Our assignment was " Appropriating text from the network. Devise and implement (in Python) a procedure to cut up and creatively re-arrange text. At least one of your texts should come from a network-based source (e.g., Wordnik, the New York Times API, etc.)."

I made the "New York Times Worst Sellers List"

The program takes the current NYTime best seller list for Combined Print and Ebook Fiction (I think that's the main one nowadays) and swaps the nouns in each titles for random nouns from the Corpora Project's noun list. Fun!
