Simply as an exercise in generating english-like text.

Try copying the text into Text Edit and having it read it via text-to-speech, I found it quite amusing to notice after a while the brain begins to think it can understand this gibberish. You'll think you hear words you know, but then listen closer and realize it's nonsense.

Try reading the text aloud as well, now that's a brain workout.

Just a brief excursion into psychology really.

I'm sorry to spoil the fun, but this doesn't look like English at all. If you want to generate English looking/sounding text, you should take characteristics at different levels into account. E.g., not all characters are equally likely, not all pairs of letters are equally likely, not all syllables can start or end a word, etc.

If you want to do better, you should take a look into statistical natural language processing to see what sources you can use to make it look better...
