The Week contest: PC holiday
This week's question: A string of U.S. radio stations have banned the 1944 song "Baby It's Cold Outside," over fears that the suggestive holiday classic may be "triggering" and inappropriate for the #MeToo era. If a musician were to record a holiday song guaranteed not to offend anyone, what title would it have?
