Cookin' the Console

Looking for something new and different to liven up your prose? At a complete loss for words? Interested in exploring "surrealist poet" as a career option? All this and more is at your fingertips with the Random Phrase Generator. Examples:

  • practically risen close octane
  • mythical integer exploring attaboy
  • unscientific contraband flaking amidst
  • belated omnipotent dilating yap

Nice, but it gets even better. For all you scribes out there wrestling with advanced writer's block, random sentences and paragraphs can also be generated. (No random 100,000-word books, though. Damn!)

Let's try a paragraph, punching in "love" as the primary subject and "scooter" as the secondary:

Love grinds scooter without the thousand exercise. Love pipelines scooter across the head. The absolute jerks scooter beside the sky. Scooter corners love against the noisy syndicate. An annoyed garage bests scooter without a syndicate. Why can't scooter bore before his moan? An optimal keyword cooks the console. The overload hesitates across love. When can love sabotage scooter?

Hmm. You know, I'd eliminate a few articles to make it more readable, but it's not bad at all. We have some brilliant, unusual verbs, not to mention a few crazy-ass adjective/noun combos. The sentence lengths are a bit samey, but that can easily be fixed. Anyway, amuse yourself for hours ... or as the god of random verbiage might say, "an optimal keyword cooks the console." Couldn't have said it better myself (literally).
