Bad Writing Contest Winners!

Posted on: Dec 11, 2012

Thanks to all who entered our English Dep’t contest.  We’ve finally decided who has won.  This was a close one, but we had to choose a winner in the end.  So here are the results:

Winner: She immediately caught his eye, and not only because her skirt was shorter than Kim Kardashian's marriage or because her tanned legs were longer than Lindsay Lohan's rap sheet. (Camille Arends)

Runner-up: It was a not-so-bright and relatively damp night and our hero, also not-so-bright and relatively damp, had found a puddle in his boot. (Amanda Pelz)

Honorable mentions:

Well, Douglas thought, perhaps mashed potatoes hadn’t been the wisest choice after all. (Holly Craven)

It was a fiery cold evening and I remember all the events of the low stakes Go Fish tournament like the back of my dead dog's paw. (Tony Wong)

They were in love; they loved one another with a passion that swelled up like the sexual dimorphism of the Great Frigate-bird of the Galapagos Islands, but, alas, it could not be–and that is the reason–and the only reason–that she was still at the office at 8:00 on a Friday night. (Courtney Davies)


Thanks again to all our participants – we had a good time reading your sentences.  We’ll be doing another contest next year (in fall) hopefully.
