Word games


Wordle is a Java-based web toy which generates random arrangements of words from any text input. This is the result after pasting in the opening of the “Sirens” chapter of Joyce’s Ulysses and playing around with the colour and font settings. Fun, but as far as web-based toys go I prefer the abstractions of Bomomo.

While we’re on the subject of word-scrambling, Weird Tales magazine has announced a writing contest: write a story— 500 words or less—based on a spam headline you’ve received. The spam waiting to be purged in my trash folder doesn’t offer much in the way of inspiration: “Paris Hilton charges for pussy”, “Tyra to go undercover ass a man iin a rapper’s posse”. More interesting is the recent comment spam I received (none of which you ever see here, thanks to Akismet), a funny conflation of Bible quotes, porn links and stray words from a novel. Once the links are removed, all the text runs together and the result looks like this:

  1. John,

    This mixture of scripture and suggestiveness is funny. The line that really made me laugh is:

    hand job mature impotent man answered him, Sir, I have no man, when the water is

    I can’t say that I know why I think it is so funny but….


  2. I suppose impotence would explain why he doesn’t have a man. Or maybe he gives bad hand jobs.

  3. I am contemporary artist myself and felt I just had to leave a comment on your blog. What I have seen here today really is something special. I will definately bookmark your blog and recommend it to my friends and family. I wish you only the very best for the future.

  4. Hi John. Makes me wonder what 1000 chimpanzees selecting from a pool of carefully chosen words might produce?!! For the more serious word play lover with something of a gambling streak, I like this site: http://www.anagramania.com. It’s somewhat addictive for the cryptic crossword puzzler like me.
