A woman has created a 'Fifty Shades Text Generator' to prove her point that a computer could have written the "basic" book.

Lisa Wray "wanted to prove that Fifty Shades was so basic, a computer could have written it... so she did".

The page is powered by the 'Dada Generator', which "is a system for generating random text from grammars".

When the user goes to the website, it randomly generates a sample of text that could have come directly from the pages of the book.

The website was submitted to Reddit by user Inri137 and made it's way to the front page of Reddit, having received over 2,000 upvotes.
