Far far away

Far far away, behind the word moun­tains, far from the coun­tries Vokalia and Con­so­nan­tia, there live the blind texts. Sep­a­rat­ed they live in Book­marks­grove right at the coast of the Seman­tics, a large lan­guage ocean. A small riv­er named Duden flows by their place and sup­plies it with the nec­es­sary regelialia.

It is a par­adis­e­mat­ic coun­try, in which roast­ed parts of sen­tences fly into your mouth. Even the all-pow­er­ful Point­ing has no con­trol about the blind texts it is an almost unortho­graph­ic life.

One day how­ev­er a small line of blind text by the name of Lorem Ipsum decid­ed to leave for the far World of Gram­mar.

The Big Oxmox advised her not to do so, because there were thou­sands of bad Com­mas, wild Ques­tion Marks and devi­ous Semi­koli, but the Lit­tle Blind Text didn’t lis­ten.

She packed her sev­en ver­salia, put her ini­tial into the belt and made her­self on the way. When she reached the first hills of the Ital­ic Moun­tains, she had a last view back on the sky­line of her home­town Book­marks­grove, the head­line of Alpha­bet Vil­lage and the sub­line of her own road, the Line Lane. Pity­ful a rethor­ic ques­tion ran over her cheek, then she con­tin­ued her way. On her way she met a copy.

The copy warned the Lit­tle Blind Text, that where it came from it would have been rewrit­ten a thou­sand times and every­thing that was left from its ori­gin would be the word “and” and the Lit­tle Blind Text should turn around and return to its own, safe coun­try.

But noth­ing the copy said could con­vince her and so it didn’t take long until a few insid­i­ous Copy Writ­ers ambushed her, made her drunk with Longe and Parole and dragged her into their agency, where they abused her for their projects again and again.

And if she hasn’t been rewrit­ten, then they are still using her.
