Snippet: Lipsum

I needed some Lorem Ipsum for a design that I’m working on. So I hit lipsum.com (as always), and it hit me; why in the world couldn’t I turn the lipsum process into a snippet? So here it is. It takes your input and generates replacement words (matching length, and capitalization) extracted from lipsum.com‘s official output (no injection). Now, they say that there are over 200 words in their dictionary, but I generated 100 paragraphs and only ended up with 186 distinct. Oh well. 186 is still pretty good looking. Have fun!

Sample Input:
Contrary to popular belief, Lorem Ipsum is not simply random text. It has roots in a piece of classical Latin literature from 45 BC, making it over 2000 years old.

Sample Output:
Praesent et natoque libero, Curae Magna id dis aenean montes erat. In hac velit ad a morbi ac convallis Proin vestibulum nibh 45 ID, tempor ut quam 2000 fusce hac.
