I'm sure many of you know about the Lyttle Lytton contest, to come up with terrible first sentences to hypothetical novels.  It's really quite funny, much funnier than the long version in my opinion.  (Or the really long version, actual mass-market novels.)

Anyway, I forgot all about it, but I actually entered a horrid sentence last year.  I finally remembered that the 2013 "winners" should be up and what do you know, I got the 1st Honorable Mention.  They aren't put in any specific order, but I'm going to pretend they are.

The winners are here.  If you delve into past years, there are hours of amusement there.
