Lorem Ipsum?

When designers are working on something that contains writing but don't yet have the final text, they use lorem ipsum (a kind of nonsensical latin) as a placeholder.

While writing some code to give a rough estimate of reading time for articles on this site I was thrilled then to discover A Happy Lorem Ipsum - Bob Ross Quotes Generator. The output was such a sweet stream of consciousness that I was compelled to hang onto it, so have done so below. It even has little typos which for me only make it more human :)
