Joints and Springs to make swimming words

I have a client request for an app that has "swimming words"...

Basically, the words swim around the screen (like fish, so the use of joints and springs I guess would work out here?) and the user can click and drag them around.

I have looked into the steering behaviors for wandering around the screen, but I'm really struggling with implementing different letters (a collection of transparent PNG files) into a fish like structure using this library.

Could anyone please help me out here? I would really really appreciate the help!
