Great bad prose–the Bulwer-Lytton winners for 2012

It’s easy to write badly but hard to write this deliberately awful and hilarious stuff that wins the Bulwer-Lytton contest. If you been asleep and don’t know what this is, here’s the link to the website page with this year’s winners, recently announced:

My favorite this year–the one that made me laugh out loud–is the runner-up for Purple Prose: “Corinne considered the colors (palest green, gray and lavender) and texture (downy as the finest velvet) and wondered, “How long have these cold cuts been in my refrigerator?” submitted by Linda Boatright of Omaha NE.

Thanks go to my Israeli writer friend Pnina Moed Kass who sent me the link.
