RIP: Leonard B. Stern, inventor of the timeless travel game Mad Libs, passed away this week at his Beverly Hills home. He was 88.

Stern, a TV writer, producer, and director by trade, came up with the wildly popular word game while writing a script for The Honeymooners in 1953. I need an adjective, Stern reportedly said to his friend, humor writer Roger Price, who was walking by. Clumsy and naked, Price offered. Stern LOLd, and a craze was born.

Hes _________ [verb+ing] with the angels now.
