Ye Madde Libbe of ye Fifth day of June, Anno Domini 2003:
He's mad that trusts in the tameness of a wolf, a horse's health, a _________, or a _________.
(yes, there are two blanks. I think you're up to it.)

O Sir, we quarrel in print, by the book, as you have books for good manners. I will name you the degrees. The first, the Retort Courteous; the second, the Quip Modest; the third, the Reply Churlish; the fourth, the Reproof Valiant; the fifth, the Countercheck Quarrelsome; the sixth, the Lie with Circumstance; the seventh, the Lie Direct.
--As You Like It, V:4
  • He's mad that trusts in the tameness of a wolf, a horse's health, a spam email's usefulness, or a lawyer's conscience.
  • ... a person's willingness to use lj-cut, or a small font in a post.
    • The Retort Courteous:

      Who would be nuts enough to trust in a small font in a post?
      • Re: The Retort Courteous:

        Not me. I already have to wear glasses.

        I suppose the correct answer is "a man who is mad, duh"
        • the Quip Modest

          Hmmmn. Okay, I won't trust in you, then.
          • Re: the Quip Modest

            Always a good plan, and one whose usefulness has nothing to do with this madlibs.. :)
  • political figure, privacy policy.
  • a husband's memory, or a cat's cuddlesome mood.
  • hard drive's immortality // clearing New England sky
  • a machine's perfection, or a monster's perfidy.

    (So that's where the title for the fourth Bruno collection came from...)
  • a(n) infomercial // promise made by an insurance agent
