Removing from an Array

Really simple question.

Let’s say I wanted to randomly remove an item from an array in a for loop.

Basically, it would go something like;

thearray = [“lol”, “dude”, “ROFL”, “lame”, “excellent”]
for (i=0; i<4; i++) {
randomness = random(thearray.length())
thearray.remove [randomness]

Obviously that last line was made up, that’s where the code goes for the item-removal.

Thanks a lot guys,
