Drumroll, please… Scribbles and Ink have selected their favourite poems from the Bad Poetry Day Competition! These verses were silly, they were icky, they were crazy… they were so Bin-tastically bad they really made us cringe! Well done! Read on…if you dare.
The authors of these pungent poems will each receive a nice, shiny, blingin’ Scribbles Trophy. Congratulations! (We thought you’d like that better than free tickets to Ink’s next mystery play, The Secret of the Smelly Socks. You’d have to pay us to sit through it!)

Tink, Clott and their celebrity buddies Dick and Dom had a Bin-tastic time at LeapPad Ultra launch day at Hamleys! They met a great bunch of weevily fans and played with the LeapPad Ultra!
The highlight of the day was hanging out with misspu the winner of the LeapFrog Ultra Competition!

Eco-friendly tip: If you print out your puzzle, re-use an A4 sheet that already has something on one side. Using both sides of the paper when you can helps to save trees! You can also re-use the other side for drawing or painting!

Did you know that this Sunday, August 18th, is Bad Poetry Day? Yup, it’s the one day of the year when Ink’s cringe-inducing verse is truly appreciated. Everyone knows that Ink’s poems seriously stink (can you believe he fancies himself the next Shakespeare?) but we think YOU could do even better…er, worse!
Could you write a poem as terrible as Ink’s? Write about a super silly subject, pen some awful rhymes or pack your verses with groan-worthy puns – it’s up to you to make sure your poem really pongs!
Scribbles and Ink will be judging the Bin’s worst poems, and you could be in with a chance to win a Scribbles trophy. The winning poems will be published next week right here on the What’s New Blog!
1. Leave a comment here this weekend with your worst poem!
2. Please keep it nice and short – it’s gonna be awful, after all!
3. Don’t forget to include your correct Bin Weevils username.
Get those feather quills out… Good luck!
