Random word generator
I was using the Daily Post Prompts.  They show entries through a pingback system on WordPress.  Mine weren’t showing up so I’ve changed a couple setting in my WordPress software.

This one lets you set how many words it generates with the default being 12.  I set it to one and got fog.
