The Week Contest
This week’s question: Husband and wife David and Claire Burke have been together for 16 happy years, and credit their relationship’s success to the fact that they have never lived under the same roof. If the British couple were to publish a marital-advice book based on their philosophy, what title could they give it?
Last week’s contest: A New York rapper who boasted that he was ignoring expert health warnings and staring at the solar eclipse without protective eyewear was forced to cancel several concerts after suffering eye damage. If Joey Bada$$ were to release a new song about his illuminating eclipse experience, what would it be called?
THE WINNER: “Rapper’s De-sight” Kathryn Farr, Lisbon, N.Y.
SECOND PLACE: “Can’t Hide Those Fryin’ Eyes” Leslie Harrison, Johns Creek, Ga.
THIRD PLACE: “Pupil Enemy No. 1” John Parry, Eldersburg, Md.
