Democracy Mad Libs

Who doesn’t love to play MAD LIBS, the game that tests your ability to distinguish verb from noun, adverb from preposition. And who doesn’t love democracy, a system of government by which a country’s citizens directly retain and exercise political sovereignty. Therefore, who wouldn’t love to play the game of democracy mad libs with the Wolfsonian Museum’s “Thoughts on Democracy” Ad Lib Pads created by Crispin Porter + Bogusky for the museum’s celebration of democracy in this presidential election year.

True to our democratic traditions, you, the people, can customize your own “Star Spangled Banner,” which we all know is one of the hardest national anthems to sing. So as it says in the Constitution: enjoy life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness, and have “fun with democracy.”
