this is what happens when two editors get drunk

Well, Andersen Prunty isn't really an editor....yet (he writes books). It's his editorial debut, I think. He seems to be describing himself as a "kind of editor" though. So I guess it his kind of an editor debut.

And I don't know if we were actually drunk when we came up with the idea. Maybe I was so drunk that I don't remember being drunk.

I tried to convince him to make the deadline my birthday since it's 27 days after his official deadline. He was against the idea for sensible reasons.

GUIDELINES

BRADLEY SANDS IS A DICK: The Anthology of Vitriol

BRADLEY SANDS IS A DICK strives to be the most ill-conceived, poorly planned e-anthology out there. Please send your stories to me, Andersen Prunty, at andersenprunty@yahoo.com. Include “Bradley Sands is a Dick” in the subject line. I will send you an email letting you know it has been received. I will kind of edit the anthology. Every story will be titled “Bradley Sands is a Dick.” I should come away from your submissions feeling that Bradley Sands is a dick. How you make me feel this way is entirely up to you. Submissions should be around 1000 words and under. They should be bizarro, weird, funny, angry, or a combination. You are welcome to submit them to me whenever but I will not begin reading them until September 1, 2008. I will stop reading them December 1, 2008. In January 2009, the selected stories will appear in a free PDF e-anthology published by BUST DOWN THE DOOR AND EAT ALL THE CHICKENS and assistant edited by Bradley Sands. Readers will vote on the selected stories. The author of the winning story will be paid 100 American dollars and the much sought after title of Bradley Sands’ arch-nemesis.

Although this sounds really fun, I'll have to recuse myself.

Well, maybe I'll submit, but if I submit I'll be in it to win, and if I don't win the $100 - you're really a dick.

"...and the much sought after title of Bradley Sands’ arch-nemesis."

I'm going to get that title by upstaging him as much as possible. 30,000 people in multiple states saw my writing and some of my editing this month. Titular. Thieves Journal.

Bring it on. Again. All or nothing. In it to win it.

"So bring it on
Bring it on
Every neglected dream
Bring it on
Every little scheme
Bring it on
Every little fear
And I'll make them disappear"

So, who's the bigger dick?

Who has the bigger dick?

Largest ego?

You don't need a fucking prize, you've already got everything - don't you?

Even doctors to kiss your boo-boos better.

Someone who wasn't Eric Blair got offended by my comment, so deleted it.
