fans of bad fiction unite!

K showed me the Bulwer-Lytton contest and its cousin - the Little Lytton contest a while ago. These two contests are for people attempting the worst possible sentence to begin a novel. Great fun in itself, but then the Bulwer-Lytton people got the idea to allow reader submissions of sentences that have actually been published. The "Sticks and Stones" page, as they call it, contains some sentences that look suspiciously like they should have won one of these contests.

#78 made me laugh till I was shaking. Please, do yourself a favor and read it.
