Mine is an entry from the Bulwer-Lytton Bad Fiction Contest, so it's the opening line of an entirely imaginary book.

"Sheriff Chameleotoptor sighed with an air of weary sadness, and then turned to Doppelgutt and said 'The Senator must really have been on a bender this time— he left a party in Cleveland, Ohio, at 11:30 last night, and they found his car this morning in the smokestack of a British aircraft carrier in the Formosa Straits.'"

I don't care if it's supposed to be a bad opening line — it's amused me ever since I saw it in the Unix 'fortune' file, and it makes me want to read more. I imagine the Sheriff as some kind of Weirdness Magnet who has to deal with this sort of thing on a regular basis. Rather like The X-Files, except that the Sheriff stays the same and the paranormal investigators are new each week.
