Slip and Fall Complaint Mad Libs

Though this post at the The Namby Pamby blog (via Overlawyered) is clearly tongue-in-cheek, those of us who've been around the block a few times have certainly seen our share of complaints that appear to have been drafted using this form. My favorite step:

Step Six: It’s time to talk about a breach of dooty. The more dooty breached, the better.

11. On or about January 15, 2010, the Defendant breached its dooties and was negligent in one or more of the following ways:
a. Carelessly and negligently allowed the Plaintiff to do a triple axle, double loop in aisle nine;
b. Carelessly and negligently allowed its insurance company to hire a hack claims adjustor;
c. Carelessly, negligently and inexplicably allowed the Plaintiff to have her ambulance chased by counsel;
d. Failed to buy enough roombas to clean its floors and walkways;
e. Failed to hire the Janitor from Scrubs; and
f. Defendant was otherwise careless, negligent and/or f*!#d some s^!t up.

Have some gems from pleadings you've had to deal with (or that you've filed) recently? Feel free to share in the comments.
