Editor’s Note: Monday Madlibs will now be running once every other week.
The premiere of Blonde Charity Mafia, the Georgetown-centric reality show about the Late Night Shots crew, may have been pushed back to the fall, but that didn’t stop the Georgetowner from writing a cover story about it! The result is something of a trainwreck, complete with clunky plugs for the show and littered with Georgetown name-dropping. See if you can improve it a bit, madlibs style!

Earlier this week, Georgetown named Mehran Kamrava interim dean of the School of Foreign Service in Qatar. Not knowing much about SFS-Q or Dr. Kamrava, it seems like a pretty good fit given Kamrava’s impressive publishing record and stint as the director of the Center of International and Regional Studies. But, haven’t you always wished you could pick the interim dean for once? And, while you’re at it, maybe create a new satellite SFS campus? Here’s your chance!

Recently, the must-read blog in D.C. has been Spotted: DC Summer Interns. With its catty tales of intern foibles, the blog is a fun place to read bitter Hill staffers bashing the teenagers half a step below them. It’s pretty entertaining as is, but how could we make it even better? Madlib it!

What’s sweeter than returning to your alma mater to get drunk with your college friends just like the good old days? Probably only one thing: writing a Madlib about it!

Last weekend, at Trinity Washington University (a small, Catholic school in Northesast D.C. with an all-women’s undergraduate program), University President Patricia McGuire used her commencement speech to upbraid the anti-abortion zealots who were protesting President Obama’s appearance at Notre Dame. Here’s your chance to add a little extra oomph to her very powerful speech.

Dust off your inspirational speech-making skills, it’s time for the Commencement address edition of Monday Madlibs! In his speech, Chuck Hagel listed five lessons for SFS kids. They were pretty good, but we’re sure you can make them even better. So go on, give those wily SFSers some advice:

The Swine Flu scare has settled down a bit now that we know it’s basically as harmful as your run-of-the-mill influenza, but let’s take some time relive those heady days (last Tuesday through Friday) when we thought we were dealing with some end-of-days-style pandemic. Here’s your chance to send out your very own infectious disease alert!

It’s that time of year again: flowers are blooming, the sun’s shining and you’re stressed out about add/drop. Tomorrow and Wednesday, everyone who got shafted on Pre-Registration will partake in the bi-annual “Pre-registration Completion” ritual, obsessively refreshing the class seating page for that one course they need, hopelessly watching as the waitlist skyrockets as they count down the seconds until their Add/Drop slot. This year, though, Vox is giving you a chance to reclaim the process. Here it is, your own chance to usurp John Q. Pierce’s authority and create your own add/drop directions:
