Between 1920 and 1930 the writer Ernest Hemingway was at a bar in Paris with other artists. When he claimed he could write a story in just six words, everyone in the company made fun of him. Then he made a money bet with them, that he could indeed write a story formed in three sections - beginning, middle and end - in just six words.
So, he took a napkin and wrote: "For sale: baby shoes never worn".
He definitely won the bet, since his story was complete.
