From: Harmony Button To: Abby McCarthy Subject: Writing that is Wrote with great Effort Date: September 13, 2004 You might remember last summer, when, unscrupled educator that I am, I passed along an assortment of amazingly awful things my students wrote. These aren't quite as good as the essay about making the horse noise, but hey, the one on Angelina Jolie is pretty priceless. Oh yeah: the assignment? Not to describe your favorite actress, I'll tell ya that much... "Anjelina Jolie is my idol because she joins in the programs which are helding for the poor people or the people who need help....She's like a member of UN, and I want to be also like her...Besides this, I like her acting also." "If I do not like the topic, all the essay goes bad. However, I can write really good when I want to write. Not only does writing allow me to express myself, through writing I can explore Ideas in which I am not familiar with.... I am also not that good at writing poems or writing in old English i.e. writing in Shakespeare's style...In my opinion, writing is the best way to communicate between people, and people's true mind can be described only through the writing that is wrote with a great effort." "In another incident, a monkey's anus was broken when it reached beyond its cage bars to get nuts from a visitor. In the wild, animals would not have allowed anything like this to happen." "God's announting shall surely shine in your soul." (this same student also spelled 'Lucifer' as 'Luziver') "Wall-Fart: The wonderful supermarket where a Turkish friend of mine tried to chase a girl around, while I was entertaining some people with wearing bras and mini-skirts." "Our room is a place where all lambs are not functional." "The only thing I remember is that my feet were frozing." "...and finally, my lamest plane ride concluded." That's all for tonight. There will be many more to come...
