add a word, write a story

I'm not sure where this started, but I sometimes play a game with people in a car where you write/tell a story by every person taking turns and adding a word (Was that from you, Mom?). I'm on a road trip visiting B's family and we wrote this story yesterday.

Once
there
lived
a
really
hungry
hippo
who
promised
to
never
eat
a
monkey
again.
Then,
without
delay,
he
started
running
to
the
neighbor's
house
which
smelled
horrible.
Just
then,
a
spider
tripped
on
enormous
piles
of
monkey
manure
and
sticks.
"Help!"
he exclaimed,
"would
someone
with
kleenex
help
remove
this
splinter?"
However,
noone
would
listen
or help
with
his
splinter
predicament.

Meanwhile,
back
at
the
hippo
hospital,
ten
doctors
administered
a broken
treatment
because
they
believed
that
if they
could
treat
monkeys
and
heal
rats,
then
spiders
could
run
through
monkey
manure
without
getting
splinters.

The End.

thanks, friends. It's fun. You should try it! Especially with words that could go a variety of directions.
And thanks, J, for the award!
