So, I was reading an article on Cracked today that had an entry where Ernest Hemingway either bet someone(s) or was bet by someone that he could(n't) write a story with just six words. He promptly wrote on a napkin, "For sale: baby shoes, never worn," and collected his money. I did a little googling and has the status of this legend as undetermined, but it has inspired quite a few people regardless.

Here are a few from some recognizable names:

"Weird fan couples. I love them."

Someone on deviantart made a wierd crossover fan couple drawing with Makoto Kino (aka Sailor Jupiter) from Sailor Moon, and Frylock from Aqua Teen Hunger Force. Weird and random as it is, I love it because I love both shows.

I will have to admit that this is difficult. It looks so easy at first, but once you try to think of one, it's quite the opposite!
