#Exercise 6.3

#Pseudocode:
#Design a main program that is kind of like a madlib.
#Use a subroutine to return the user's word.

#Main body:
#Tell the user s/he is playing silly madlibs.
#Ask the user to input a word.
#Construct a short story and insert each of the returned value somewhere

##Subroutine
#Ask the user for a random word.
#Collect the answer.
#Return the answer.

#******PROGRAM BEGINS HERE*****

#Define variables

my $word = 0;
my $message = "Please enter a noun: ";

#Introduce the program

print "Hello! Play a madlibs game with me! \n";

$word = userprompt($message);

print "I think you look like a $word! HAHA!\n";

print "Would you like to play again?\n";


exit;

#Can make more interesting by using If statement to ask to play again.

    print "@_";

    my $word = <STDIN>;
