THE WINNERS

My Rise To Power In The Seedy Underbelly Of The Internet by @Gonzo

So far there's little really good comedy writing on the blockchain. In fact it's perhaps one of the most niche creative writing subjects on Whaleshares. This made Gonzo's excellent piece refreshing. It's also legitimately funny in an anarchic Gonzo style (look up Hunter S. Thompson if you don't know what I mean). If you like warm writing full of funny observations, puns and crazyness I'd recommend taking a look, but I might not recommend @gonzo as a next door neighbour...

Intrauterine Adventure by @joseph1956

This was a stange piece in an international style of English but it held together well with a good progression and kept my interest until the end. Reminding me a little of John Fowles's Mantissa we are taken through the stages of a pregnancy by a worldly wise baby who comments on everything going on outside the womb. It's amusing and a little bit touching and I'd recommend taking a look at this writers highly original work.
