Facebook today is full of people posting sentences from what-would-i-say which generates new you-ish sentences from your Facebook posting history. Because people don't post that many statuses, it doesn't have too much to work with and has to use a small unigram/bigram model. I like some of the ones it gets for me, but a bigger corpus should help.

That's kind of a lot.
