"Theirs was a New York love ..." - Bulwer-Lytton Fiction Contest 2008 Results

I have loved the Bulwer-Lytton Fiction Contest for years and the 2008 winners have been announced -this the overall winner:
Theirs was a New York love, a checkered taxi ride burning rubber, and like the city their passion was open 24/7, steam rising from their bodies like slick streets exhaling warm, moist, white breath through manhole covers stamped "Forged by DeLaney Bros., Piscataway, N.J."

The winner of the SciFi section made me snort as well:
Timothy Hanson, Commander of the 43rd Space Regiment in the 52nd Battalion on board the USAOPAC (United Space Alliance Of Planets Attack Carrier) and second in command to Admiral L. R. Morris of the USAOP Space Command, awoke early for breakfast.
