    San Jose State has released the 2010 winners of the annual Bulwer-Lytton Fiction Contest.

    The award, named for English writer Edward Bulwer-Lytton, who wrote the classic line "It was a dark and stormy night..." celebrates some of the worst writing.


    Entertaining reading if you " just ain't right" as my wife put it after I read her a couple.

    This has to be my favorite though :

    Elaine was a big woman, and in her tiny Smart car, stakeouts were always hard for her, especially in the August sun where the humidity made her massive thighs, under her lightweight cotton dress, stick together like two walruses in heat.

    Runner-Up:

    The band of pre-humans departed the cave in search of solace from the omnipresent dangers found there knowing that it meant survival of their kind, though they probably didn't understand it intellectually since their brains were so small and undeveloped but fundamentally they understood that they didn't like big animals that ate them.

    Their relationship hit a bump in the road, not the low, graceful kind of bump, reminiscent of a child's choo choo train-themed roller coaster, rather the kind of tall, narrow speed-bump that, if a school bus ran over it, would cause even a fat kid to fly up and bang his head on the ceiling.
