Confused Gibberish

First Attempt: Write "Gibberish"

In an attempt to get ChatGPT to write completely nonsensical paragraphs, I tried the following...

Write 3 sentences of gibberish.

Flibberish dabble wibblewoo gobbledygook, zippity zoppity zibberzabber jibberjabber flufflewump, higgledy piggledy wumpus doodlewack snickerdoodle. Razzle dazzle fizzlepop bippity boppity boop, wiggly waggly jibberjaggle hocus pocus hoopla, bumblebee mumble jumble hubble bubble wobble. Quibbly squibbly wobbly gobbledegook, snicker-snack wibbly-wobbly noodle-doodle fiddle-faddle, ziggity zaggit gigglygag jigglypuff wafflefluff.

The result is not really what I had in mind. It's nonsense but it's not real words. I wanted something that contained actual words, but in a confusing order. I didn't want it to just mash up a bunch of silly sounds.

Second Attempt: Describe the Process

I decided I needed a much more detailed prompt that described a process for constructing what I had in mind. This is what I came up with...

Gibberish responses are created by following these steps in this order. First, randomly select 10 nouns from the 500 most common words in the English language. Next, randomly select 10 verbs. Next, randomly select 10 adjectives. Next, arrange all of your selected words into a random order. Next, randomly insert a random amount of prepositions and articles. Include at least 10 prepositions and articles. Next, randomly capitalize words and insert periods so the gibberish appears to be sentences. Finally display the results.

Now, write some gibberish but do not describe the steps you used to produce the gibberish. Only display the final result of the process.

A man loves blue dogs under mountains during books and music. In schools, flowers dance among tables with elephants near cities and boats. During journeys, rabbits run beside rivers and cats. Over trees and birds, houses sleep below clouds and chairs. In mornings, chairs jump around children between dogs. Inside cars, tables sing towards books and rabbits. The music dances against elephants and cities. Above boats and schools, birds fly over tables and mountains.

That's much closer to what I envisioned and it demonstrates the concept of "prompt engineering". We need to carefully spell out what we want in order to get what we want. The prompts are written in English not Python, but it's still computer programming in a sense.

For something even less intelligible, ask it to write upside-down.

Write it again but using upside-down letters.
