Bacon Ipsum: Making Your Dummy Text Yummy

Bacon Ipsum: Making Your Dummy Text Yummy

A new dummy text generator uses words that may leave you craving for meat after a day of designing.

Don Michael Acelar De Leon

 

Virtually any designer out there has grown too familiar with the Latin dummy text “Lorem Ipsum.” Thankfully, software developer Pete Nelson has created a tasty (and meaty) alternative, Bacon Ipsum. The new word generator works similar to Lorem Ipsum, but instead of incomprehensible Latin, Bacon Ipsum uses delicious words such as these:

Tri-tip chuck rump pork loin beef, ham hock ball tip jowl ham t-bone strip steak meatloaf pig short ribs. Pastrami pork pork chop bresaola beef. Pastrami bresaola beef pork hamburger pork chop fatback. Flank turkey pork shankle bacon. Biltong corned beef short ribs beef ribs pork belly tri-tip short loin ham hock sirloin tongue venison flank, t-bone rump bresaola. Chuck shoulder jerky fatback pancetta. Pig flank chuck, ham shoulder tenderloin salami ribeye short loin.

Pete Nelson tells us more:

Simply put, it’s a take on the lorem ipsum filler text used when doing design mockups.  I was mocking up a web design one day and needed a few words to fill out a link.  ”Lorem ipsum bacon” popped into my head, so I plugged that into my HTML.  Later that day, it hit me.  Make a lorem ipsum generator but use types and cuts of meat.
