YMMV / Hemingway's Six Word Story

  • Everyone Is Jesus in Purgatory: The mere vagueness of the text is enough to make people deduce that there's an implied meaning and context to the words, with most assuming its implying the shoes were meant for a baby who had died.
  • Tear Jerker: The common interpretation that the story is about a baby dying or a mother having a miscarriage.
