The Week Contest
This week’s question: Anthony “The Mooch” Scaramucci became the shortest-serving communications director in White House history when he was fired last week after just 10 days on the job. If Hollywood were to make a movie about The Mooch’s epic rise and foul-mouthed fall, what could it be called?
Last week’s contest: New research has revealed that American men ages 21 to 30 worked 12 percent fewer hours in 2015 than the same age group did in 2000, partly because they find video games more rewarding than low-wage jobs. Please come up with the title of a self-help book for young men who want to put down the game pad and get back to work.
THE WINNER: “Thinking Outside the Xbox” Mark Chartier, Lyme, Conn.
SECOND PLACE: “From PlayStation to Workstation” Lois Minter, Louisville
THIRD PLACE: “Call of Duty: Real Life” David Armstrong, New York City
