Eye Of Argon
Widely considered the worst piece of science fiction ever written, Eye of Argon has been a popular read at Sci-Fi conventions for years, and is a VancouFur tradition too!

It's full of spelling mistakes, run-on sentences, bad grammer, and terrible punctuation. And we're going to read it. Out loud. See how far you can get without falling down laughing!
