Don't panic! Graeme is plagiarizing Vogon poetry! DNA would be thrilled.

Pardon me while I eject Graeme into the vacuum of space.

Right! You asked for it!

"Oh freddled gruntbuggly
thy micturations are to me
As plurdled gabbleblotchits on a lurgid bee.
Groop I implore thee, my foonting turlingdromes.
And hooptiously drangle me with crinkly bindlewurdles,
Or I will rend thee in the gobberwarts with my blurglecruncheon, see if I don't!"

In Xanadu did Kubla Khan
A stately pleasure-dome decree :
Where Alph, the sacred river, ran
Through caverns measureless to man
Down to a sunless sea.

My next favorite...

'Tis bojy, and the reedig blytes
Do clof and plumble in the stex;
All sporky were the usbygreyts,
And the capluk saldypex.

Beware the Twettlyrane, my son!
The drows that flix, and the selz that moart!
Beware the Pyepodd bird, and shun
The Hintzius Jeezeljoert!

Ah, you know the way to my heart. Back in the day when there were typewriters, I would try them out not with

The quick brown fox jumped over the lazy dog

But with

Twas brillig, and the slithy toves...

I took a HTML class once and the teacher used this as a "word placeholder",

I laughed so much I couldn't focus on rest.

Got to know him later, a real Monty Python freak!
