Writing a 50 word story is a real challenge.  I used to ask 10 and 11 year old children to do it.  It had to be 50 words, not 49 or 51.  To get a story with a good beginning, a solid main part and a convincing ending was difficult.  I know, I did it two or three times too. Whistle   Some children became very clever at  it and their stories were excellent.  Star   

OK, so who is first?

Ah! Now I get it.

MOS stands for Mr ChristopherO'lee & Sons Ltd.

Cripes, MOS, the Mars Bar Cross (MBC) is only granted by 'er majesty, Brenda II, for gallant deeds executed while on Community Service or ASBOs. I guess that you got yours on ORB duty for queen and country.
