Discover Wordle

It's fun, creative, inviting!
Wordle is a toy for generating “word clouds”
from text that you provide. The clouds give greater
prominence to words that appear more frequently
in the source text. You can tweak your clouds with different fonts, layouts, and color schemes. The images you create
with Wordle are yours to use.....print, save, or share with pals.

You know, try this.....
