Ernest Hemingway wrote a six-word story. Can you?

    Revered author Ernest Hemingway challenged his colleagues by proclaiming he could write a story using six words. It read: "For sale: baby shoes, never worn." This short, simple story is overwhelming and full of meaning. Like its creator, the story is ingenious.

    Now it is your turn. Can you craft your own six word story?

      Fun idea. I didn't create these, but they're some of my favorites from http://www.sixwordstories.net/ .

      "Am artist. Lost arms. Still artist."

      "Doctor said indigestion; obituary said cancer."

      "Endless stars. Home is there somewhere."

      "Robot invasion?! Oh, found Off switch."

      One of my own...

      Man lands on moon. Discovers Earth.

    Distant journeys; nothing found; came home.
