A girl with colitis goes by…

March 29, 2012 § 4 Comments

In the early days of the web, Am I Right was one of the funniest sites there was: a database of misheard lyrics. The misunderstanding of the psychedelic Beatles lyrics “A girl with kaleidoscope eyes” with the absurdist “A girl with colitis goes by” is still one of the funniest things I’ve ever heard.

And now there is a wonderful infograph by direct lyrics, to summarize the most common mistakes. Wasn’t it about time?

Don’t tell me that you haven’t come across with these absurd Latin words? Lorem ipsum text is a placeholder text, used in graphic design to show how a web page/a mock up will look with real words once completed. It derives from sections 1.10.32–3 of Cicero’s De finibus bonorum et malorum and makes no sense at all.

However, it seems that designers and other internet professionals got bored with the classic dummy text and new word generators pop up more and more often. Well, there is a text version for every taste.
