The following is a (very) short story I wrote as a student in a grammar class. I was trying to find a witty way to describe the difference between hanged and hung.
The paintings of hanged corpses all hung in the gallery. As the exhibit was also a piece of performance art, the artist had put a noose around his neck and hung himself on the wall as well. Unfortunately, a spectator noticed that he was no longer breathing. When the police were called, they had no choice but to file a report about the man who’d both hung himself on purpose and hanged himself by mistake.
