Ernest Hemingway allegedly considered his best work this six-word story:

"For sale: baby shoes, never used."


The editors of BlackBook asked several contemporary authors to come up with their own six-word stories. They include:

"Satan. Jehovah. Fifteen rounds. A draw." - Norman Mailer

"Grass. Cow. Calf. Milk. Cheese. France." - Rick Moody

"She gave. He took. He forgot." - Tobias Wolff

"Havana's no place for hockey, coach." - Nicholas Weinstock

"Horny professor. Failing co-ed. No tenure." - "A Short History of Academia" by Sue Grafton

"Mother's Day came, doubling Oedipus' pleasure." - Bruce Benderson

"Oh, that? It's nothing. Not contagious." - Augusten Burroughs

"My nemesis is dead. Now what?" - Michael Cunningham

"Poison, meditation, skiing, ants - nothing workd." - Edward Albee

What six-word story can you come up with?

and

"Catholics' tour in support of Honeycomb"
