Have any of my fellow monks done anything using Algorithm::MarkovChain? I installed it off CPAN a couple weeks ago meaning to play with it, but I haven't gotten around to it just yet.
Once upon a time, I build a Markov Chainer-based object on a MOO and fed it huge passages from Umberto Eco's Foucault's Pendulum. The things it would spew back out were eerie. It almost seemed like it achieved sentience and bacame one of the Secret Masters of the World.
