Wow, there are some creative cursers out there, and I applaud each and every one of you. Seriously, thanks to everyone who entered and shared their words with the world. I had a hard time picking the winner, and even had my husband read the entries. He laughed at the sames ones I did, but this doesn't mean the judging was objective--it just means we have the same weird sense of humor. Anyway, here are the results:
1st Runner Up: Wild Ape for "Petarded." I'm not sure why I loved this word so much. It could have been the Shakespearean influence which reminded me of terms like "thou artless elf-skinned horn-beast," or the close proximity to the politically incorrect term for doing something stupid. Either way, this word is great.
NOTE: In the event that the winner is either unable or unwilling to uphold the expectations of winning (or if nude pictures of the winner are discovered in Playboy), the 1st Runner Up will win the prize.
GRAND-PRIZE WINNER: Feaky Snucker wins for "Cork Sucking Ice Hole." The R-rated version of this entry also had me (and my hubby) laughing, and I'm still trying to find a way to work it into a conversation (e.g. that guy in accounting is a total f*ck-shovel). Congrats, Feaky Snucker, you win the YA book of your choice!
We'll do another contest soon, so let me know if you have any creative contest ideas! I'll be back with the regular Wednesday Query Critique next week. :)
