The 2006 winners of the Lyttle Lytton Contest have been announced. There are a few good ones this year, though not as spectacular as previous years. The spectacularly fine-tuned rhythmical ineptness of the following two sentences:
"Cries of "Ahoy!" broke the turgid silence of the golf course; the Cap'n approached."
"I woke up shuddering; my soul was now dead inside."
were what make me laugh hardest, I think.
