Not your average Lorem Ipsum

If you’ve ever done a page layout, for web or print, you’ve likely needed some dummy text to design or proof around. Lorem Ipsum is the most well known bogus copy in the industry and I’ve used it plenty of times. There’s a lovely online generator for the placeholder copy, and those with desktop publishing experience will remember the colourful prose Jabberwocky generated in Quark Xpress in Klingon. 🙂

But now there’s a new kid generator on the scene. The ever-helpful Neil Dixon pointed me to a really cute alternative this morning. The site is called malevole – Text Generator. Give it a whirl the next time you need filler copy. I laughed out loud when I read through the text it produced for my copy/paste pleasure…
Here it is:

There’s a voice that keeps on calling me. Down the road, that’s where I’ll always be. Every stop I make, I make a new friend. Can’t stay for long, just turn around and I’m gone again. Maybe tomorrow, I’ll want to settle down, Until tomorrow, I’ll just keep moving on.

Knight Rider, a shadowy fight into the dangerous world of a man who does not exist. Michael Knight, a young loner on a crusade to champion the cause of the innocent, the helpless in a world of criminals who operate above the law.

80 days around the world, we’ll find a pot of gold just sitting where the rainbow’s ending. Time – we’ll fight against the time, and we’ll fly on the white wings of the wind. 80 days around the world, no we won’t say a word before the ship is really back. Round, round, all around the world. Round, all around the world. Round, all around the world. Round, all around the world.

LOL! It quoted Knight Rider! How cool is that!
Well, perhaps you can find a use for this fun tool… Enjoy!


One thought on “Not your average Lorem Ipsum”

  1. I used to use a small OS9 application called (something like) “Kantt Generator – or may have been Kantt Pro. It created legible pseudo-intelligible text which always attracted the interest of someone around the table at a design presentation. I would see them pouring over the text desperately trying to decipher its complex philosophical gibberish.
    I’ve tried to locate that old application, but alas it seems to be no more.
