JavaScript JavaScript Basics (Retired) Working With Numbers The Mad Libs Challenge Revisited

Code not always working.

After doing the code in this tutorial I noticed it won't always work when filling in the prompt questions, it may ask 2 questions and then stop working, but a third time it works. Is javascript buggy like this?

var questions = 3;
var questionsLeft = ' [' + questions + ' questions left]';
var adjective = prompt('Please type an adjective' + questionsLeft);
questions -= 1;
questionsLeft = ' [' + questions + ' questions left]';
var verb = prompt('Please type a verb' + questionsLeft);
questions -= 1;
questionsLeft = ' [' + questions + ' questions left]';
var noun = prompt('Please type a noun');
alert('All done. Ready for the message?');
var sentence = "<h2>There once was a " + adjective;
sentence += ' programmer who wanted to use Javascript to ' + verb;
sentence += ' the ' + noun + '.<h2>';

Tweaked your post to add syntax highlighting. And no, it's not just you, the challenge engine has been a little buggy for me recently too. :)
