Making MadLib Stories, Easier

You might recall this example from earlier in this section of the book.

What if we want to change this story? We can change the values for firstName, lastName, gender, address, and verb. But, if we change each of these we are changing 5 lines. Is there another way to do this? What if we want to specify the values like this inputs="Pat,Smith,boy,65 Elm Street,eat"? Can we do that?

Sure, we can – if we can take that string apart. The computer knows how to break larger pieces of data into smaller ones.
