11 quirky Lorem Ipsum generators

Lorem ipsum placeholder text dates all the way back to the 16th century. Used originally as a sample printing text, it’s been widely adopted across the web by designers and developers wanting realistic and natural looking text before the real website copy has been supplied.

Whilst the original lorem ipsum consists of Latin-looking text, the web has seen the creation of various themed generators covering everything from 50 Shades of Grey to cats. We’ve put together the list of the quirkiest – yet still practical – lorem ipsum generators we’ve come across.
