Sculpting with words

In sculpture, we make something out of formless clay. Today, I am going to make something out of formless gibberish. I close my eyes and pound the keyboard:

fokepokfewkof ddawfdwdxc

Let’s render this as the first actual words I think of:

Fake pokes of week off, David would exceed

Now let’s refine that some more. make it a bit more grammatical:

Fake pokes and weeks off, David would exceed

“David would exceed what?” I wonder. So I add a bit more gibberish clay to the half-formed pot:

elkfejlgnv opewpog

Rinse and repeat:

Elk feel gnu open pog

Elk feeling gnu’s open pog

The elk feeling the gnu’s open pog

And we finish the product:

Fake pokes and weeks off, David would exceed the elk feeling the gnu’s open pog.

Grammatically sound despite making little sense.

Got writer’s block? Give this a try at home!
