Description:

Centimonkey is a simple script, providing you with about 1/100 the text generating power of a monkey at a typewriter.

Painter Mark Tansey has three concentric wheels filled with words meaningful to him which he uses to generate ideas of what to paint. Jorge Luis Borges mentions a mechanism like this in one of his short stories. Mad Libs are also similar.

The script is easy to run (provided you have qt-ruby installed), just unzip and execute the centimonkey.rb file.

Click 'Spin' to see the next construction.

If you are a painter or writer looking for inspiration, or just very bored, you may find this script useful.
