Picksum Ipsum

Choose from a selection of famous movie stars and behold, some appropriate-sounding text is generated. I expected Michael Caine ipsum to be rendered in capital letters, but that didn’t happen.

Sample ipsum: “You are as precious to me as you were to your own mother and father. I swore to them that I would protect you, and I haven’t. You wouldn’t hit a man with no trousers on, would you?”

Gangsta Lorem Ipsum 

If you’re listening to Snoop and on the lookout for some placeholder text then aim here.

Sample ipsum: “Lorizzle ipsizzle dolor break yo neck, yall izzle, fizzle adipiscing elit. Nullizzle shizzlin dizzle velizzle, fo shizzle volutpizzle, yo ass, you son of a bizzle vizzle, break it down.”

Samuel L Ipsum

I shouldn’t need to tell you that this is NSFW.

Sample ipsum: “Do you see any Teletubbies in here? Do you see a slender plastic tag clipped to my shirt with my name printed on it? Do you see a little Asian child with a blank expression on his face sitting outside on a mechanical helicopter that shakes when you put quarters in it?” 


Django Ipsum

This is Samuel L Jackson turned up to 11. Use sparingly.

Sample ipsum: “Those lyin’ goddamn time wastin’ sonsabitches! Sonsabitches! You just watch, I’m gonna fix their wagon but good!”


Northern folk, or anybody who has been watching Educating Yorkshire should love this.

Sample ipsum: “Ey up appens as maybe. Appens as maybe chuffin’ nora eeh. Nobbut a lad any rooad wacken thi sen up cack-handed big girl’s blouse. Th’art nesh thee soft lad.”


Charlie Sheen Ipsum

Close your windows, bolt your doors, and brace yourself for action.

Sample ipsum: “There’s my life. Deal with it. Oh, wait! Can’t process it. Losers! WINNING! B’bye. Major League 3? I don’t know. I haven’t read it. I don’t care.”


If you’re looking for something a little bit more highbrow then this tool makes good use of classic literature.

Sample ipsum: “Their awesome, bestial faces were contorted in the most diabolical expressions, as they accused each other of responsibility for the loss. Finally they fell upon us, beating us with their spear shafts, and hatchets.”


Bullshit Ipsum

I’ve seen press releases that are even less meaningful. 

Sample ipsum: “Strategize robust harness integrate synergistic efficient users disintermediate. Cluetrain maximize long-tail granular synergize.”


Skate Ipsum

Goofy text for grinders. 

Sample ipsum: “Boned out rocket air masonite ho-ho ollie north coping late. Grind betty camel back cess slide crail slide nosepicker grab.”

Bacon Ipsum 

For meat fans. 

Sample ipsum: “Beef ribs sausage pancetta, pork shank bacon short ribs. Drumstick hamburger short loin t-bone fatback beef. Pork loin chicken ribeye bresaola flank ball tip strip steak venison.”


TV Themes Ipsum

Your favourite 80s TV themes rendered as dummy text.

Sample ipsum: “Ten years ago a crack commando unit was sent to prison by a military court for a crime they didn’t commit. These men promptly escaped from a maximum security stockade to the Los Angeles underground. Today, still wanted by the government, they survive as soldiers of fortune. If you have a problem and no one else can help, and if you can find them, maybe you can hire the A-team.”

Swearem Ipsum

Five parts Latin to one part profanity. 

Sample ipsum: “Phasellus aliquam justo cock arcu gravida porttitor. Duis interdum nisi vitae enim rutrum in viverra dui consectetur. Mauris id purus dui. Integer id dick sem.”


Lebowski Ipsum

Do you abide?

Sample ipsum: “My point, Dude, is why should we settle for twenty grand when we can keep the entire million. Am I wrong? Placerat posuere neque, at dignissim magna ullamcorper in aliquam.”


IT Crowd Ipsum 

For Graham Linehan fans…

Sample ipsum: “You’re not comfortable with your sexuality? Oh, I’m very comfortable with my sexuality, I just don’t want to be slapped in the face with their sexuality.”

Cupcake Ipsum

Dummy text, with sprinkles.

Sample ipsum: “Chupa chups sweet candy canes fruitcake toffee. Danish gingerbread lemon drops chocolate cake pastry jelly-o pie topping carrot cake. Halvah sweet roll cookie.”


Hipster Ipsum

Earlier this week I read that somebody had coined an excellent new collective noun: “A fixie a hipsters”

Sample ipsum: “Food truck drinking vinegar tattooed tote bag, McSweeney’s mollit qui dolore velit magna Etsy. Distillery Etsy meh pork belly, before they sold out pickled art party beard.”
