HUMOR. The winner of this year's Bulwer Lytton Contest (held
by the English Department of San Jose State University
[California]), wherein one writes only the first line of a bad
novel, is:

"The sun oozed over the horizon, shoved aside darkness, crept
along the greensward, and, with sickly fingers, pushed through
the castle window, revealing the pillaged princess, hand at
throat, crown asunder, gaping in frenzied horror at the sated,
sodden amphibian lying beside her, disbelieving the magnitude
of the frog's deception, screaming madly, `You lied!'"
