What is Lorem Ipsum?
Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry's standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software like Aldus PageMaker including versions of Lorem Ipsum.

Why do we use it?
It is a long established fact that a reader will be distracted by the readable content of a page when looking at its layout. The point of using Lorem Ipsum is that it has a more-or-less normal distribution of letters, as opposed to using 'Content here, content here', making it look like readable English. Many desktop publishing packages and web page editors now use Lorem Ipsum as their default model text, and a search for 'lorem ipsum' will uncover many web sites still in their infancy. Various versions have evolved over the years, sometimes by accident, sometimes on purpose (injected humour and the like).

Where can I get some?
There are many variations of passages of Lorem Ipsum available, but the majority have suffered alteration in some form, by injected humour, or randomised words which don't look even slightly believable. If you are going to use a passage of Lorem Ipsum, you need to be sure there isn't anything embarrassing hidden in the middle of text. All the Lorem Ipsum generators on the Internet tend to repeat predefined chunks as necessary, making this the first true generator on the Internet. It uses a dictionary of over 200 Latin words, combined with a handful of model sentence structures, to generate Lorem Ipsum which looks reasonable. The generated Lorem Ipsum is therefore always free from repetition, injected humour, or non-characteristic words etc.

Ridiculing Riemenschneider

Lothario chef Michael Riemenschneider mocked on Twitter in addition to being taken to court by his investor and ex-lover

 

The Steeple Times reviewed a restaurant named ‘Canvas by Michael Riemenschneider’ in February 2014. We noted that the emphasis was truly on the chef’s name and boy was it everywhere. It was on the walls, on the windows and on the waiter’s aprons and nowhere was the word ‘Riemenschneider’ not to be seen. That name is now mud given this German (or Swiss depending on the day of the week) man has been sucked into a bitter court battle with his ex-lover and financial backer whilst elsewhere, on Twitter, an account has been created that labels him a “conman who [sic] steal investors money”.

Aside from being made the main news item on the Mail Online on Sunday, Mr Riemenschneider has been subjected to numerous allegations on the @Michaelriemen Twitter feed. We cannot confirm whether any of them are true or false but amongst them are:

 

“Did you know that Michael Riemenschneider set fire to the Barcaldine House Hotel so he could have an excuse to run again? #conman #noshame”

 

“Riemenschneider is the idiot. He’s stolen over 2 million pounds of investors money. He will be in prison very soon”.

 

“I’m busy betting away investors money! I love being a #conman”.

 

“Spending all of my investors money on poker! #conman #catchmeifyoucan”.

 

“This man is wanted for crimes against food #riemenschneider #frankfurt #atelierwilma”.

 

“Michael Riemenschneider is BACK stealing investors money. Why does no one do anything? He’s a DISGRACE to industry”.

 

“Guten tag… I’ve got a new restaurant opening. Rent is £250k and my break even is £5.50 a week. Fancy it?”

 

“Riemenschneider #conman pretending to know what he’s talking about in Germany. What happened to being Swiss? #liar”.

  1. The story that keeps on giving. I’ve looked at the bogus Twitter accounts, they are funny. Nowhere to hide for this chap now, bet he wishes he had an eraser pen to erase his name! Given you went to the original Canvas, hope you didn’t pay £200 for his pretentiousness!
