Irish literary account asks people to tell a classic Irish story in just 6 words, results are magnificent

A TWITTER account dedicated to Irish literary news asked its followers to get creative-- and in true Irish fashion, people didn't disappoint.

The Irish Literary Times (@IrishLitTimes) had a simple request for fans of the account: Write your own classic Irish short story in just six words. No more, no less.

And it wasn't a problem for the hundreds of creative Irish people who immediately got on board-- including Ireland's favourite musician (No,not Bono-- never Bono) Hozier.

The account made the request on Sunday September 1st, but the trend seems to be growing in popularity and shows no sign of slowing down-- in fact, two days later the six word stories seem to be flooding in faster and more creative than ever.

Get settled in with a cup of tea (Barry's or Lyons'), because here are some of the best classic 6 word Irish stories.
