Here's a great tool I discovered by way of Midnight Flights:

A Newspaper Snippet Generator.

Just fill in the fields with some words and letters. Stretch your brain a bit to come up with some interesting text.

And voila:
I made this!

You could either play with this for hours coming up with weird newspaper stories for no particular reason, or for role playing gamers who play in contemporary or near-contemporary settings (d20 Modern / various GURPS / Call of Cthulhu / World of Darkness, among others)... you now have a tool to create awesome, authentic-looking images of newspapers as visual game aid.

That’s actually the “Daily Bunghole”… and a sentient toilet is exactly that: A toilet with basic consciousness.
