Making Light points out the Lyttle Lytton contest which is similar to Bulwer-Lytton but restricted to 25 words or less. The prose is less purple but some of these are hysterical. I chuckled at the official Bulwer-Lytton entries, but I was guffawing at some of these. Go check 'em out! I'd advise starting with the 2001 entries and working forward - there are some "special awards" that make more sense if you read chonologically.
