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.

Picture of the Week – Tailgating Par Excellence

An image of quite possibly the best tailgate bar ever (and two images of the consequential behaviour)

 

On Monday, Guest of a Guest featured what could quite possibly be the finest tailgate drinking setup ever.

 

In a series of slides about the 96th Far Hills Running Race Meeting in New Jersey on Saturday, the paper included one of a Range Rover complete with what can only be described as the best mobile bar we’ve seen in ages. It features a bar stocked with gin, whisky, wine, vodka and all manner of bar accoutrements and paraphernalia and is nothing but spectacular.

 

If they’d been there, Edina Monsoon and Patsy Stone of Absolutely Fabulous and dear old Withnail and I’s Withnail and Marwood would never have got near the horses as this was a bar that just had to be emptied.

 

The following two pictures show the result of what the real guests subsequently got upto:
