It was a dark and stormy night, the beer fell down our throats in torrents, except when we missed our mouths and soiled our trousers. 

Today, we cover what is considered to be the worst opening line to a novel in all of human history. But don’t take our word for it. There’s a whole contest dedicated to it! We discuss why the opening sentence is bad, then read a bunch of winners and losers from the 2019 Bulwer Lytton Fiction Contest.
