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.

The Sewer

Matthew Steeples reports on a confrontation at the Saatchi Gallery

 

Last night, at a party at the Saatchi Gallery, I was accosted by a dishevelled and somewhat nutty woman named Melanie Rochester.

 

In the presence of my good friend Oliver Newton, this “very strange and quite unstable” harridan ranted: “You know who I am. I’m going to sue you”. I asked her why and she screamed the same statement again: “You know. I’m going to sue you”. I smiled, laughed and replied: “Go ahead. Please do” and walked off.

 

Ms Rochester, it seems, thinks I am behind the website that exposes gatecrashers named MAX. I am not and if she wishes to pursue any action that claims to the contrary, she’ll only make an even bigger fool of her scruffy, sorry self. Next!

  1. We’ve had dealings with this woman before and she’s an absolute nightmare! We’re so glad that word is finally getting out about her. She just randomly shows up to things, uninvited, and then causes such a scene when she’s either not on the list, or not given champagne, or whatever else she’ll complain about. Most people just let her and her cronies in, but we stopped doing that and she flipped out. Accused us of discrimination and tarnishing her name. Not sure it could actually get any worse. Horrible woman. Glad to see the back of her.
