The Week Contest
This week’s question: It was recently revealed that the Pentagon spent $22 million between 2008 and 2011 on a program to determine if UFOs were alien spaceships that might pose a threat to the U.S. If a political candidate were to run a campaign centered on the search for extraterrestrials, what would be a suitable slogan?
Last week’s contest: Residents of the Irish village of Ringaskiddy claim that fumes from a nearby Viagra factory make the locals unusually frisky. If a movie studio were to make a romantic comedy about this village, what PG-rated title could it give the film?
THE WINNER: “Love, Olfactorily” Paul North, Petaluma, Calif.
SECOND PLACE: “You’ve Got Male Enhancement” Peter Smith, Los Angeles
THIRD PLACE: “Finnegan’s Awake” Kevin Gillogly, Thousand Oaks, Calif.
