A contest for copy artists!
The Morning News site wonders not “why does anyone plagiarize,” but “why aren’t more people better at plagiarizing?” (I plagiarized that from their lead today.)
And so they are launching a contest to see if there is a “writer” out there who can create a coherent and original piece of fiction completely made from the works of others.
The Rules of TMN “Sloppy Seconds With Opal Mehta” Contest:
—You are limited to 750 of somebody else’s words; none of those words may be your own.

Peter Mehlman, former Seinfeld scribe, apologizes on Huffpo for plagiarizing a certain Russian novel. High-larious.
