Created by sigma7: More info here.

This'll be the usual suggestions-plz post; I've got enough going on that I'm not going to add anything to the code unless it's requested. (And yes, a good chunk of the data is raw random-adjective/random-noun and borders on Dada if not pure nonsense, if the two can be distinguished.) There's already a ton of raw data -- some of which is actually recursive -- but there's always room for moar.

Edit: Added blues names and names inspired by Space Mutiny.

Ashley Judd? Can I safely assume that it was just a cut-off U. of Kentucky shirt? Please?

I think that's the best possible interpretation. Or maybe you're dressing up as her supporting cast stint on ST:TNG.

Why this is funny and creepy: My middle name is Jean, and as a child one of my nicknames ('cause it sort of rhymed) was Jelly Bean. I was a bag of jelly beans for Halloween around the age of four or five.

Lo, I am grown and but a single bean now.

Can you give me a link for who Lachienne Foutue d'Enfer is? If I am going to someone's party dressed as her, I at least want to have some idea of the comments that might come my way.

Not a real person. Double-checked on wikipedia and google. Interestingly enough the google results are pretty much all LJ entries of people using this meme.

But side note, roughly translated from French - and I do mean rough; my French isn't that good these days - it means "Bloody hell, bitch"

It was one of the more esoteric suggestions that got sent my way here. Sorry about that.

And today's the first day that I realized (and this has been up and about for far too many years) that some of the results from this, due to its raw randomness, could be completely and totally offensive and inappropriate. And that worries me.

*chuckles* Are you worried about the offensive part or the fact that it has been for years without it occurring to you?

The main reason I asked is because I have someone on my flist who is a total French history buff. She'll probably get a good laugh from it though.

Ha! I'm worried on two wholly separate dimensions. (And I remember going through a random-password generator and having to remove certain possibilities from occurring because of, erm, accidental wisdom found in some of its offerings. *cringe*)

The part that really worries me is that if/when it does happen and someone gets a totally randomized epithet in their output, I'll be ashamed and mortified but there'll be one little tiny voice in my head saying "Wow, that was neat!"

True story -- about one year ago...today, I think, I was in New Brunswick, making sure I was on the right road, asked a passerby for just a yes/no type of question, and he demurred, saying he didn't speak English, and so I'm okay with that, we keep driving and I mutter something like "I wish I knew someone who spoke French" and I almost have to pull over because it hits with that realization that I speak French, but...badly and apparently only occasionally....

Heh!

I think we all have days like that. When we wish there was someone around who had the knowledge to take care of a situation and then realize that we are that person. It's even more embarrassing when someone else reminds you that you are that person.

... Two years in a row I dress up as somebody from TNG

I like the show, but not that much.

[And I went back to check because my memory told me I was Worf last year too. Was Riker last year apparently]

I'm just glad the random generator seeding is at least half-way working finally. The results were getting a bit too...predictable.

Sweet, Josephine Baker! I would totally do that in real life. Last year I was a Freudian slip, which was awesomely easy to do.

I always liked the Freudian slip idea -- it got a bit tainted when Meg Ryan's character did it in D.O.A., but I try not to blame the idea.

It looks like the URL to bot-scrape IJ friends -- which should be http://www.insanejournal.com/misc/fdata.bml?user=sigma7 -- isn't working. I have no idea why or why not.

dressed as a bean

That is actually true, when I was 5. Well, jelly beans. It was a nickname, so my mom went with it.
