Hilariously Bad FR Writing: "Attack Of The Moonbats"
Edited on Mon Oct-09-06 06:58 PM by K8-EEE
Does anybody know about that contest where they try to do the bad Hemmingway. Well it's a dark and stormy night (actually, "evaporating rain") in this gem, yikes. Very LOL!

couldn't get through the first line..

"Evaporating rain spattered the hot Tucson asphalt"
We should seriously consider an annual writing prize for these folks. I'll pitch in for a plastic trophy.

Somewhere out there, in a dark and stormy mind......

3. wow. that's some bad writing...
"It was Blake Rebling, President of the Arizona College Republicans. Apparently courage is a requirement for joining such an organization"

apparently, he lacks the extra bit of courage to actually go fight for the war he so strongly advocates.

Wow, what a fascist. . .and the UACR are a bunch of sycophants. They love the war, so long as they don't go.
