Terrible writing

Jenners over at Life with a Little One has come up with a game to entertain us all. This game is called Bad Writing and it sort of tickled my funny bone.

It shouldn’t be too hard to write badly – after all, I’ve had plenty of practice!

EXTRACT ONE:

After the analysis and validation phase of support strategies for customer satisfaction parameters, we maximized our team support assessment skills and focused on empowering our team competency abilities in order to utilize the paradigms of our validation strategies.

clang-cliche1EXTRACT TWO:

The cliché is a long lost art that these days seems to be a hit and miss affair, a hotchpotch, if you like – a kind of curate’s egg. Although when they are good they are excellent and when they are bad they are awful, it is still true to say that many hands make light work even if it can get a bit crowded in the kitchen with too many cooks with ants in their pants fighting over the broth and the wooden spoons. And even if you can’t stand the heat and should get out of the kitchen, I pose this question to you: Why close the stable door when the horse has bolted? It makes as much sense as saying it’s as easy as pie when everyone knows that it is the early bird that gets the worm. After all, there is no I in team, right?
