CajunIpsum – Because – Um – Yeah!

Yesterday I discovered (via Twitter) a new site, Meet the Ipsums. All it does is collect, list, and sample the various Lorem Ipsum generators out there. My new favorite is Cat Ipsum.

After mentioning this on Twitter, my buddy Ryan LeTulle mentioned that he had wanted to build a “Cajun Ipsum.” I decided to see how quickly I could whip one up in Node.js. Turns out – not long at all. Ryan helped out with the design (which is based on the Pure framework) and with the data (as my local friends will tell you, I’m a Yankee and will probably always will be, no matter how much I love it down here ;).

So I present to you another useless Internet-toy, CajunIpsum.com.

If you’re curious, the code behind the site (just a few files) is up on GitHub: https://github.com/cfjedimaster/Cajun-Ipsum.
