Short Shorts

In the spirit of all of those poor souls who are going through it in preparation for college finals, I post this in good fun.

"A college class was told they had to write a short story in as few words as possible. The instructions were:

The story has to contain religion, sexuality, mystery.

The following was the only story to receive an A+.

Good God, I'm pregnant; I wonder who did it."

Ha.

  1. The version of this that I received said it had to include four elements: royalty, religion, sex & mystery. The winning entry:

    "My God," said the queen. "I'm pregnant. I wonder who did it."

    And just for kicks (because I'm a geek who likes knowing this kind of thing), you can read the origins of this story at Snopes: http://www.snopes.com/college/exam/brevity.asp
