But you know, some of the entries, while funny, show some good writing ability. Like this one by Mark Schweizer:
She'd been strangled with a rosary-not a run-of-the-mill rosary like you might get at a Catholic bookstore where Hail Marys are two for a quarter and indulgences are included on the back flap of the May issue of "Nuns and Roses" magazine, but a fancy heirloom rosary with pearls, rubies, and a solid gold cross, a rosary with attitude, the kind of rosary that said, "Get your Jehovah's Witness butt off my front porch."
: Ta da - Here it is, the winner of the 2007 Bulwer-Lytton bad fiction contest:
: 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.
: Jim Gleeson, Madison, WI
: Talk about parenthetical inserts.
: The winner is a 47-year-old media technician from Madison, Wisconsin who claims to be working on a self-help book for slackers, "Self-Improvement Through Total Inactivity."
