“Six” Word Epitaph
LOL  LOL  LOL

I know you snuck in a shorty. But come’on… who am I to question ‘Occam’s’ razor? You want to use four words, fine… but, but… you know… the newbie… the robot… I thought I could have a little fun with him…  red face

Now what makes this scandal even worse,
I found a beautiful five worder myself:

Jimi Sounds Like a Rainbow

(I haven’t even seen the book yet but I know it’ll be one of my Xmas presents to the grandkids.)

Ok now I get why you said that. I’ll upgrade my posts then.

Aw Cripes! The Scientologist were right!

and

Hey! Your keys are down here!

edit. LOL “Occams Razor”. It sounds like the title of a horror novel.

“If you can’t find my balls, look in my wife’s grave.”

Hmmm, let’s see what this means when translated out of metaphor.  “If you can’t find” equals “If it appears that I don’t have”.  “My balls” equals “self-respect, self-confidence, and assertiveness”.  “Look in my wife’s grave” equals “I have given them to my dead wife.”

So it comes out as, “If it appears that I don’t have self-respect, self-confidence, and assertiveness, I have given them to my dead wife.”

Is that what you meant, E-M?  smile

Oh! Absolutely not Occam.

I was referring to a guy who had played golf with his loving wife. She would hold all the golf balls and he’d carry all the clubs. I guess one could see it two ways. smile

Heard on Talk of the Nation
Can You Tell Your Life Story In Exactly Six Words?

February 3, 2010

Once asked to write a full story in six words, legend has it that novelist Ernest Hemingway responded: “For Sale: baby shoes, never worn.”

In this spirit, Smith Magazine invited writers “famous and obscure” to distill their own life stories into exactly six words. It All Changed in an Instant is the fourth collection of very, very brief life stories from Smith. The tiny memoirs are sometimes sad, often funny — and always concise.

Bears in the park, after dark.
