Description: generator of random sentences from grammar definitions
 PolyGen is a program for generating random sentences according to a grammar
 definition, that is following custom syntactical and lexical rules.
 .
 Formally, it is an interpreter of a language itself designed to define
 languages, where to interpret means executing a source program in real time
 and eventually outputting its result.
 .
 Here a source program is a grammar definition, the execution consists in the
 exploration of such grammar by selecting a random path and the result is the
 sentence built on the way.
 .
 Though PolyGen is quite a serious piece of software then, what else would be
 more noble for it than being used as a parody tool for linguistical habits,
 stereotypes and trends of this foolish era?
 .
 Principles of parody are focusing a ridiculous topic and eventually
 abstracting its rules and schemes (here in terms of a grammar definition) by
 which reproducing it through the variatio device.  And randomization is
 perfect at this purpose thanks to its purely asemantic behaviour =:)
