Ah, but the original poster required the questions to be asked in the form of all nouns, then all verbs, then all adjectives. Another twist...

    I know. But that makes you explicitly spell out which terms you want to use in your mad lib, which isn't very efficient. My snippet rewrite is written in the spirit of plaid's code (here), which scans through the text and prompts the user for terms.
      No, you don't have to spell it out in advance, you just have to have gather them all in, then sort them by type. See my version for one way to do it.
