Quote Unquote

Note: The quotes below are all made up, most of them within the few minutes preceding the deadline for the Lit-Soc Creative Writing event. For some reason, it was decided by most of the hostel junta that we will go with Barbie dolls as the theme of our entry (keeping in mind their 50th anniversary), with the primary purpose of poking fun at them.

Having picked a theme that I have no knowledge of, everybody else went off to sleep, leaving me with four A4 sheets to fill in four hours. Somehow we met the deadline, with six of the seven articles having been put together at the last minute. Needless to mention, we did not score any points. It was also the very first time in my life that I disliked having to write, and is something I never want to do again.

However, I quite enjoyed making up these quotes. Some of them were funny, even. I doubt if the judges got the joke, though.

    @all
    thanks! btw, Mr. JEE- 1035 is a person. In case you are reading this Samadhi, it wasn’t my idea to make specific reference to you in the creative writing entry. Honest.

    @mariya
    seriously? even i used would occasionally pit my cousin’s barbie versus ken in no-holds-barred bare knuckle boxing matches.

    @smita
    rumors do travel fast. no band has confirmed, as far as i know. it should be certain by nov-dec.

    @silverstreak
