A New Contest (Not Ours)

We know you like to play contests (like this one and this one and this one). And we know that at least some of you have a fierce literary bent (as judged by your response to this post and this one and this one).

So there should be at least some interest in the following: a six-word memoir contest. That’s right — you have six words in which to write your life story. FWIW, here’s my entry: “On the seventh word, he rested.”

The prize for the six-word contest is an iPod, which is considerably better than the paltry autographed book that we give out.

If you do make a submission, feel free to post it as a comment on this site as well.
