Now THIS is a contest I can get behind!

First of all, this is a contest that appeals to my heart cause the topic is "fuck off and die letters" which I both send and receive on a regular basis.

Second, it's open to anyone with an email account and I don't have to read the entries or judge the work.

Third, it's funny.

Here's the link.


I have also entered. We'll see how well Miss Snark deals with being on the other side of the crapometer!!!!!

Damn. Here I thought you'd be plugging my Debut a Debut contest.

That's a good one, though. It brings to mind the notecards from Ella Studio -- maybe the owner would throw in a prize if asked nicely. She's very cool.

I'd lose in a contest like this. I prefer the "wrong way".

There was a time it seemed this is what I did for a living. I might have to go through files and pull out one of my more classic letters!

I'm in. I may not win, but I had a kick ass time writing the letter.

Thanks for the heads up on this, Miss Snark. I've entered the competition.

Well, I'll risk another 'this is a mess' ;)

Thanks for the link.

Dear dog in heaven, you would not BELIEVE how my hit count spiked. Once more (as always) Miss Snark uber-rocks!

I'm totally in. I didn't have to root around my "sent" archives for very long to find several fine examples of genteel FOAD letters. I chose one I originally sent to an old school acquaintance who became a doctor. With any luck, he'll see it again.

"The author has never written a finer book; this showcases the writer at the peak of his talents. One would have to look far and wide to find its equal, and there are few, indeed, who would dare to assay the depths the prose here. To read “XX” is to be profoundly affected by the author’s vision. It is an experience without parallel, and a new hallmark in its genre...."

I hope I never get a review like this.
