This was originally a project for a data structures and algorithms course.
Input a reasonably long chunk of text and press Babble to get your result. The aim of this simple program is to produce an output that makes semi-grammatical sense at first glance, but doesn't make much logical sense when you actually try reading it. More text is always better; use at least a paragraph for best results. Song lyrics can often produce amusing results.
The "Babbliness" factor determines how closely the output will match the input. Output with a Babbliness value of 5 will not resemble the input very much at all and will probably not make much grammatical sense, while output with a Babbliness value of 1 will make good grammatical sense but possibly be nearly identical to the input text.
Sample inputs: Green Eggs and Ham Goldilocks and the Three Bears Still Alive Declaration of Independence Gospel of Luke Romeo and Juliet
