For most designers/developers, Lorem Ipsum is a familiar term.

Lorem Ipsum is the ‘go to’ website for generating placeholder text for brochures, websites etc, before the real life copy has even been written or arrived. I’ve generated hundreds of paragraphs of the stuff, and likely so have you. But it’s always so serious. And predictable. And when was the last time is actually made you laugh?

Introducing some fun alternatives:
