Henceforth, you all should refer to me as Pope Unspeakable Billy V!  I love their Pope Name Generator...

A funny thing happened on the way to the SCI Conference...

http://pdos.csail.mit.edu/scigen/

Generate randomly-worded (yet grammatically coherent) computer science papers and the hilarious results of submitting one to an SCI conference...

Brutally funny sad and cryptic all at the same time. I wonder if this concept could be extrapolated to software. A program that does nothing at all, reveals no useful information, but in it's operation and user interaction, appears to be indispensible or essential. I wonder if it would sell if it was priced high enough.Coding Snack?

yep that computer science paper generator is hillarious.

"generative programming" is actually a hot topic in computer science.  see http://www.amazon.co.../product/0201309777/ for example.

but its a very funny idea to make a random shareware programs.. definitely something to think about.. :)
