What’s the Good Word?

I don’t remember who turned me on to the Web site Wordle, but for somebody as interested as I am in graphic design, it provides tremendous enjoyment. As the site explains:

You can tweak your clouds with different fonts, layouts, and color schemes. The images you create with Wordle are yours to use however you like. You can print them out, or save them to the Wordle gallery to share with your friends.
This morning I applied the Wordle technology to Limbo’s front page, with the following result:
