Bad Writing Awards

Bad Writing Awards

I just read a story on CNN about the winners of the annual bad writing awards. I'm cracking up. This is worth your time. I promise. Go read it. One example:

"Captain Burton stood at the bow of his massive sailing ship, his weathered face resembling improperly cured leather that wouldn't even be used to make a coat or something."

Thanks for the link, Steverino. Bulwer writings should never be missed.

Good grief! They want 'writers with a little talent, but no taste'. HELLO! That is so me. I could win that contest. Why didn't I find out about until now?

Now I'm going to have to wait until next year.

I dearly hope that someday my writing will progress from that kind of low-end suckage to the suckage of the truly god-awful.

That sounds like something I would write...or something.

Har, har, har.

my favorite verse:
"like grease on a Denny's grill in the morning rush, but only until eleven o'clock when they switch to the lunch menu".

poetry in motion. well, if you get motion sickness anyhow.

With so many people blogging and writing stuff like this every day, I can see this competition getting tougher to win.

Those are great!

Hey! Writing something that gloriously bad isn't easy, it isn't easy at all... I know.
