The Stuffed Owl

image
I'm reading a Mark Twain book currently, Following the Equator. In it, he mentions a notoriously bad poet, Julia Moore, a name I had not thought of in ages. Moore's fabled lack of talent produced scads of bad poetry. You can read about her career here.

Google has digitized at least one of her books, which you can read here. Be prepared to encounter such excruciating verse as this sample to the right.




Moore is included in The Stuffed Owl, a volume of the world's worst poetry. Wouldn't that make a swell Xmas gift for the literary type in your life?

Get Down Goblin

And now, in response to MohawkWarrior's comment: "Sometimes it seems less and less like WU and more like 'music to irritate people by.'" And thanks to the keen eye of Kingmonkey, we have an "extra" video for the day.
