         $SHELL | chef
         newspeak < thesis.tex > newthesis.tex
         eleet | wall # b1ff works well too
         b1ff | ircII | censor


        All  of these programs are filters to do all sorts of strange things to
        text.  No personal, racial, religious or societal slurs  are  intended.
        For amusement only.
        All  the  filters  read input from stdin, change it, and write the fil‐
        tered text to stdout.
        b1ff   The B1FF filter
               Cockney English
        chef   convert English on stdin to Mock Swedish on stdout
        eleet  K3wl hacker slang
        fudd   Elmer Fudd
        jethro Hillbilly text filter
        jive   Jive English
               Runs text through a random selection of the rest of the filters,
               to make really weird output.
        ken    English  into  Cockney,  featuring (dubious) rhyming slang for a
               lot of computer terminology.
        kraut  Generates text with a bad German accent.
        kenny  Generates text as spoken by Kenny on South Park.
        ky00te This program places a very cute (and familiar to FurryMuck fans)
               accent on any text file.
               Wiped out text like can be found in nethack.
        censor CDA-ize text
        nyc    Brooklyn English
        pirate Talk like a pirate.
               Makes  text look like it came from the keyboard of Carsten Hait‐
               Turns honest text into something that is liable to be flagged as
        studly Studly caps.
               Use  glorious  unicode  to the fullest possibile extent. As seen
               previously in many man pages.
               Flips text upside down. Stand on your head and  squint  to  read
               the output.
               Lists samples of the output of all the filters.
