The Week contest - Costly chuckles
What would you call a comedy club that charged by the laugh?
Last week’s contest: A comedy club in Barcelona has started using facial-recognition equipment to monitor customers so it can charge them by the laugh. If a sister club with the same pricing system opened in the U.S., what would it be called?
