This is complete genius:

Some folks at MIT have whipped up a bit of code and a database of computer science topics, phrases, and graphs, and developed a quick paper generator. The paper will make no sense at all, of course, but it is quick. And what they’ve found is that making no sense isn’t as much of a handicap as you might think when it comes to some conferences and some journals.

The database, which focuses on computing science literature, called Scigen, gave me a really nice article entitled "Evaluating Spreadsheets and 802.11B Using FetisGrame".

The creators have successfully submitted these nonsense papers to conferences and journals. hah!
