For those of you who have never heard of Edward George Bulwer-Lytton He wrote the famous lines in 1830 (copyright expired)


"It was a dark and stormy night; the rain fell in torrents--except at occasional intervals, when it was checked by a violent gust of wind which swept up the streets (for it is in London that our scene lies), rattling along the housetops, and fiercely agitating the scanty flame of the lamps that struggled against the darkness."


Now there is an annual contest to find out just who can write lines as terrible as that. The winners for 2006 were announced a few days ago. Here are the winners:

Okay, this is not fair. I don't have time for this and I'm addicted and laughing my ass off all at the same time.

I have to fix my Quicken dammit!

I have lifted this one especially for our very own poo-flinging monkey-man:


Winner: Romance

Despite the vast differences it their ages, ethnicity, and religious upbringing, the sexual chemistry between Roberto and Heather was the most amazing he had ever experienced; and for the entirety of the Labor Day weekend they had sex like monkeys on espresso, not those monkeys in the zoo that fling their feces at you, but more like the monkeys in the wild that have those giant red butts, and access to an espresso machine.

I think Lord Lytton was a brilliant writer !


He wrote a great philosophical masterpiece, Zanoni: A Rosicrucian Tale !

and the world's first science fiction novel, Vril, The Power of the Coming Race !

One of my favorites was a dishonorable mention from last year that went like this:


He knew that he would have to start over with a fresh beginning now that he was away from that crazy cult. Still, 30 pieces of silver wasn't bad for one days work.


Thats not an exact quote though.

This contest does have some of the funniest writing going today. I look forward to it every year.

The man had to have done something right. A century after he died he's still being discussed. I guess bad publicity really is better than no publicity at all
