Scrumbler will scramble any bit of text you feed it such that the first and last letters stay the same, but everything else is scrambled.
Aoccdrnig to rscheearch at Cmabrigde uinervtisy, it deosn't mttaer waht oredr the ltteers in a wrod are, the olny iprmoetnt tihng is taht the frist and lsat ltteres are at the rghit pclae. The rset can be a tatol mses and you can sitll raed it wouthit a porbelm. Tihs is bcuseae we do not raed ervey lteter by it slef but the wrod as a wlohe.
In other news, the Cambridge research meme may be bunkum: http://www.snopes.com/language/apocryph/cambridge.asp
Still, reading garbage is fun.
Scrumbler is a gem:
gem install scrumbler
First, you should require the gem:
require 'rubygems' require 'scrumbler'
Once this is done, Scrumbler can be activated in a number of ways. You can use a class method:
Scrumbler.scrumble('The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog.') => "The qucik bworn fox jupms oevr the lazy dog."
...or instatiate it:
Scrumbler.new('The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog.').scrumbled => "The qucik bworn fox jmups over the lazy dog."
... or, if you're feeling naughty, you can ask Scrumbler to monkeypatch String:
'The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog.'.scrumble NoMethodError: undefined method `scrumble' for "The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog.":String Scrumble.release_the_monkeys! => nil 'The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog.'.scrumble => "The qciuk bowrn fox jpmus over the lazy dog."
