What is the best six-word story you can think of?

Asked by Vincentt (8079points) September 8th, 2009

Six-word stories are basically just that, stories that consist of exactly six words. No more, no less. Take for example Hemingway’s “For sale: baby shoes, never worn.”

So what is the most touching, funny or otherwise remarkable six-word story you can come up with?

And can I Tweet them?
