Tired of Lorem Ipsum?

When designing websites its pretty easy to grow tiresome of the dummy Lorem Ipsum text repeating itself all the way through your page. Yet today I came across something alternative that could cure us of the banal Lorem Ipsum.

Check out Samuel L Ipsum, and instead of age-old, ancient Latin, fill your pages with a variety of quotes by Samuel L Jackson in a variety of his films.

An example of this dummy text (for your reading pleasure and amusement of course):

<!– start slipsum code –>

<h2>Are you ready for the truth?</h2>
<p>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.</p>

<h2>No, motherfucker</h2>
<p>Do you see any Teletubbies in here? Do you see a slender plastic tag clipped to my shirt with my name printed on it? Do you see a little Asian child with a blank expression on his face sitting outside on a mechanical helicopter that shakes when you put quarters in it? No? Well, that’s what you see at a toy store. And you must think you’re in a toy store, because you’re here shopping for an infant named Jeb.</p>

<!– end slipsum code –>

Go on, and change the way you design webpages. If anything, you’ll make it more fun for yourself!
