Odd

Right now I'm having amnesia and deja vu at the same time. Is it weird in here, or is it just me? Then I found out there's such a thing as Best Bad Writing Competition started in the early 1980's. Here are the funniest worst entries.

It was a dark and stormy night -actually not all that dark, but more dusky or maybe cloudy, and to say "stormy" may be overstating things a bit, although the sidewalks were still wettish and smelled of ozone, and, truth be told, characterizing the time as night is a stretch as it was more in the late, late afternoon because I think Oprah was still on.

-Gregory Snider, MD, Lexington, KY, 2004 runner-up

On reflection, Angela perceived that her relationship with Tom had always been rocky, not quite a roller coaster ride but more like when the toilet paper roll gets a little squashed so it hangs crocked and every time you pull some off you can hear the rest going bumpity-bumpity in its holder until you go nuts and push it back into shape, a degree of annoyance that Angela had now almost attained.

-Rephah Berg, Oakland, CA, 2002 winner

The last one is hilarious! I think Uncle John's Wonderful World of Odd book drives me insane. And believe it or not 2010 is beginning to get on my last nerve. Sorry I feel normy lately. Will blog something exciting soon.
