We had quite a response to “The Jackson 6: Six-Word Obits for MJ,” receiving more than 450 submissions via email, Facebook, over at The Huffington Post, and above all in the comments section of my original post. We couldn’t pick just three, so we’ve decided upon these five across five themes which popped up a lot.
From ABC to PYT to RIP.
-Mary Elizabeth Williams
The sound of one glove clapping.
– Stephen B.
Best referencing moonwalking:
Moonwalked in and out of reality.
Born black man, died white woman.
– Trish Jacobson
Best Elvis metaphor:
Another king has left the building.
Loveliest idea from a judge as we decided the winners, who is not, of course, eligible to win:
Never child, Never land, never more.
– David Boyer
Each winner will receive the Six-Word Memoir book of their choice. Thanks to everyone who contributed and stay tuned for another six-word challenge on an entirely new topic later this week.
