Before we had iPhones and iPod Touches and apps like Words with Friends, the #1 choice for on-the-go word-gaming was undoubtedly Mad Libs!
We're sad to say that the very talented man who created Mad Libs, Leonard B. Stern, passed away on Tuesday at 88 years old.
Aside from Mad Libs, he was also an Emmy award winning writer, who was recognized for his work on The Phil Silvers Show and Get Smart. He was ALSO a successful TV producer.
The endlessly addictive word game series has sold over 150 million copies, and more than two million Mad Libs apps have been downloaded to iPhones and iPads!
Thanks for so many years of entertainment AND thanks for teaching us the parts of speech, Leonard! Sure, our teachers helped a little bit, but we def couldn't have mastered those without you!
