Source: Edmonton Journal - Wednesday, April 16, 2014 - Arts and Life: only used the first two paragraphs of all the articles.

AC/DC to Retire? - main article for replacing nouns, verbs and adjectives.

Downie, Sadies rise with Conquering Sun - used for noun replacements.

Pop star's dad is Unusually Thicke - used for verb replacements.

Music, camping and muddy motorsports - used for adjective replacements.

The chimera of Homeric legend – lion’s head, goat’s body,
treacherous serpent’s tail – has a less forbidding Oulipian
counterpart. It is engendered as follows. Having chosen a
newspaper article or other text for treatment, remove its nouns,
verbs and adjectives. Replace the nouns with those taken in order
from a different work, the verbs with those from a second work,
the adjectives with those from a third.
