Burgers are out. Generators are in.

The Generator Blog describes and links to about 190 Generator sites, where you can make all sorts of different things online: Dymo-style labels, Wisconsin city names, walking insects, Bart Simpson chalkboards, Guitar Chords, Sound effects (onomatopoeia) and more. Disclaimer: I found out about this in my HTTP logs, so while nothing here is a self-link, one of those 190 generator links is. Tiptoe carefully around it.
