Wired recently recounted that Ernest Hemingway once penned a story a mere six words long, which went: “For sale: baby shoes, never worn.” According to the article Hemingway considered it his “best work.”

Well, Wired challenged some top flight talent to come up with their own and I thought that was a lot of fun and that you might enjoy a few of them. From Wired:

Gown removed carelessly. Head, less so.
Joss Whedon

Machine. Unexpectedly, I’d invented a time
Alan Moore

Easy. Just touch the match to
Ursula K. Le Guin

Computer, did we bring batteries? Computer?
Eileen Gunn

And now my own humble attempt…
