The Worst Sentence Awards

Every year the folks at the Bulwer-Lytton Fiction Contest celebrate their love for bad prose by running "a whimsical literary competition that challenges entrants to compose the opening sentence to the worst of all possible novels." They've just announced this year's champion sentences and they're well worth a read. The contest accepts entries year-round, so if you think you've got what it takes to write the worst sentence of 2008, feel free to take your shot.
