Second Annual Six-Word Story Contest

Dan is too much of a chicken to re-implement the contest for the best Second Annual Six-Word Story Contest, so I am taking it upon myself to be the "man." (Like that "sexual language" as Sister Morgan says?)

Winner gets a Viking Bar. Just kidding, this is a joke in honor of the good old Education Department. If you don't get it, just read on.

Rules:
1. Must be six words long--no longer, no shorter.
2. Don't cheat. (If you figure out how to cheat, please let us know.)
3. No profanity please (unless it's imperative for the story).
4. Submit all entries as responses to this post. (If they are bad, log in as Kaitlin when she's not looking.)

Here is my six word story. (That wasn't it).

Creeeeeek. Tip-toe, tip-toe. AAAAHHHHHHH! Older brothers!

T & J said...

Rushing water. Flailing arms. Tipped canoe.

Chan said...

"Authentic?"
"Yup"
"I'll take it."
Sucker.

Chan said...

Crumbling chimney. Blackened foundation. Green shoots.

Sky said...

Jami, it's interesting how many different perspectives we have on your canoe tip, though I'm still slightly ashamed we ran for cameras rather than help you out of the river.

Icy Jami. Chan smiles. Kaitlin yells.

Sky said...

Dentists. Drills. Edges blur. Kill.

Emily Poteet said...

Sister Morgan's story was too short.

Crystal said...

Dan was my hero until today.

iBo said...

American Eagle eats Tommy in Hollister.

Dan said...

Crystal, you were never my hero.

Crystal said...

Dear Dan:

I hate you.

Matthew R. Hall, Esq. said...

"Cute roommates? And nunnathis kinda-cute crap."

Emily Poteet said...

I'm getting married in 41 days.

Sky said...

Emily's six are coolest words ever.

Matthew R. Hall, Esq. said...

Is "41" really a word? Nope.

Sky said...

Silly Esq, if you bend rules to count "nunnathis kinda-cute" as real words, I say 41 works, especially since it can be converted to hyphenated "forty-one," which is more legal than your "kinda-cute hyphenation."

New six
You know we're right, Matt, retract.

(Revision of short story for EmPo
Dentists. Drills. Edges blur. Dream. Kill.)

PS Matt and Ivor, questions. e-mail me when you have time.

Nate Russ said...

"...extra mustard."
"But isn't she allergic?"

Nate Russ said...

Blazing bulbs. Still snoozing. Totally toasted.

Nate Russ said...

glance downward. toe pivots. rooster crows.

Nate Russ said...

don't make sense. haven't slept awhile. (seriously though, if I'm not making sense thats why)

Dan said...

You pretend you don't see me.

T & J said...

"You're not pregnant yet?" Children's honesty.
(Funny story from Primary today.)

Crystal said...

I'm going to beat Sis. Morgan.

Julie M said...

Yeah. This is my favorite contest.

Julie M said...

You are 21? And you're married?
(Direct quote from a 6 year old)

Sky said...

Six-year-olds are incredibly scary.

Crystal said...

This one is for the ten-word story contest:

"This was a wedding ring, Crystal, not a toy crab."
(Sis. Morgan)

iBo said...

Possible conclusions to Crystal's story:

Hobos stole the ring for booze.

The toy crab ate the ring.

Found ring swallowed by little children.

Toddler chokes to death on ring. (this is matt's suggestion)

Orphans eat for another two weeks.

Missing ring distracts students from homework.

Matthew R. Hall, Esq. said...

Sitting, looking over the valley, alone.

iBo said...

Easier to insult than six-word story.

T & J said...

Stranger in my bed: overworked, exhausted.

Julie M said...

Six words can be too much.

Julie M said...

I forgot to tell you that.

Sky said...

1)Ibo's imagination is completely overthetop weird.
2)OK, therefore, let's move to Haiku.

Crystal said...

This is my haiku -
it's about nothing at all.
But it still works, right?

Emily Poteet said...

i love these six word contests. (And Matt, six is a word.)

Crystal said...

haha i forgot about these. I'm going to do this in my class tomorrow.
