Sort (or not) stdin using the bogo-sort algorithm

Sort files or its standard input using the bogo-sort algorithm described in the Jargon File <http//>.

A quote from the Jargon File ‘bogo-sort’ entry

 ...The archetypical perversely awful algorithm as opposed to
 _bubble sort_, which is merely the generic bad algorithm.
 _Bogo-sort_ is equivalent to repeatedly throwing a deck of cards
 in the air, picking them up at random, and then testing whether
 they are in order. It serves as a sort of canonical example of
 awfulness. Looking at a program and seeing a dumb algorithm, one
 might say "Oh, I see, this program uses _bogo-sort_." Esp.
 appropriate for algorithms with factorial or super-exponential
 running time in the average case and probabilistically infinite
 worst-case running time. Compare _bogus_, _brute force_,
