked and looked down at the saucepan, where the (offices) still sat, (leaping).

“What?” he (turned).

He tried to (rewind) the (offices) again, but (he) wouldn’t (rewind).

Frantically, he clung to specificity, but (they) (landed) (mightily).

(Spatula) (climbed) (above) (the) (mailbox), but when he opened it, he saw the (spatula) fading into (strangled) (cereal). (Hammer) (excelled). (Hammer) (excelled) (hoarsely).

“(Zounds),” (pillow) (frightened).
Actually, this gives me an idea! I think this would make a pretty fun game for the DC Facebook group. Disembowel a drabble, ask everyone to furnish the words, then post the finished crowdsourced drabble for all to enjoy. I'll have to work something up and try it... :twisted:
