All bad poetry springs from genuine feeling.
- Oscar Wilde
Ku and I hope you all enjoyed our Bad Poetry Day Contest and blog hop. We sure did!
Though you may believe your poems were truly terrible, Ku and I want you to know that you are all very talented. We enjoyed reading your poems about pooping, farting, digging, eating, flapping your wings, writing a poem, waiting for your car to be fixed...and I think there was even a poem about, of all things, pretzels!
But now the Contest is closed...Ku and I re-read your poems and compared our notes on whose poems were actually the WORST. Believe it or not, we agreed on every category right from the start of judging and now we are delighted to announce the winners.
Winning isn't everything, but it beats anything in second place.
- William C. Bryant

(Even if you think I have your address already, won't you kindly send it again?)
Oh wait! We have two Honorable Mentions - the "I'm not a Poet...and I know it" Award!
Our first Honorable Mention goes to Ranger Scottie because though he may not have wrote the WORST poem, he graciously gave Ku and I the idea to host a Bad Poetry Contest in the first place! THANK YOU, RANGER!
Our other Honorable Mention goes to Emma from My GBGV Life because we think she had the CUTEST photo accompanying her poem - a photo of herself trying to learn how to write some really bad poetry!
Of course, Ku and I believe you all deserve an Honorable Mention for trying so hard to write your poems and for joining in the fun of the Contest and blog hop. So, if you would like to take the Honorable Mention "I'm not a Poet...and I know it" badge for your blog, go for it!
Now everybody start practicing for next year!
