Lorem Ipsum

Editor's note: It was not until after rejecting this submission from Prof C that I learned from lipsum.com that Lorem Ipsum is "dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry," and then I noticed that Prof C's submission had in fact been generated by said website!

Dear Prof C,

Thank you for your submission "Lorem Ipsum" to the Journal of Universal Rejection.

Your submission appeared to be in Latin.  Although our motto (and therefore our blog title) are in Latin, that is no reason to send us submissions in that dead language.  We don't read Latin.  And if our motto is correct it is pure luck.  (We are assuming it must be at this point, having not heard the contrary from some snooty Latin-ptyalizing academician.)

Oh, back to your submission:  it is rejected.

Best regards,

Caleb Emmons, PhD
