6 word stories - an interesting exercise

posted by lollardfish first - but I enjoyed reading the article, so I'm also posting the link to read all of the short-short stories published by Wired:
6 word stories

The exercise was inspired by Hemmingway's "story" - "For sale: baby shoes, never worn."

my favorites from this writing exercise:

Rained, rained, rained, and never stopped.
- Howard Waldrop

K.I.A. Baghdad, Aged 18 - Closed Casket
- Richard K. Morgan

Osama’s time machine: President Gore concerned.
- Charles Stross

Dinosaurs return. Want their oil back.
- David Brin

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

Computer, did we bring batteries? Computer?
- Eileen Gunn

Tick tock tick tock tick tick.
- Neal Stephenson

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
