In honor of bad prose

The 2008 Bulwer-Lytton awards are up. A mixed bag, as per usual, but there are some laugh-out-loud gems, also as per usual -- the Vile Puns winner, for one (and there are a lot of puns in this batch), and the "honorees" in the Romance category.

Also, because it's been awhile I think, I want to point you all to an homage/parody: the Little Lytton, which is the same thing, but shorter -- there's a 25-word limit. I could do without quite as much commentary from the judge, but it's still pretty fun. The 2008 winners are here.
