Filler text is a great tool for providing quick and easy placeholder copy. It helps to simulate text, though it has no actual meaning. It’s extremely helpful when using dummy copy for wireframes or in mockups to test typography and fonts. The go-to resource for generating this copy has been lipsum.com, but recently, a new crop of themed-generators has been popping up, adding a touch of humor to your documents. I’ve used a few in my wireframes, but it’s important to note that due to the nature of some of the generated text, you might want revert back to plain ol’ lorem ipsum if you’re planning on presenting the copy as part of a deliverable to your client. Here are some great ones to check out:

Happy generating!
