The Week contest: Blast it
This week's question: A Texas woman marked the end of her 14-year marriage by hosting a party where she blew up her wedding dress in a satisfying explosion felt 15 miles away. If she were to launch a new business specializing in blasting apart relics of failed marriages and other romantic relationships, what should she call it?
