Even if you absolutely love your job as a web developer or designer, there are still times when we could benefit from adding a little more whimsy to our day. A great way to do this is with a free, fun, and harmless filler text generator. It’s a standard practice to use the old Latin Lorem Ipsum… text as a placeholder for actual test in a preliminary design or product, so why not spice it up a bit? What follows is a list of fun and free text generators that are sure to put a smile on the face of anyone who comes across them.

1. Bacon Ipsum

What's the one thing every developer wants? More screens! Enhance your coding experience with an external monitor to increase screen real estate.

Bacon Ipsum is one of the more popular alternate text filler generators. Basically what it does is insert the names of meats, cuts of meat, and meat dishes into an otherwise standard Lorem Ipsum passage.

2. Samuel L. Ipsum

Instead of the standard Lorem Ipsum, this generator gives you text straight out of a Samuel L. Jackson movie. It’s definitely not suitable for work, but if you’re really determined to use it in a project, there’s a “lite” version of the plugin that generates text sans any profanities (there’s also a “classic” version that generates the quotes sprinkled in with some Lorem Ipsum, if you’re a traditionalist).

3. Cat Ipsum

If you’re not a cat person then you might not appreciate this one. Cat Ipsum generates text that reads like a stream of consciousness from a cat. It also gives you the option to start it off with a little Latin or to just dive straight into the mind of a feline.

4. Yorkshire Ipsum

This generator provides text meant to mimic the accent of a person from Yorkshire, England. The accent is famously hard to understand, so depending on where you’re from and you who are, Yorkshire Ipsum could be more difficult to decipher than classic Latin.

5. Hodor Ipsum

Unless you’re a Game of Thrones fan, this text generator probably won’t interest you. The only word that the generator provides for you is, naturally, Hodor. But at least the passages are punctuated. Choose from the dropdown list how many Hodors you want — each Hodor corresponds to another paragraph of, yeah, Hodor.

6. Hipster Ipsum

Hipster Ipsum generates paragraphs of text that only include hipster words — quinoa, listicle, venmo, bicycle, sriracha, williamsburg, etc.

7. Pirate Ipsum

Pirate Ipsum will generate a block of text that is all in “pirate speak” — think a lot of “ayes,” “scaleywags,” and “mateys.”

8. Office Ipsum

Office Ipsum generates a collection of text having to do with work and office environments. Basically, it’s a huge list of business buzzwords that you’ve probably heard a thousand times before in hundreds of meetings or conference calls.

9. Cheese Ipsum

Because you can never have too much cheese in your life, this text generator gives you a list of so many different types of cheeses that your mouth will be watering just reading it. This isn’t just a list of snotty, high-brow cheese either — queso is listed right next to camembert.

10. Hairy Ipsum

This generator is for those who want to add a little manly ruggedness to their projects. The generator will provide you with a list of words that are the pinnacle of masculinity — mustache, boxing champion, etc.
