Remember that Gov. Rick Scott -- a man who doesn't even read newspapers -- wanted people to mass-mail prewritten letters of his endorsement to local newspapers?

The "Dear Editor, When Rick Scott ran for Governor he promised..." blah blah blah one?

Well, Florida Watch Action has a different idea -- send a Rick Scott-style Mad Libs you can make yourself.

Titled the "Pink Slip Mad Lib Challenge," it encourages you to "take his astroturf letter and fill in the blanks to expose the truth."

We tried it out, with some pretty rad results:

Some of the Tea Partiers are punching the Governor for making tough bong hits...

And that's barely a fraction of all the fun-filled Mad Lib activity you can have at the governor's expense.

The best part is, they'll judge the entries you submit to the site and give the winner a "Pink Slip Rick" T-shirt, affectionately named after the 331,247 job losses Florida Watch Action says have been proposed by the governor.

Feel free to mail your Rick Scott Mad Libs to New Times if you still want to send a Rick Scott letter to a local newspaper, or leave it in the comments below.
