"Detective Bart Lasiter was in his office studying the light from his one small window falling on his super burrito when the door swung open to reveal a woman whose body said you've had your last burrito for a while, whose face said angels did exist, and whose eyes said she could make you dig your own grave and lick the shovel clean."


Jim Guigli wrote that purple prose. It won him this year's Bulwer-Lytton Prize.

I read the winners every year, but this is the first one which made me snort out loud. Good work, Jim!
