The best thing about a smart and playful community of storytellers? You never know where they're going to take things next. One of the most enthusiastic trends in six-word wordplay of late involves adding four more words to these two: "More... than..." Some of the memoirs in the "More..." challenge are self-deprecating (“More pussy whipped than doggie style.” from the incomparable Loon). Others are self-aware (“More time with mouse than spouse.” via mojito59). Most are a satisfyingly playful dose of self-expression. You can read some of our favorites from the "More..." wordplay below. Be sure to click on an author’s name to see more of his or her Six-Word Memoirs.
