UN sentence

Post by Wizard of Oz » Wed Dec 30, 2015 10:07 am

Recently became aware of the following,
But the year's worst sentence came from the United Nations, which published a single sentence running to 20 pages and 16,600 words as part of the Paris agreement on climate change. All in the interests of "facilitating clarity, transparency and understanding".
Can that really be a sentence? I would love to read it but...maybe not.

The above information was included in a report on an Aussie site called The Drum. It was contained in an article, The worst words, phrases and spin of 2015 by Neil James. Worth a look.

A number of other clangers including my favourite from a large department store that created Gifticians to work in their Giftorium over Christmas.

Who could forget FIFA vice-president Jack Warner's wonderful dire warning,
"Not even death will stop the avalanche that is coming. The die is cast. There can be no turning back. Let the chips fall where they fall."
What do you think of the others?
