After our own hearts in love of brevity, people are taking to the Internet to post their most treasured thoughts, sternest warnings, and greatest hopes and dreams, in just three words. Magic ones, of course. The meme #ThreeMAGICWords is trending all over the world, with sentiments from "I Love God" to "Forests Completely Restored" to "Never Trust Anyone" to "Zayn Is Back" leading the way. (The last one a reverie of One Direction fans about the return of Zayn Malik to the band.)
With its recent surge, #ThreeMAGICWords is cutting in half the well-known exercise in brevity known as Six Word Stories. The most famous of those prolix tales is attributed to Ernest Hemingway. The tearjerker reads: "For sale, baby shoes, never used." Six words never did this though: according to hashgurus, #ThreeMAGICWords is "trending at number 2 in Pakistan, number 1 in Philippines, number 5 in US, number 1 in Singapore, number 2 in Malaysia, number 5 in Australia, number 3 in World."
(BTW: "Two paragraphs plenty.")
