Ladle Rat Rotten Hut

The Exploratorium shares this interesting version of a classic fairy tale as part of a lesson by language professor Howard L. Chace on how we communicate. You can read the text online, but you'll need RealPlayer to truly appreciate it. It begins:

Wants pawn term, dare worsted ladle gull hoe lift wetter murder inner ladle cordage, honor itch offer lodge dock florist.
For more examples of such writing, see Chace's Anguish Languish. And here's a bit of an interview with Chace about the genre.
