I just heard a pretty funny one

"A long yellow booger of curry rolled down his black apron"

from the Novel 36 Questions That Changed My Mind About You

Just tossing it into the pile

How about some of Stephenie Meyer's supposedly "deep" jargon?

Describing someone as a "destroying angel" is basically calling them a mushroom. A mushroom that can kill you, yes, hence the name, but a mushroom nonetheless. There's also the whole "glowering sky" bit, which is supposed to convey the image of a cloudy grey day, but if you know the definition of "glower", it makes it sound like the sky itself is staring down at you in disappointment!

Oh my... I've never heard of a destroying angel XD I imagine the sky is quite dissatisfied with being mentioned in that thing called a book

" 'Snape!' ejaculated Slughorn, who looked the most shaken, pale and sweating."

Probably not the worst, but it certainly breaks the flow when reading a children's book.

"SNAPE!!" He nutted with fear in his eyes.

Quoting from Fifty Shades of Grey is like shooting fish in a barrel, so I'm going with this one from Chapter 16.5 from the novel of Sword Art Online:

"Two years worth of semen made a glopping noise as it flowed endlessly into Asuna."

This is official, by the way.

Reki Kawahara. Mind you, it's non-canon, but it's still vile considering it came from the official creator.

Oh... My goodness, I'm glad it's non-canon, If I wrote that I'd just like to pretend I never wrote it

"it was the best of times it was the worst of times" and then the whole of the book obsesses with the 'worst of times' part of the opening statement.

Much quoted it originates from the novel 'A tale of two cities'.

I must be the color of The Communist Manifesto.

Beat me to the punch. There are so many lines from that series that could be contenders for 'worst lines in literature history'. My favourite is:

"
His voice is warm and husky like dark melted chocolate fudge caramel... or something."

I know that this book is bashed a million times. I know that people have moved on.

But this line is so awful.

You’re interesting when you sleep. You talk.

That line reminds me of a character in my own little Gijinka AU. He talks in his sleep, and not just occasional mutterances either. You might be able to hear him actually conversing with someone in his dream, and he sounds awake when he's doing it!

All I remember of a particular line in Lord of the Flies is "an ancient civilization that had forgotten about him and was now in ruins", I think that's how it goes.
