Bulwer-Lytton Awards 2007

The results for the most abominable examples of English-language prose are in for this year, and can be (for those inclined to have their forebrains hurt as much as mine did after reading) found here. Have fun, but beware--consume responsibly, this is some horrendous stuff!

UPDATE: While there, don't forget to check out the samples from actual fiction rather than made-up first sentences, here. Provided you still have some braincells left, that is. And if you do try the Dark and Stormy Night cocktail recipe, be a good sport and let me know how you liked it.

This is marvelous. I'm going to have to sit down with this quietly after I knock off work tonight - what a great way to decompress :-)

Oh yeah. That is one great sentence as a deterrent. I am contemplating submitting something next year...:-)
