Have you benchmarked that to see if it's faster?

No, I used logic. (which is why I said it could be faster.) A shuffling algorithm takes the same time to shuffle on each pass. It's really just randomizing the array indexes. The idiom you were using varies each time through. The less words left, the longer it will take to produce an unchosen word. My thought was, perhaps you were unaware of shuffling or its application here.
