If you’re on Twitter you know how this works. The “#” indicates a theme that people quote if they want to participate in the discussion.

In this case a literary agent, going by the username of @SlushPileHell started a contest. To enter the contest, you tweet a title using the #badkiddybooks tag. To vote, you re-tweet someone’s entry.

I went there, thinking of entering, but the ones that I read there were just too good and instead I spent my time reading, laughing, and voting. I don’t even know what the prize was.

I asked SlushPileHell if it was okay with him if I posted my own list of favs, so here they are:

  • gr3b0: “‘Do Babies Bounce?’ and other science experiments for
    older siblings
  • weirdlucy: Hitchhiking, a Guide for Girls Daddy Never Loved
  • GeneDoucette: Rachel Has Seven Mommies: A Childrens Guide to
    the Book of Mormon
  • LisaLOwens: “Santa Is Watching” and Other Lies Your Parents
    Told You

And my personal (twisted) fav:

As of right now, I don’t know if the winner has been chosen or indicated, but I think all the readers were winners!

    1. I saw a lot of yours and liked them too. I could have picked up the retweet, but I thought that I was careful not to catch the retweeter rather than the tweeter …

      And the Seven Mommies one was in my personal top five too.
