Moxey tagged me for a meme.

I have to write short stories.

Only six words per story allowed.

Shorter sentences? Sure. Six words TOTAL.

I've done 55 word stories. Poorly.

Moxie wants to see some cleverness.

Disappointment? All signs point to yes!

Ok, I'm all done practicing now.


SIX WORD STORIES FROM TODAY'S NEWS

SF Mayor cheats. Surprise at heterosexuality.

Global warming. Exxon makes billions. Inconceivable!

France bans smoking. Depardieu gains weight. (That last link is NOT safe for work)

Iraq still crappiest place to shop.

The End



Hey, that was only marginally worse than I thought it would be. Low expectations are like manna from heaven.

Mike, your cleverness knows no bounds.

Six words make a sentence, not a story. Considering it was an exercise in futility - you did great.

Mike said...

Carey, I don't need your pity.

Kat, thanks for the pity!

Zelda, your sarcasm IS appreciated.

Never have nine words caused me so much stress.

An admirable job, as I knew you were capable of.

Mike said...

Mox, nine words? Gah! Which nine? Was it "and I am expecting something very clever from him" ?

"I do not think that means what you think it means."

Mike said...

Oh yeah? Well, surprise is on you. I'm not left handed!

Tasty said...

I am not left-handed either!
