I've seen it before... but I think that saying that "it doesn't matter what order" is too much. You can still read it by scrambling the letters randomly inside a word, but there's some tricks to making it so that the reading speed will be normal or close to it. Ascenders and descenders should stay in the same place or close, and the same for wide or narrow letters.

Now everyone together say "bouma".
