The spheres are obviously so smooth that they can cut through anything with their smoothness.

The man is a co-founder of Games Workshop, what did you expect?

I don't know about the worst sentence, but the best one I ever read was on a modded TF2 server with a player named "dinosaurs with lasers". The server kept saying things like "dinosaurs with lasers will explode in 10"

"...you're dead more often than you're alive..."

In reference to the Battlefield 3 beta. It pretty much sums up a big problem I have with the video game playing population. Being terrible at a game isn't a valid point for why it's a bad game. Which is what this guy was using it for.

If it were they could claim almost every game was bad

[edit for clarity]I suck at almost every game.* So if being bad at game was a valid criteria for considering the game to be badly made, then I would be able to consider almost all games bad.

*I'm even bad at Mario Party, a game designed to constantly try to level the playing field

Lush is apparently a popular slang term for 'cool' in the UK. My cousin keeps using it and it just sounds stupid to me.

So it means someone's "cool pubes" I'm not sure I'm with that description either.

I think this would have been sufficient.

Seriously though, I would never use the term 'lush pubes' because it just sounds odd. It sounds like a 13 year old trying to be sexually sophisticated, which considering the source, is entirely possible. But lush can mean to 'grow luxuriantly' and 'very sexually attractive.' It still doesn't quite work, but I see where they were trying to go.

Basically you're saying it's amazing?

I can say with the utmost confidence, I wish those two dudes were my best friends. We would go on the best adventures.

It don't know if this is the worst sentence I've ever read, but it's among the worst. From Keith Richards's autobiography, talking about the giant inflatable... penile stage prop the Stones used in a tour:
It was great was the cock, though we paid for it later in Mick’s wanting props at every tour after that, to cover his insecurities.
Because I'm interested in hearing about Mick Jagger's penis in a book about Keith Richards. And this is after he ranted about how Nixon hated him and the Rolling Stones personally and tried to stifle their performances. I think. I don't know, it felt like inane babbling after a while and I stopped.
