A story in six words? Wow!

Wired hired writers for short stories.
The rule is: only six words.
Hemingway was first, SciFi writers now.
OK, I stop. (no seriously now)

A few of my favorites here:

Vacuum collision. Orbits diverge. Farewell, love.
- David Brin
Gown removed carelessly. Head, less so.
- Joss Whedon
Longed for him. Got him. Shit.
- Margaret Atwood
From torched skyscrapers, men grew wings.
- Gregory Maguire
With bloody hands, I say good-bye.
- Frank Miller
It’s behind you! Hurry before it
- Rockne S. O’Bannon
The baby’s blood type? Human, mostly.
- Orson Scott Card
Tick tock tick tock tick tick.
- Neal Stephenson

Not that difficult? Try it yourself!

Bush President again. Oh shit no!

"Bush President again"

To die, alone, in the rain.,

Ok, so this is an well-known response to 'why did the chicken cross the road'? ...

But it could also be a response to why did GWB fire Rumsfeld and abandon his conservative base?

Here's to the Republicans dying alone in the rain! :)
