lorem-ipsum-cicero.pngLorem Ipsum is a placeholder text used with the intention of represent text filled spaces used in publishing, editorial, graphic and web design.

Basically represents and it is used to demonstrate how the final text would look like. The orginal version is scrambled section from the original “De finibus bonorum et malorum”, a 1st-century BC text in Latin, written by Cicero. Used since the 1500s, it was popularized in the 60s by the advertisements for Letraset transfer letters sets. Later in the 80s it was used in the graphics and word processor software PageMaker for Apple Macintosh.

Actually, there are a lot of funny variations from the original, here we compile some of the originals and some of the funniest:

The original “Lorem Ipsum” Latin text:

  • Sed ut perspiciatis, unde omnis iste natus error sit voluptatem accusantium doloremque laudantium, totam rem aperiam eaque ipsa, quae ab illo inventore veritatis et quasi architecto beatae vitae dicta sunt, explicabo. Nemo enim ipsam voluptatem, quia voluptas sit, aspernatur aut odit aut fugit, sed quia consequuntur magni dolores eos, qui ratione voluptatem sequi nesciunt, neque porro quisquam est, qui dolorem ipsum, quia dolor sit amet consectetur adipisci[ng] velit, sed quia non numquam [do] eius modi tempora inci[di]dunt, ut labore et dolore magnam aliquam quaerat voluptatem. Ut enim ad minima veniam, quis nostrumexercitationem ullam corporis suscipit laboriosam, nisi ut aliquid ex ea commodi consequatur? Quis autem vel eum iure reprehenderit, qui in ea voluptate velit esse, quam nihil molestiae consequatur, vel illum, quidolorem eum fugiat, quo voluptas nulla pariatur?

The well-known “Lorem Ipsum”, scramble from original and used since 1500s:

  • Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit, sed do eiusmod tempor incididunt ut labore et dolore magna aliqua. Ut enim ad minim veniam, quis nostrud exercitation ullamco laboris nisi ut aliquip ex ea commodo consequat. Duis aute irure dolor in reprehenderit in voluptate velit esse cillum dolore eu fugiat nulla pariatur. Excepteur sint occaecat cupidatat non proident, sunt in culpa qui officia deserunt mollit anim id est laborum.

A very sweet and trendy variation, the “Cupcake Ipsum”:

  • Cupcake ipsum dolor sit amet lollipop. Macaroon candy cotton candy bear claw macaroon carrot cake pastry icing dessert. Cupcake pastry tart sesame snaps lollipop donut pie. Cookie apple pie toffee lemon drops jelly beans cheesecake sweet roll. Jelly-o soufflé donut candy canes wafer dragée sweet cheesecake. Macaroon caramels pie cookie gummi bears. Ice cream jelly-o toffee cookie gingerbread cookie. Soufflé fruitcake jelly-o jelly chupa chups jelly beans. Dragée marzipan pastry macaroon oat cake muffin soufflé topping liquorice. Jelly-o chocolate cake lollipop.

The Samuel L. Ipsum version, the “SlipIpsum”:

  • The path of the righteous man is beset on all sides by the iniquities of the selfish and the tyranny of evil men. Blessed is he who, in the name of charity and good will, shepherds the weak through the valley of darkness, for he is truly his brother’s keeper and the finder of lost children. And I will strike down upon thee with great vengeance and furious anger those who would attempt to poison and destroy My brothers. And you will know My name is the Lord when I lay My vengeance upon thee. (from: http://slipsum.com)

As you can see, the last two from this list, have nothing in common with the original but the fact that are used for text fills, and a funny touch. I will keep this post updated as soon as I find more Ipsums.
