Random text generator

Nonsense generates random, occasionally humorous text from datafiles and templates using a very simple, recursive grammar. It can produce random Slashdot headlines, silly GNU/Linux portal domain names, absurd college course titles, and other amusing outputs. Nonsense generates random (and sometimes humorous) text. It's like having a million monkeys sitting in front of a million typewriters, without having to feed or clean up after them. An excellent way to waste time.
