Six word story winners!

Here it is, the long awaited results to the first annual Six Word Story Challenge. It wasn't an easy one to judge, what with the twentieths of hundreds of entries we received, but I stuck with it.

So, without further ado, the winners:

In the category of best non-fiction six word story: Jaideep Oberoi, for "Hooked by blog: wasted more time."

In the category of most drama conveyed in six words: Tasha Ogryzlo for "MADMAN LOOSE. Hello? Anyone there? AAAAAHHHH!"

In the category of "Oooh, been there" Alan Suen for: Boy? Girl? "Not pregnant" Awkward silence.

In the category of best absurdist six word story: Travis Webber, "Iron plate in head. Magnetic bullets" (part three of a five volume series).

And finally, best haiku submitted in a contest for a six word story, Craig Martin, for "And Supergoat died too./The wolf was inedibly lean./Goat, on the other hand...

All our winners will receive a real French postcard with real French stamps, on which I will write a note with a realistic signature. Winners will also receive an invisible gift bag filled with hypothetical items from our non-existant sponsors, with an estimated value of zero Euros ( 0.6 zero CDN).

Congratulations everybody!

PS - I need your addresses.
