I enjoyed the anti-essay it offered something out of the ordinary. I liked how it gave the opportunity to do something not done before.
It was an assignment out of the norm. It was a great way to see what some classmates had on their minds.
I thought the anti-essay was just as you said: a way for us to escape the evils of MLA. We've been writing essay upon essay for years now, so to leave an English class feeling like I not only know how to write, but also how to think, was a great experience.
Totally loved the anti-essay even though I was dressed as a Turkey in it. English has always been boring to me and I have never really enjoyed it until now. I would not say I love it, but the anti-essay made me feel more close to it because it allowed me to express myself in a way that did not involve pen, paper, and all the downs of writing that I dilike.
There are too many classes that require a serious final project. When you're stuck in courses that have horrible finals and exams, it's nice to have an assignment to be silly.
I thought it was a great assignment as well :)! I think that it brought out peoples creativity in an open way to the public! I loved seeing everyone so into it, and smiling about the assignment. I agree with a few people above, it was neat to see what everyone has goin on in their mind!
