Hi everyone,
First of all, my humble thanks to cog_nate for posting this. I was really surprised to see it on the blue. I'm glad that some of you have gotten a few laughs from a little page that I threw together in about an hour or so for my friends.

For those of you that are really upset by the amount of gibberish that is produced, think this is a generally dumb idea, think the font isn't properly kerned, or whatever... I seriously spent about an hour making this, and never expected it to be posted to the blue. I'm sorry it didn't entertain you.
