Maybe the baby just didn't have feet?
User avatar #117 to #101 - biggrand (11/26/2012) [-]
I would have just out the baby in a jar and sold him instead of the shoes calling it a "found monster fetus"

This reminds me of the adventure time song "baby"

"you need them little baby socks, for your little baby feet."

'The last man on Earth sat alone in a room. There was a knock on the door...'   
I heard somewhere that this is the shortest horror story?

Yes, that's the shortest HORROR story.

You guys don't get it? He's the last man on earth, and the second he sits down in a room somewhere, some bitch knocks on the door, most likely to ask a stupid question like "If I died would you get re-married?" I'd be scared, too.

Well the flaw is that it says "man." Although, many people already point this out.

Oh, holy **** that was funny. No, seriously. My sides. All of my lulz. That was the most creative, refreshing joke I've heard all year. That was so goddamn funny, George Carlin is smiling in his grave. We need more insightful, brilliant comedians like yourself in an otherwise outdated, dead-horse-beating, cliche internet world.

Someone purchased baby shoes because they were expecting a baby, but it was a miscarriage and the baby never was able to wear the shoes. So the family sold the pair of baby shoes.
#81 to #79 - bloodyranger (11/26/2012) [-]
Whoever put up the ad for baby shoes probably lost a child due to complications during pregnancy. Thus it tells a story in under 10 words of the grief of a parent who lost their unborn child.

Ernest Hemingway wrote an article in the city newspaper. He got paid per story, not per word. So he told the editor off, and wrote a 6 word story instead of a long one.

I don't get it...
Can someone please explain it to me?
User avatar #77 to #72 - whovianofawesome (11/26/2012) [-]
It means that in 10 words, Ernest Hemingway told a story of a couple or a mother that is selling a pair of baby shoes that she bought for her unborn child, but she probably miscarried or it was stillborn.

Thanks guys.

The story is Baby shoes: For sale, never worn. It is implying that someone had a child but they died, so they are selling the baby clothes they bought for the child.
#73 to #72 - robotcomander (11/26/2012) [-]
the baby died before birth, or before it could wear the shoes
User avatar #83 to #73 - grogabusk (11/26/2012) [-]
Actually, it's obviously never stated that the baby died, but most people tend to immediately assume the worst and say that the baby must have died. We're pretty morbid in that way.

The beauty of this story is that it's completely unclear why the baby shoes were never worn. Was the baby given up for adoption, was it aborted, was it miscarried, did they simply not fit or were they the wrong color for whatever gender the baby was (as if color really needs to be associated with gender anyways).

Point being, there's a lot more to this story than the baby dying. The whole point of it is to make you think, and whatever you think is what really makes up the story.
#90 to #83 - robotcomander (11/26/2012) [-]
so... i'm right either way, correct?
User avatar #102 to #90 - grogabusk (11/26/2012) [-]
Yes and no. It's however you interrupt the story. Someone could say that the shoes were just too small for the baby and therefore couldn't ever be worn and they would be correct. Was just telling you that there are actually plenty of possibilities as to what happened to the story, it's just that most people, like you, immediately assume death.

This is the ******* Schrodinger's Cat of literature.
