Fiction so Bad It's Good
|I just came across the Bulwer-Lytton Fiction Contest, and if you want a good laugh you should really check it out. The goal of the contest: write a single sentence of awful prose. Here's last year's winner, by Jim Guigli of Carmichael, CA:|

She wore a dress the same color as her eyes her father brought her from San Francisco.
