Travesty poetry, anyone?

http://www.eskimo.com/~rstarr/poormfa/travesty.html

Don't try to ask me what it is. I don't fully understand. You can read the explanation if you want, but it just confuses me.

I think it takes random combinations of letters from an entered text and flings them together into some kind of cyber-poem.

So here's one I made using this post from an RP of mine; set to order 4 and 1000 characters:
Ten Minutes Ago In a deciduous forest, in ears tuned to get the forestored

To make things more interesting, I have now made three different ones using order 3 and 250 characters out of this post of Asmo's.

...Apparently there's something else on that website called "diastic reading" here that's supposed to go hand-in-hand with the travesty generator. So I tried that with the thing I made in the first post from one of my RP posts, using the key phrase "wolf talking" and 25 words of output. It gave me this:

wolf talking

Well, this poetry is a travesty, all right. Here's what a brief synopsis of a potential RP turned into.

Original Text: "In a world full of cheese, men and women alike line up to gather cheddar and swiss. Courageous and proud, these adventurers fight for what they believe in: a congealed dairy product."

"In alike line up to gathey believe in: a world full of cheddar and swiss.
Courageous and swiss. Courageous and swiss. Courageous and women a congealed
dairy product.In and product.In alike line up to gather cheese, men and
product.In alike line up to gather cheddar and world full of cheddar and
world full of cheddar and swiss. Courageous and swiss. Courageous and proud,
these, men a world full of cheese adventurers fight for what ther cheese
adventurers fight for what these adventurers fight for what the"

"What the..." indeed.
