=rand(2,5)

Reading the most recent copy of PC Magazine, I stumbled across an article called Generating Dummy Text in Word. I gave it a shot this morning, and sure enough, it worked:

The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog. The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog. The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog. The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog. The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog.

The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog. The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog. The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog. The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog. The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog.

Although it’s nifty to have such a tool on your desktop, I much prefer the web-based Lorem Ipsum Generator, which uses a time-tested formula for page-filling text. Anyone who has ever worked for Adobe knows that “Lorem Ipsum” has been a favorite of typographic professionals for the past 500 years.

While we’re on the loosely-related subject of pangrams:

  • How razorback-jumping frogs can level six piqued gymnasts?
  • Cozy lummox gives smart squid who asks for job pen.

Got any other favorites?
