One of the beauties of computers is their ability to use simple algorithms and, on their basis, elaborate complex constructs that imitate reality. This has been used for many applications and, more recently, in the domain of fractals. However, they need not be so serious. Generators on the Internet are especially widespread, and here you will get to see a number of the best out there.
Nonsense is a CGI program which generates... well, anything. Examples include generated Slashdot homepages, mission statements. and playing cards for Buzzword Bingo.

Serve until the Chamos
Appear and the Chamos
I've lost Chamos of cursing the sun of war
