The winners of the official 2010 Bulwer-Lytton prize for bad fiction are out.

There are some real gems this year. I can't pick a favorite, but this is one of the ones I like:

"The dark, drafty old house was lopsided and decrepit, leaning in on itself, the way an aging possum carrying a very heavy, overcooked drumstick in his mouth might list to one side if he were also favoring a torn Achilles tendon, assuming possums have them."
