        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
       filtered text to stdout.

       b1ff   The B1FF filter

              Cockney English

       chef   convert English on stdin to Mock Swedish on stdout

       eleet  K3wl hacker slang

       fanboy Speak like a fanboy. Filters out extraneous words and focuses on
              the words fans use. By default, it will  speak  like  a  fan  of
              git/Linus/linux  development. To change this, pass as parameters
              the words that the fanboy typically  uses.  Alternatively,  pass
              the  name  of  a  topic  that  typically  has  fanboys  to use a
              predefined word list.

       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

              Fake scottish (dwarven) accent filter, inspired by the character
              "Durkon" from Order of the Stick.

              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.

       Other filters:

       pig    From the bsdgames package, pig converts text to pig latin.

       dog --oog
              From the dog  package,  dog  can  also  function  as  a  filter,
              converting text to OOG-speak.
