Beware of word clouds

Greetings.

Jewish date:  10 ’Adhar 5770 (Parashath Teṣawweh).

Today’s quasi-holiday:  Gregorian Calendar Day.

Today’s news and commentary:
Today’s weird thing is Wordle - Beautiful Word Clouds, which describes itself thusly:
Wordle is a toy for generating “word clouds” from text that you provide. The clouds give greater prominence to words that appear more frequently in the source text. You can tweak your clouds with different fonts, layouts, and color schemes. The images you create with Wordle are yours to use however you like. You can print them out, or save them to the Wordle gallery to share with your friends.
This is the image I got from feeding this blog into Wordle:

Enjoy (or be confused or something) and share the weirdness.
