Mahem on Madlibs

In continuing my theme of offerings for children on government websites, I have to point out that one of my most singular discoveries in years of web crawling has to be this fun-filled activity for children on the site for public service announcements from the Office of Homeland Security, which consists of a madlib to be filled out by children in preparation for a terrorist attack. As a form of Public Diplomacy, this seems particularly inappropriate, given the domestic audience addressed. (Click on image to enlarge.)

Considering that the most popular verb that children in my household use in madlibs is "fart," I fear to think how a real child would fill this out sight unseen.
