This story's just six words long

Wired Magazine has an article titled Very Short Stories: stories of only six words, written by 33 famous authors.

This article is a fun and quick read, and it got me thinking. First, I was reminded of Isaac Asimov's short story "Silly Asses", which I realized could easily be crunched down to six words:

"A-bomb tests on OWN PLANET? Dumbasses."

And then I came up with a six-word version of the entire Harry Potter series, including the not-yet-written seventh book:

Survived evil wizard. Kill him someday!

Ooo, I can also trim Arthur C. Clarke's 10-word story, thus:

God: "Cancel GENESIS.EXE." No more universe.

What other stories can be shortened to six words (or fewer)?
