So bad it's good

The annual Bulwer-Lytton results were announced the other day. This is my favorite winner:

Winner: Children's Literature
"Joanne watched her fellow passengers -- a wizened man reading about alchemy; an oversized bearded man-child; a haunted, bespectacled young man with a scar; and a gaggle of private school children who chatted ceaselessly about Latin and flying around the hockey pitch and the two-faced teacher who they thought was a witch -- there was a story here, she decided."

--Tim Ellis, Haslemere, U.K.

That's not bad--it's way too funny to be bad.
