Opening Sentence of the Day: One Fat Englishman



"What's he like?"

-- One Fat Englishman by Kingsley Amis

Not much to go on, but this cocktail party chit chat opening sentence becomes a clever dialog about a visiting linguistics professor and his hot wife. Amis is a real favorite of mine, so there is not much he can do wrong in my eyes.
