The Week contest: Bigfoot is real
This week's question: A Virginia Democrat running for congressional office has accused her Republican opponent of being "a devotee of Bigfoot erotica," after it was revealed that he had posted images of a nude Bigfoot on social media. If Hollywood were to make a film about a politician who wants to convince the world that Bigfoot is real, what would it be called?
