Hi, reader. I wrote this in 2003 and it's now more than five years old. So it may be very out of date; the world, and I, have changed a lot since I wrote it! I'm keeping this up for historical archive purposes, but the me of today may 100% disagree with what I said then. I rarely edit posts after publishing them, but if I do, I usually leave a note in italics to mark the edit and the reason. If this post is particularly offensive or breaches someone's privacy, please contact me.

Better sites than mine have already noted The Eater of Meaning, but I especially adore what it does to pages that were already nonsense.

Update: Favorite phrases scammed from meaning-eaten zombie pages:

  • Bacon pi
  • Attitude Mistake
  • Despotic Roundhouse
  • Surely Evilly In Example
  • Alumni Overestimated
  • Axle Bandits
  • Soya Monkey
  • Saguaro Switchings
  • Zest Committees

These remind me of Alexei.

Also, I could be "Summons Harmony."
