Journal Hadlock's Journal: infinite number of monkies and a FINITE amount of time...

if you wrote a program that would grab all the words of a specific text into a wordbank database, and then randomly string them together in random sentences, adding punctuation with primitive grammar algorithms.
write a program that takes these sentences and strings them together into a screenplay that is a length between x chars long and x sentences (ap strings?) long....say about the length of a shakespeaian play.
output this to a .txt file, and write a program that matches the .txt file up against the original document, saving those documents that match up to 75% or higher. would be interesting to read. sounds like a fun project.... or somthing.
