Halfway to Reno, the Johnson family pulled casually into a crowded service station. While eight-year-old Bobby headed for the bathroom, his mother remained in the car. She picked up a copy of "Mad Libs" from the backseat, where Bobby had been studiously working just minutes before.
She began to read:
"The red-headed doosh jumped into the doosh and began to doosh. On the way to the doosh, several people dooshed, just dooshy enough to make certain it was dooshed dooshly. "Hurry up!" called little doosh. We're going to be doosh! So the day ended with nothing doosh at the double-doosh."
She looked up to find Bobby staring right at her, lovingly.

02/2/2004 senator (5): That is very dooshing funny. I am amazed at how long it took me to get this one. I reread the "Mad Lib" story filling it in with other words to see if I could figure it out. Then doosh it hit me, just like a dooshy doosh, dooshed me in the head.
02/2/2004 Will Disney: i guess i don't understand it, completely. bobby was dooshing in the bathroom, right?
02/2/2004 qualcomm (3): the concept is good. but it "felt" flat to me for some reason. does it add luster to the acmeshorts brand, i wonder? disney, i think little bobby saw his mom douching, or maybe found one of her douches and knew what it was for. either way, it has something to do with his mom's cunt and bobby's love for it.
by the way, how do you "pull casually" into a service station? is it normally a formal process?
02/2/2004 scoop (3): well, feldspar you could go screeching in to the gas station with a stuntman's bravdo, as opposed to rolling to an uneventful stop, but i get your point. like the "nothing doosh at the double doosh" line. i think its funny that lil' bobby mispelled douche. but i think its missing something...maybe springtime freshness.
02/2/2004 qualcomm: yeah, i kind of hate to give this one three stars, because it's better than a lot of other shorts i've given three to. but it's just not a four to me, and this isn't about what's come before. it's about adding lustre to the acmeshorts brand.
02/2/2004 anonymous: From author: Bobby wasn't doing any douching. He's just repeating a word to which he's become attached.
02/2/2004 Will Disney: btw: i'll add a feature, sometime, that will mark anonymous comments from the author themselves during the anonymous period. so instead of anonymous it'll say from the author...
02/2/2004 Will Disney: plus anyway i'm pretty sure he was dooshing.
02/2/2004 Dylan Danko (4): Well I found it funny.
02/2/2004 qualcomm: wait, don't you find M*A*S*H the movie funny too?
02/2/2004 Jimson S. Sorghum: Lustre....you're the doosh.
02/2/2004 Mr. Pony (5): You guys are lame-o's. This is really really funny.
02/2/2004 Mr. Pony: Ha! I'm still laughing.
02/2/2004 senator: I agree with Pony boy. This is extremely humorous. It conjures up a multitude of possibilities. Like how Bobby found out what a doosh is? How long has he been obsessed with the doosh? How many times has he seen his mom doosh? The delayed timing of the joke is priceless.
02/2/2004 qualcomm: to paraphrase mr. pony, while this short is shaped like something funny, somehow, it just doesn't make persons of substance laugh.
02/3/2004 Mr. Pony: Hey!
