And the winner is. . . .

Dave Zobel, an author and software developper from Manhattan Beach, California, wins the 2004 Bulwer-Lytton writing contest with this timely sentence:
She resolved to end the love affair with Ramon tonight . . . summarily, like Martha Stewart ripping the sand vein out of a shrimp's tail . . . though the term "love affair" now struck her as a ridiculous euphemism . . . not unlike "sand vein," which is after all an intestine, not a vein . . . and that tarry substance inside certainly isn't sand . . . and that brought her back to Ramon.


Full details are availabe at the Contest's official site.
