I thought that some of you might find this amusing:

San Jose State's annual Bulwer-Lytton Fiction awards for purposefully

bad writing (named for Edward Bulwer-Lytton, the 19th century author

who coined the opening phrase "It was a dark and stormy night...")

were handed out yesterday, and the grand prize went to Dan McKay of

Fargo, North Dakota for the following passage:

As he stared at her ample bosom, he daydreamed of the dual

Stromberg carburetors in his vintage Triumph Spitfire, highly functional

yet pleasingly formed, perched prominently on top of the intake

manifold, aching for experienced hands, the small knurled caps of the

oil dampeners begging to be inspected and adjusted as described in

chapter seven of the shop manual.

WELL ENDOWED BRITISH ACTRESS OF THE TIME .

He should have slipped "offered it into position" in there. I mean come one, is it really that difficult?
