That could have been it. It's certainly short enough to re-type from
scratch if need be.

I wish I had the time to take 'travesty' to the next level: instead of
concantenating words together, it would concantenate audio files of
someone speaking these words. Perhaps the biggest part of the job,
moreso than the programming task, would be to generate a bazillion
small audio files, each of a single spoken word.

Using a single large audio file, and inflicting voice recognition on
the task, would be immensely swank, but also a gigantic amount of
work. Even thinking about it makes my head hurt.

As a real-time application, it could be an automatic, babbling,
meaningless radio announcer. Hmmm.......
