Not That Bad...

Calif. man makes bad writing judges cringe - Yahoo! News

An annual contest in San Jose for bad writing awarded the following passage the winner (or loser?):

"Detective Bart Lasiter was in his office studying the light from his one small window falling on his super burrito when the door swung open to reveal a woman whose body said you've had your last burrito for a while, whose face said angels did exist, and whose eyes said she could make you dig your own grave and lick the shovel clean," Guigli wrote."

Sure, it's a little over the top and convoluted at it's attempt at noir cynicism...but lose the burrito bit and the last part about licking the shovel clean and it's not too bad.

Oh well, I guess if I don't ever win awards for good writing, there are awards for bad writing to shoot for :)
