If only someone could write a whole book like this

Leave It to Beaver dummy text:

It starts off:

This paragraph has absolutely nothing to do with anything.
It is here merely to fill up space. Still, it is words,
rather than repeated letters, since the latter might not
give the proper appearance, namely, that of an actual note.

That is awesome. I love it.

When I was recapping Lipstick Jungle for Television Without Pity I took special delight in pausing the DVR to study their half-assed props. Once they had a newspaper article about one of the principle characters, and the text was actually a story about Ann Heche's divorce, lifted from MSNBC online and copied-and-pasted twice to fill the space. Lazy.

LOST isn't lazy — I remember at the end of season 1 you could go online and find shots of the newspaper that he's holding, and the story is relevant to the plot. (Or something....as you can see, I barely have any memory of this anymore.)

yes! i love this. it's like that ron padgett (if i remember correctly) poem where he has hit and damaged a car so he writes a poem that says this poem is to make it look like i am leaving you a note with my insurance information.
