opening lines of the book which has really impressed me and i found hilarious are the lines from the PG Wodehouse's heavy weather. it goes like this:

"SUNSHINE pierced the haze that enveloped London.
It came down Fleet Street, turned to the right, stopped
at the premises of the Mammoth Publishing Company,
and, entering through an upper window, beamed pleasantly
upon Lord Tilbury, founder and proprietor of that vast
factory of popular literature as he sat reading the batch
of weekly papers which his secretary had placed on the
desk for his inspection. Among the secrets of this great
man's success was the fact that he kept a personal eye
on all the firm's products.

Considering what a pleasing rarity sunshine in London
is, one might have expected the man behind the Mammoth
to beam back. Instead, he merely pressed the buzzer.
His secretary appeared. He pointed silently. The secretary drew the shade, and the sunshine, having called without an appointment, was excluded.
