festoon – memo writer

Festoon prepares a memorandum on any undesired topic, containing length sentences (default is 20) and a specified percent of manufactured nouns (default is 5), suitable for input to troff(1). Options -p -e -t (which may be concatenated as -pet ) create pointless pictures, nonsensical equations and useless tables, respectively.

I remember festoon from back when I was graduate student. I stumbled upon the source on GitHub. I’ve created a GitHub repository with a version that will compile on Linux.
