Random Word Replacement Keeps Music Lovers Interested

“Music is boring!” This was the conclusion that Gene Walton came to after a summer spent as a lifeguard. Instead of giving up and spending the rest of his free time studying geometry, Walton decided to take action: he invented the Waltonizer, a small device that randomly replaces words in music of any genre. His first successful prototype has been in use at the swimming pool where he guards, but he hopes that his Kickstarter™ campaign will enable him to mass produce the device and market it commercially.

So if you ever start feeling bored by music, look for a Waltonizer, and, in the words of the song, “Don’t eat frogs, while the sand is wailing: bugga-bugga-bugga!”
