Yes, it's been done before...

...but, oh, is it good.

Hemingway started it. Write a story in six words. His was:
For sale: baby shoes, never worn.
Then I found this article when looking for science fiction short stories (any suggestions on some good ones would be welcome!). It showcases some great 6-word stories:

Gown removed carelessly. Head, less so.
- Joss Whedon

Longed for him. Got him. Shit.
- Margaret Atwood

It’s behind you! Hurry before it
- Rockne S. O’Bannon

The baby’s blood type? Human, mostly.
- Orson Scott Card

- Harry Harrison

Epitaph: He shouldn't have fed it.
- Brian Herbert

He read his obituary with confusion.
- Steven Meretzky
Dare I add one? I daren't.


OK, for serious, I'll share mine if you share yours:
Epic battle. Both die. Vultures win.
