Column writing in half the time

I just read a baseball column disguised as a Mad Lib.

Here's a sample. I'm not making this up:
I'm (adjective) of Barry Bonds.

After a year of (verb ending in -?ing) about how rough his life is, the biggest (noun) in baseball is back in the batter's box. Apparently, he didn't jump off a bridge like he said the media forced him to.
The headline? I (verb) Bonds will disappear

At least it fits the story. And it did catch my eye; I would have never read that story without it.
