The. One. Word. Sentence.

It's a anomaly I've noticed lately. Bloggers are doing it. Facebook statuses. Twitter tweets.

Fragments can be effective. But this is more than a fragment. It's a totally fragmented entire sentence. Like this:

I. Am. Not. Amused.

It's clever. And has become ubiquitous. I'm curious to know where it originated. And just how it has spread so organically throughout the Internet.

I have used it on occasion. I'm not sure whether I love it or hate it. But I think the One Word Sentence is here to stay.

What do you think about this style of writing?
