The Week contest: Honest obit
Last week's question: An online obituary in which a family described the deceased as a selfish, "abusive" man whose life served no "obvious purpose" recently went viral. If an entrepreneur were to start a company that provided brutally honest obituaries and eulogies, what would it be called?
