Google N-Gram Mad Libs Redux

Last year about this time I published a story written by Google N-Gram, a program that tells you what words most frequently follow a given word or phrase. For more details of how it works and the rules I followed, see my post last year. It’s time to do it again.

A terrible thing to say about the nature of the work and its author is not a national institution. I was excited when I got the call from the hospital. It was shocking to see the world as a whole. But no one could have foreseen that the time would come when the people of the United States and the Soviet Union would be able to see the whole picture. The alien spaceship might look like this one day when I was in the middle of a sentence. How could anyone think that the only way to get to know the people who are in the same position as a person who is not a party to the action? President Nixon’s visit to China in 1972 was the first year of the war the British government had been in power.
