Short, short sci-fi

Inspired by Hemingway's six word novel ("For sale: baby shoes, never worn."), a bunch of sci-fi writers submit their six word stories - they were published in Wired at the end of last year. I like the Margaret Atwood the best, but the Joss Whedon is really good, also (God help me) William Shatner's!

I like feminist sci-fi - so here's my own six word story:

War rages until women oust men.

Anyone else have a short short story?

All was good...or was it?

I've been meaning to tell you that after I read this in your blog my friends and I spent about an hour (half drunk on a Friday night) trying to come up with more of these....I can't remember any of them now, but it was so fun.
