    Just wanted to point out that the first sentence of the novel “Paul
    Clifford” wasn’t just, “It was a dark and stormy night.” That sentence
    isn’t that bad by itself. No, Bulwer-Lytton’s opening sentence was much,
    much worse (and probably too long to read in the video).

    “It was a dark and stormy night; the rain fell in torrents, except at
    occasional intervals, when it was checked by a violent gust of wind which
    swept up the streets (for it is in London that our scene lies), rattling
    along the house-tops, and fiercely agitating the scanty flame of the lamps
    that struggled against the darkness.”

    You forgot thee Golden Poo Award. The Consumerist has awarded the Golden
    Poo award since 2006 to the Worst Company in America. Single elimination
    tournament voted on by readers March Madness style. Comcast took first
    place in 2010 and 2014 as well as second place twice and third place twice.
