NAD-LIBS work just like Mad-Libs, only they focus on the adventures of everyone’s favourite Conservative MP, Nadine Dorries. (It’s hard to think of a more fitting tribute, given her tendency to imagine or invent stuff that happens to her, often at random, if not according to her specific publicity needs at the time.)


Here are the story-sheets that are available so far. Simply click on the version you would like to play, print it onto an A4 sheet of dead tree, grab a pencil, and then find someone to play with*:

NAD-LIBS: Sheet# 1 – Nadine Dorries wins the day [DOWNLOAD]

NAD-LIBS: Sheet# 2 – Nadine Dorries claims sexual harassment [DOWNLOAD]

The BIG HINTS for playing this game successfully include:
a) never try to play online, because it rarely works as well as it does ‘live’
c) choose an audience that’s at least dimly aware of our dimmest MP
d) alternatively, just find some children (or some people who think like children)
e) do not show or share any of the story to your audience until it is finished
f) specifically point out that you are publishing the output of a NAD-LIBS game when repeating any of the results online, or hot-shot lawyer Donal Blaney may serve you with a ‘writ’ or some other form of quasi-legal document written in official blue crayon.

(*Ooooh, Matron!)
