Really Short Story

Many bloggers were tagged with the 55-word-story tag in the past weeks, and we got to read a number of little stories. Some were quite interesting -- my favorite is the one by silverine in the comments to this post. All this "short storying" reminded me of a joke:

A famous British newspaper once held a short-story writing competition. The only condition was that each entry should contain the elements of mystery, sex, and royalty. There were a large number of entries, but the shortest one was really short. It read: "The Queen is pregnant. Who did it?"


  • Lol... And its a small small world! I wander into your blog and find a link to mine! I am always happy with FREE publicity! :o)

    Are you a fauji? Where in Delhi were you? Am I being intrusive?

  • About the link -- I am a frequent visitor to your blog, but today was the day I mastered the technique of presenting my Bloglines links on my blog.

    Me no fauji. "Technology" seemed so ordinary, so I selected a different virtual occupation :)

    I used to live in South Delhi for the major part of my stay there -- Kalkaji, Vasnt Kunj, SJ Enclave. A couple months in Vikas Puri too.

    Intrusive? Nope. Ask and thou shall be answered.
