Scott Elliott has established a memorial fund in the name of his parents, murdered last week in Iraq. Hit the link for more details. The address to donate:

The Larry and Jean Elliott Memorial Fund
c/o The International Mission Board
P.O. Box 6767
Richmond, VA  23230

Make out any checks/cheques to "The International Mission Board" with "Larry and Jean Elliott Memorial Fund" or "Elliott Fund" prominent. All donations will support missionaries and their work. Reader Fidens has already pledged $50:

I will donate AU$50 to the charity of your choice as a prize for the most tortured, nauseating prose submitted by one of your readers (50 words, minimum). [Tim] will be the judge. We have a benchmark, now we just need the will, the stomach, and our eyeballs back in our sockets.

Post your mockworthy literary finds in comments.

I was going to look for mockworthy prose to post here. Then I realized that the Bosler benchmark is far to high a hurdle to even attempt.

So I drank a beer instead.

Thank you, Tim. I would like to mention that 100% of all donations made to this fund will be spent in direct support of international missionaries like my parents.
