Surely this is in the wrong place...

From this year's Bulwer-Lytton award results comes the following snippet:
Inside his cardboard box, Greg heated a dented can of Spaghetti-O's over a small fire made from discarded newspapers, then cracked open his last can of shoplifted generic beer to celebrate the 10th anniversary of his embarkation on a career as a freelance writer.
Filed among the "Miscellaneous Dishonourable Mentions", I'm sure it should have been disqualified, as the Bulwer-Lytton award is for execrable fiction - not-biography...

...2½ years into just such a career...
