Can I use ozh random words in custom fields?

I had this idea to use Ozh' random words. I use this cool plugin throughout my sites to give them a fresh look for recurring visitors, for example, on the Know Thyself page, the quote that shows up on the 2nd paragraph is randomized with this cool plugin.

What if I want to use it to generate random words but place the code in the custom fields? Would I use the shorthand notation or the php notation? Would it work?
