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.

Wally of the Week – Rachel Veazey

Woman whose boycott of TJ Maxx in support of the Trump family lasted all of thirty seconds is truly a pointless fool

 

Rachel Veazey, a woman whose Facebook page is filled with biblical quotes, was interviewed by The Washington Post last week.

 

In a feature titled A Trump voter’s message to retailers: ‘Keep your mouths shut about our president’, this Cleveland, Tennessee resident spoke of how she is “showing her support for President Trump by returning clothes to, and refusing to shop at TJ Maxx” in the wake of the chain dropping Ivanka Trump’s clothing and jewellery lines.

 

Ms Veazey – whose previous spending pattern at the store was around £805 ($1,000, €945 or درهم3,700) per month – remarked:

 

“When TJ Maxx tries to make a statement against the president’s family, that to me is just unnecessary”.

 

“It’s really cramped my style but you’ve got to stand by your principles. I’ve resisted the temptation to go”.

 

Later in the feature, Ms Veazey conveniently announced she had actually thrown her Trump-fuelled boycott to the wind and returned to TJ Maxx. She announced:

 

“The mother ship [TJ Maxx] called and I had a moment of weakness… I broke down and went in… I mean, $24 for a nice dress? I just couldn’t resist. Gosh, I’m not a very good boycotter. But, I’m trying”.

 

If you’re going to have “principles”, stick to them. If you’re not, keep quiet. Rachel Veazey truly is a hypocrite and for that reason we make this silly shopper our Wally of the Week.
