The last time I wrote about Quality Engineering, I mentioned that some of the reasons why people are not familiar with this term are, in no particular order: 'Quality' is usually something that is added as an after thought and doesn't really come into the picture, if ever, until the very end of the release process Nobody outside of a QA team really knows what they do.

My idea was to create a method that would: Return a "Lorem Ipsum" string if I passed no arguments: In [1]: from fauxfactory import FauxFactory In [2]: FauxFactory.generate_iplum() Out[2]: u'Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipisicing elit, sed do eiusmod tempor incididunt ut labore et dolore magna aliqua.
