    It's when an actor "Ad libs" (says something that is not in the script). What the person did above me is a MAD lib. Fun game, wrong defintion.

    Sorry bout that.

    You are right, I should've known since me and all my buddies are either actors in my school's drama club, or stage crew.

    Im stage crew, and only do music acts, so I guess I shouldnt be too hard on myself.

    Oh well. Thanks for the correction.

    Peace

    Ad Lib, in music, means to improvise.
