English Witerature!

Intentionally bad first lines from nonexistent novels, from the annual Bulwer-Lytton Fiction Contest in the USA:

Corinne considered the colours (palest green, grey and lavender) and texture (downy as the finest velvet) and wondered,"How long have these cold cuts been in my refrigerator?"
                                                                            Linda Boatright

Tucked in a dim corner of
The Ample Bounty Bar & Grille, Alice welcomed the fervent touch of the mysterious stranger's experienced hands because she had not been this close with a man in an achingly long time and, quivering breathlessly, began to think that this could be the beginning of something real, something forever, and not just a one-time encounter with a good Samaritan who was skilled at the Heimlich Manoeuvre.
