All the World’s a Stage…

The Annual Bulwer-Lytton writing contest is based upon the much stolen beginning line by Snoopy, “It was a dark and stormy night…” The contest is run each year by the Department of English at San Jose State University. The award is given to the worst lead-in to a wretched story.

The Rashers of Bacon Street, hams every one, lived and breathed burlesque; or rather they did until that fateful night that their show was panned and they, consequently, canned and squealing for revenge, knew they had ceased to be vaudevillians and were about to become, instead, avowed villains. –Dan Braverman, Houston, TX
