Copyright free text for Greeking?

I have to retouch some pix of clothes models who are posed holding newspapers. The newspapers are clearly visible and much of the printed articles are a bit 'heavy' within the context of advertising photography. Blurring the text and Greeking are not options so I need to make up a fake page using proper text but of a totally bland and anonymous content. Any ideas where I can download wodges of such text? Many thanks for any leads.

I looked at that, thanks Doug but I'm not sure the UK is included in the exemptions. Just the sort of thing I'm after though.

The program is called PyProse and there's a Mac and a Widows version. It will generate random text that conforms to correct grammar and syntex rules. Occasionally it even makes sense. Sample:

Liquid can reserve her. His passenger between the refrigerator and every anode (a sound into vanity despite the coast) was telling you; and cannot the realtor lawyer succeed? How had so faithful a conspiracy surrendered? Whom have we assembled? Why would some lip split? Has the expected bean guessed? Fire unfortunately fits. Though you wait, where are masses forming? So idle a date was the jet, and to fail was vision. He swerved. Your mess is writing. To crash was removing me. A farmer orbits someone. What is an action noticing? His archive (the verandah) is so impossible a lawyer. Since an insisting scholar must step on so linely a particle, the forming bone added the deck of attention. The vortices of art hit her.

It'll crank this stuff out all night long. It's free, so don't expect Hemingway.
