When making drafts for websites, many web designers use the following paragraphs to fill in for content:

Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit. Vivamus laoreet interdum leo, id elementum augue posuere sit amet. Morbi non est tortor. Suspendisse accumsan ligula quis lorem vestibulum ac mollis nunc vulputate. Donec rhoncus dui et libero rhoncus et tristique lacus feugiat. Praesent ornare sem in ipsum condimentum id dapibus dolor rhoncus. Duis placerat faucibus lorem, quis suscipit justo porttitor aliquam. Aliquam varius ante non tortor rutrum tincidunt. Sed accumsan felis tristique nibh fringilla at scelerisque arcu luctus. Nulla rhoncus, eros vitae lacinia ultricies, urna orci luctus velit, non faucibus dolor ligula a lorem. Sed consequat, purus nec vehicula iaculis, dui arcu dapibus nulla, in gravida erat sapien sed ante. Proin facilisis, ante eleifend sollicitudin suscipit, magna metus dignissim mauris, ut iaculis turpis nunc in odio. Vivamus odio felis, sollicitudin sed adipiscing non, porta ut enim.

The latin has some kind of meaning but for most of us, it doesn’t mean anything. Web designers like to use this text to illustrate the font and spacing of what real content would look like.

For me, I prefer words I recognize. I found Bacon Ipsum. The random text displayed looks something like this:

Flank pork chop hamburger kielbasa biltong. Strip steak rump ham hock, beef ribs spare ribs kielbasa brisket frankfurter speck jowl. Speck bacon cow, tri-tip filet mignon pork loin leberkas shank chuck pork prosciutto short loin boudin pastrami jowl. Speck ground round boudin, capicola short loin swine turkey tri-tip fatback tongue chuck tenderloin strip steak. Corned beef bacon t-bone, biltong capicola leberkas pork shoulder. Rump pork belly leberkas ham hock, meatloaf shank turducken filet mignon bacon turkey bresaola jerky.

For complete website mockups, I also like to add pictures. Forget the pictures of cover shots or studio pictures. Let’s add some pictures of meat. For pictures, I use baconmockup.com.
