Duncan’s Sad Man-Titties Need You

I bet you all have your curiosity about Candy and me. Perhaps we spend our days reading romances, eating bonbons and snarking away at the man titty in our festively pink office that matches our festively pink website. Perhaps…or perhaps not.

Either way, to announce our final Smart Bitch Writing Contest of the year, I’ll give you a glimpse into how Candy and I come up with pretty much most of our content.

Sarah: Duncan Larksthrush needs a heroine, and a plot.

Candy: He needs a more manly name than Larksthrush, though. Rockthrust would be better. And one more thing: That parody was near-perfect except for the mention of Harlequin/Silhouette at the end. I wish people didn’t automatically assume all romances are Harlequins. Leisure, Zebra, Avon and Berkley would’ve been a much more accurate. God, I’m a nitpicky bitch.

Sarah: Maybe he’s Duncan Larksthrush, Duke of Rockthrush. Anyway, how can we best ask the Bitchery to help Duncan out?

Candy: How about a Big Misunderstanding scene? Like the big reveal. Person to come up with the most contrived, convoluted Big Mis wins.

Sarah: OH YES OH YES OH YES, she cried.

And thus a Smart Bitch Contest is born.

The Rules

In under 150 words, compose a the big reveal to a really honking Big Misunderstanding between Duncan and his fine heroine. Send it to Sarah and Candy by Tuesday, December 19.

We’ll post the entries, y’all will vote, hilarity will ensue.

Winners will receive the Smart Bitch Title, unless one is already a peeress, in which case we’ll promote you for acts of written valor, and a gift certificate to Amazon.com for $25.00US.

Duncan’s happiness? It all depends on you.

Sarah: Hey, Candy, pass the bonbons.

    It seems my terminal ingrown pedantry is causing me point out the Big Mis between Sarah and Candy here:

    Duke of Rock*thrust* (Candy) GOOD!
    Duke of Rock*thrush* (Sarah) NOT GOOD! SO NOT GOOD AND VERY FUNGAL! OW! OW! OW!

    Sorry I couldn’t resist. It’s a sickness. You may now resume your normal bitchery.

    I’m so amused by my typo (rockthrush! ow!) that I’m going to leave it and not edit it out. Hee.

    I said the same thing about the Harlequin reference to my husband… he didn’t get the distinction. Duh, people!
