Far behind, behind the mountains of words, far away from the countries vowels and consonants, live the dummy texts. They live secluded in Buchstabhausen on the coast of semantics, a large linguistic ocean. A small brook called Duden flows through their village and provides them with the necessary rules. It is a paradisiacal country where fried phrases fly into your mouth. Not even the almighty punctuation dominates the dummy texts – an almost unorthographic life.

But one day a small line of dummy text, her name was Lorem Ipsum, decided to go out into the wide grammar. The great Oxmox advised her not to do so, as it was teeming with bad commas, wild question marks and insidious semicolons, but the dummy text was not to be put off. It grabbed its seven capital letters, put its initial in its belt and set off.

When it had climbed the first hills of the Kursivgebirge, it took a last look back at the skyline of its home town Buchstabhausen, the headline of Alphabetdorf and the subline of its own street, Zeilengasse. A rhetorical question wistfully ran down his cheek, then he continued on his way. On the way it met a copy.

The copy warned the dummy text that where it came from it would have been rewritten umpteen times and all that was left of its origin was the word “and” and the dummy text should turn around and return to its own safe country. But all good talking couldn’t convince it and so it didn’t take long before some sneaky copywriters ambushed it, got it drunk with lunge and slogan and then dragged it to their agency where they misused it again and again for their projects. And if it wasn’t rewritten, they’re still using it.
