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.

Stoving Brainboxes

Grabbing granny Eva Harold takes a tumble and rants about being suspended from social media at a party whilst elsewhere in Chelsea the ‘Brexit Brainbox’ got barred


On Thursday evening, at a party in London’s Kings Road, a rather over-refreshed Eva Harold – a woman who shares her name with a stove glass product – was heard moaning to fellow guests about Facebook supposedly having suspended her account.


Though the grabbing granny’s account seems to now be working again, we’re not surprised that a woman so anti cyclists, black people and Muslims should have offended anyone. Next, Miss Harold, after harassing a foreign royal and “rocking in Subbuteo figure-like fashion after one shandy too many” (according to one observer), then took a stumble and headed off into the night.


Elsewhere in Chelsea, on Friday evening, an equally charmless friend of Miss Harold was told that she would not be served in a bar. The ‘Brexit Brainbox’, as we christened her, had made numerous derogatory remarks about immigrants on her last visit despite being of foreign stock her very self. After a somewhat perplexing rant at the venue’s manager, the ‘Brainbox’ stormed off in search of locating champagne elsewhere. A girl, after all, has to drink (even if it’s champagne made by foreigners).
