About

This generator performs an MD5 hash of the input. The resulting bits are used to choose a grammatical template:

  • article adj adj animal
  • adj article adj animal

The dictionary can be upgraded to include patterns like:

  • verb article adj noun
  • article adj adj noun
  • article adv adj noun
  • adv verb article noun

and a word for each slot.

The total space is around 43 bits. This may not sound like much, but it doesn't matter.

Software doesn't just run on the computer -- it also runs in each of your users' heads. For many problems with user-facing software, "adding more bits" is the wrong solution. The right solution often involves tapping into the user's natural cognitive and social capabilities.
