The Bulwer-Lytton Fiction Contest is a yearly contest in which writers are challenged to come up with the worst possible opening line for a hypothetical novel. Contestants compete in a variety of categories as well as in a single "worst of show" overall prize. Jim Guigli wrote 2006's winning entry.
Detective Bart Lasiter was in his office studying the light from his one small window falling on his super burrito when the door swung open to reveal a woman whose body said you've had your last burrito for a while, whose face said angels did exist, and whose eyes said she could make you dig your own grave and lick the shovel clean.
I enjoy reading the various category winners and dishonorable mentions for the annual Bulwer-Lytton contest, but I have to consider them an anachronism. Nothing produced through conscious effort could ever be more uniformly horrible than the opening lines to various and sundry works of erotic fan fiction. Picking out winning entries for the B-L 2006 is like lifting turds out of an ocean of diarrhea and congratulating each for their abhorrence. The Internet exists as a long opening line for the appallingly terrible novel being written by the collective minds of all of mankind.
To prove that Bulwer-Lytton ain't got nothin' on the Internet, I have formed my own awards and named them the Goku-Lytton Awards. I have searched through the filthiest flop houses and tenements of the Internet to bring you only the most vile and incoherent in opening lines. Because there were so many, I have categorized them to the exact specifications of the Bulwer-Lytton contest. Oh, and since I still have the original Goku statues hanging around, I'll hand those out to the winners.
Joe Rogan rubbed Lisa's huge hooters as she plunged her face into the tank, her tongue and luxurious lips seeking out a pickled horse cock which, once found, she would grip between her teeth and let slide down her throat like another sort of cock which was attached to Joe Rogan, but that was for her steaming hot second-ass to accommodate while she busied herself with the search for 16 briny equine schlongs.

Lennie Briscoe had a case, a case that meant the difference between the bad guys going to jail for a very long time and the perps walking on a technicality, but standing between Briscoe and Justice was DA Jack McCoy and the only way to get him to press charges on the suspects was to make the DA cum harder than he ever had before, which wasn't an easy task when you had A-list ball drainers like, Lt. Van Buren, who had been known to ride a stiff at a crime scene until it came back to life.

Golden fire of sunset kissed the tops of the cars parked outside the FBI building and Scully knew that she had to have Assistant Director Walter Skinner's filth inside of her, to fill her up like the wind fills the sail of a beautiful galleon, to plug every orifice with his hot unctuous shit and make the tears she felt from the loss of Mulder disappear beneath the tears of exquisite ecstasy she would shed as he squatted over her and delivered a perfect payload into her spread butthole.

Vash the Stampede rubbed spit on his turgid length, working the long length back and forth and squeezing on the ballbag beneath, as he ground his butt down hard on the trigun revolver and he wondered how the world could be so cruel so hard that a single tear rolled down his cheek, even as his boiling man-sap began to froth out across the saloon.
