The 2007 Bulwer Lytton awards are out. Here's the winning entry from Jim Gleeson
Gerald began--but was interrupted by a piercing whistle which cost him ten percent of his hearing permanently, as it did everyone else in a ten-mile radius of the eruption, not that it mattered much because for them "permanently" meant the next ten minutes or so until buried by searing lava or suffocated by choking ash--to pee.
This reminds yet again of the Bad English Contest held here. At that time I had no idea that there was a formal contest like the BW. Yet, the BEC was huge fun. I still think that mangling the English language with hyperbole, exaggeration, mixed metaphors and such like requires some effort and can be fun.
Loads of fun. Check out the complete list of BW winners here.
