Bad English Contest - Winners
Those are the prizes, this was the contest, these were the entries and now its time for the winners.
Everyone sure as hell made it a tough job for me to choose the winners. At the risk of sounding like a Miss Universe aspirant - bloggers, you are all winners.
But getting on to the task at hand, the winners that I have chosen are
Shruthi - Hilarious stuff. I still can't get over "..to be exposing my English". Here's her price winning entry once again in its entirety.
"Thanking you lot many times for good opportunity to be exposing my English. When myself am in the duty in my the office and I write the mails, all the peoples laughs on myself for my English. I telled them my English good but they still laughing. Only good peoples like you understanding and giving price for us. Ones myself starting blog and rude peoples coming and doing flame in my blog. If there is problem, peoples should be telling correct words, know? In staid they are uttering bad words. I was very much sad, and I was very much feared also. But I know, all are not the bad peoples. Some peoples good, like your kind self. Please to give me price. As return, I will be rolling my blog on you."
Kaushik Gopalan - No, not because he tried thrice. But because this entry was prize-winning trash. Whacky comparisons, unadulerated bakwaas and B-grade at its best. Here it is again -
"It was a dark and stormy night and raw unbridled lust filled the air like agarbatti smoke. She was the typical Hollywood type, switching between marriage and divorce with a frequency that was the envy of the supercomputer industry. He was stuck in a bad marriage that offered as much happiness as a Weight watchers 1 1/2 point cereal bar. Their relationship was like one between an Egyptian plover and a crocodile, perfectly symbiotic. As they stepped towards each other with the measured steps of wresters who are ready for a bout, he realized that something was not right. That the situation was not as perfect as it had seemed when he was eyeing her heaving bosom like Vandana Luthra eyes an overweight person. He realized that he was incomplete, like Saqlain without his doosra. He realized that he had forgotten the Viagra."
Harish Suryanarayana - I cannot imagine Morphus as "so sofsticated and poise and panache", but yes, Neo did look lost in front of Morphus in the first part of the trilogy. Here's Harish's revew again -
"The Matrix - A Revew
This movie it be one of my favorite.It has action like my hero Dharmendhar who also fly and escape any bullet which come my way.They have very cool name like Neo , Morphus and Trinty. . Morphus has deep voice and also speak very good dialoges by himself.My favourite dialogue is him saying do you eat red pill or will swallow blue pill to Neo. Morphus is so sofsticated and poise and panache but Neo look like he dont know what happening . Sometime I feel like getting up and kicking his mud head into sense. The movie I dont understood but action good ,so I see movie many many time.Agent Smith who is secret agent like James Bond but have no cool number like 007.I highly recomends movie for action liking peoples because action be made in Amrica studio and is very good."
