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.
