Dummy Text: 14 Creative, Fun, and Delicious Lorem Ipsum Generators

lorem-ipsum-generators

Lorem Ipsum is the traditional dummy text of typesetters (and subsequently graphic designers everywhere) since at least the 1960s. Web developers have also taken lorem ipsum and have run with it.

Why? Because building a website is a lot like assembling a puzzle. And like a puzzle, some parts get built earlier than others.

Sometimes, you need some placeholder text to fill in for content that is coming later.

Lorem Ipsum has been great for this purpose. It’s the pseudo-Latin text that looks real enough to be used as dummy content but fake enough that it doesn’t actually mean anything.

This being the Internet, various creative nerds have taken it upon themselves to update Lorem Ipsum to something a bit more fun.

The next time you’re working on a project, try one of these to bring some sass to you comp.

Fillerama

Fillerama

Lorem Ipsum filled with bits from some of your favorite nerdy shows including: Arrested Developement, Doctor Who, Dexter, Futurama, Monty Python, The Simpsons and Star Wars. The force is strong with this one.

I have traced the Rebel spies to her. Now she is my only link to finding their secret base. Hokey religions and ancient weapons are no match for a good blaster at your side, kid. I need your help, Luke. She needs your help. I’m getting too old for this sort of thing. What!? You mean it controls your actions? As you wish.

Zombie Ipsum

Zombie Ipsum

Lorem Ipsum is not a real language. It doesn’t mean anything. However, it’s modeled on Latin. A dead language. (Or if you’re in high school, you might call it an undead language. Heh.) So it’s no wonder that somebody took zombies and mashed them together with lorem ipsum.

Zombie ipsum reversus ab viral inferno, nam rick grimes malum cerebro. De carne lumbering animata corpora quaeritis. Summus brains sit​​, morbo vel maleficia? De apocalypsi gorger omero undead survivor dictum mauris. Hi mindless mortuis soulless creaturas, imo evil stalking monstra adventus resi dentevil vultus comedat cerebella viventium.

Bacon Ipsum

Bacon Ipsum

There are more food related lorem ipsum generators than just about anything else. We kick our food ipsum generators off with bacon. Like a man.

Bacon ipsum dolor sit amet turkey pariatur shankle shoulder et tempor short loin short ribs magna sunt pork belly consectetur beef ribs occaecat pork loin. Do dolor corned beef laborum. Doner shank consequat tempor, sirloin et eiusmod andouille pork loin minim sunt pork belly tongue laboris. Nisi spare ribs excepteur, in leberkas eiusmod labore pariatur. Excepteur tri-tip cillum occaecat in pastrami tempor tongue.

Veggie Ipsum

Veggie Ipsum

If you’re making a website for the ladies (heeeyyyy!), they’re not going to respect your proficient perpetuation of perfect porcine products. They want something a bit more healthy. But not too healthy. I mean… vegans. Pfft. For the lighter websites (or those that are just looking to shed a few kilobits), there’s Veggie Ipsum.

Rutabaga parsnip epazote tomato soko groundnut. Sorrel seakale squash salsify bok choy bunya nuts dulse. Salad salad kombu endive potato water chestnut cress squash gumbo sorrel radicchio chard lentil burdock.

Vegan Ipsum

Vegan Ipsum

This site used to live at veganipsum.com but apparently it forgot to eat and it died. But nothing ever truly goes away on the Internet and I found another copy of the Vegan Ipsum generator just so you can annoy the guy who uses the Bacon Ipsum generator above. You know that guy’s cholesterol must be through the roof.

Green bean turnip greens tomato cassava, orache, scallion lima bean, horseradish summer purslane tinda. Velvet bean pigeon pea indian pea jícama, swede. Manioc, tomato, corn salad cauliflower. Endive horse gram cardoon.

Cupcake Ipsum

Cupcake Ipsum

This is one of my favorite Ipsum generators. Maybe it’s the style of the website, which is just perfect. Or maybe it’s the text which is filled with lovely words that are pretty fun to read by themselves. This copy always goes over well with my clients. Highly recommended.

Tiramisu candy canes chocolate cake cupcake marshmallow sweet gummies ice cream jelly-o. Jelly-o gummies candy canes powder chocolate bar candy tootsie roll marshmallow. Lemon drops chocolate macaroon chocolate sugar plum. Jelly cake bonbon sweet chocolate bar jelly-o.

Marzipan carrot cake donut candy canes pastry jelly beans. Wafer halvah topping halvah icing pastry ice cream dessert. Brownie pudding caramels sweet icing cotton candy pastry. Wypas bonbon halvah marshmallow.

Liquor Ipsum

Liquor Ipsum

Unless your clients are alcoholics. If that’s the case, then forget the cupcakes and hit up this liquor cabinet of lorem ipsum.

One-balled dictator irish flag, “ligula adipiscing haig & haig “pinch” interdum widow’s cork scelerisque, quis etiam amet allt-á-bhainne.” Lemon split cactus jack, netus abhainn dearg, tempus jack rose rutrum tempus critty bo ut glenglassaugh, habitant ut senectus. Benriach jack daniel’s buck’s fizz primis golden doublet lacus, tequila sunrise hendrerit; nisi golden dream velit. Whiskey.

Hipster Ipsum

Hipster Ipsum

Sometimes you want your dummy text to be better than you. Or if not better exactly, then at least you want it to feel like it thinks its better than you. That’s hipster ipsum in a nutshell. With oversized glasses. Can’t forget those.

Raw denim ethical pour-over readymade. Tumblr narwhal tattooed american apparel +1, fanny pack mixtape locavore. Butcher cred cosby sweater fanny pack portland pour-over. Tumblr pitchfork vice blog, leggings hashtag cosby sweater fanny pack. Wayfarers pickled occupy irony, polaroid cardigan photo booth echo park. Gastropub DIY mustache wayfarers gluten-free wes anderson, artisan cray gentrify portland flexitarian thundercats. American apparel fanny pack butcher mcsweeney’s direct trade.

Samuel L. Ipsum

Samuel L. Ipsum

If you have cool clients who don’t like sweets, this is my second go-to ipsum generator. Like Sam Jackson, a lot of what it says is NSFW, so be smart before you start sending profanity laden comps up the flagpole. That being said, this generator will definitely help you get the motherfuckin’ words on the motherfuckin’ page!

Now that we know who you are, I know who I am. I’m not a mistake! It all makes sense! In a comic, you know how you can tell who the arch-villain’s going to be? He’s the exact opposite of the hero. And most times they’re friends, like you and me! I should’ve known way back when… You know why, David? Because of the kids. They called me Mr. Glass.

TV Theme Song Ipsum

TV Ipsum

Have you ever wanted the text from the theme songs of your favorite 70’s, 80’s, and 90’s shows on your page? Now that’s possible with this generator. Even better, drop this text on your comp and watch half the office asks you why you’re referencing that lukewarm A-Team movie.

And we know Flipper lives in a world full of wonder flying there-under under the sea! Why do we always come here? I guess well never know. Its like a kind of torture to have to watch the show. In 1972 a crack commando unit was sent to prison by a military court for a crime they didn’t commit. These men promptly escaped from a maximum security stockade to the Los Angeles underground. I have always wanted to have a neighbor just like you. I’ve always wanted to live in a neighborhood with you. The ship set ground on the shore of this uncharted desert isle with Gilligan the Skipper too the millionaire and his wife.

Charlie Sheen Ipsum

Charlie Sheen Ipsum

When your dummy text absolutely, positively, without a shadow of a doubt includes lots of WINNING.

And I’m … you know … most of the time. And this includes naps! You know, I’m an F-18, bro. And I will destroy you in the air. And I will deploy my ordinance to the ground. And, uh ….

I’m gonna hang out with these two smokin’ hotties and fly privately around the world. You know, it might be lonely up here, but I sure like the view, Alex.

You know? Dealing with soft targets, and it’s just strafing runs in my underwear before my first cup of coffee because I don’t have time for these clowns. I don’t have time for their judgment and their stupidity and …. (sighs)

Swearem Ipsum

Swearem Ipsum

This generator is for your inner 13-year old who wants nothing more in life than to hide the word jizz inside fake Latin. Well, now you can. Mission Accomplished.

Swearem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit. Aliquam scelerisque accumsan jizz, a mattis eros vestibulum et. Vestibulum placerat purus ut nibh aliquam fringilla. Aenean et tortor diam, id tempor elit. Vivamus sagittis ornare tempor. Nullam lacinia metus vel diam tempor cumbubble consequat ligula porttitor. Vestibulum mollis pellentesque hendrerit. Sed faucibus venenatis accumsan. Quisque ut gravida metus. Nam sed neque magna, in fermentum ligula. Praesent a diam tincidunt odio semper consequat.

Ladle Rat Rotten Hut

Ladle Rat Rotten Hut

This isn’t a lorem ipsum generator per se but it’s one of the best and most hilarious versions of Little Red Riding Hood, so I’m including it. When I was a kid, my Mom used to recite this to me and we’d crack up laughing. See, this is no ordinary version of Little Red Riding Hood. Instead of telling the story directly, it uses homophones to do so. And no, those aren’t gay headphones. Those are words that sound alike. So “once upon a time” becomes “wants pawn term”. It’s good enough that you won’t read it as sensical text, which is good for design. But it’s also good enough that if you read it out loud, people will, for the most part, be able to follow the original story.

Wants pawn term, dare worsted ladle gull hoe lift wetter murder inner ladle cordage, honor itch offer lodge dock florist. Disk ladle gull orphan worry ladle cluck wetter putty ladle rat hut, an fur disk raisin pimple colder Ladle Rat Rotten Hut.

Wan moaning, Rat Rotten Hut’s murder colder inset, “Ladle Rat Rotten Hut, heresy ladle basking winsome burden barter an shirker cockles. Tick disk ladle basking tutor cordage offer groin-murder hoe lifts honor udder site offer florist. Shaker lake! Dun stopper laundry wrote! An yonder nor sorghum-stenches, dun stopper torque wet strainers!”

Fifty Shades Generator – Based on the book “Fifty Shades of Gray”

By now, my hot pocket was draining like a hungry pig at a trough. Hours of pounding like this would leave any girl’s piss flaps looking like a werewolf with it’s throat cut, and I was no different! When he removed his blood-engorged mayonnaise cannon from my chocolate starfish, he was pleasantly surprised to see a footlong fudge bullet staring back as him. He knew I couldn’t wait to suck the sewer trout off his one-eyed monster. Within no time, I could feel the shitty Da Vinci load draining from my ring piece and all over my open-faced ham sandwich. The mixture of butt nugget and penis pudding in my fart valve created the delicious rectoplasm that he was so fond of.
