Looking for a not-so-good paper - as example of bad scientific writing (Oct/29/2009 )

Dear all....

Our lab will be having a lab retreat early next month and each of the group was given a task/ assignment.
I am in the "Critical review" group and the group leader ask us to get a "bad example" of scientific paper.

It is easier to find a good paper, just go to high impact journal and everything is settled. But it is quite hard to find a BAD written paper (if the paper was that BAD, the reviewer must be sleeping to let paper pass the review)...

Anyone came across a BAD paper before?
Any suggestion?
