The Week contest: Love Diego
This week's question: A 100-year-old giant tortoise named Diego is being allowed to retire from a captive-breeding program in the Galapagos after helping to save his endangered species by fathering more than 800 offspring over four decades. If a movie studio were to make a rom-com about Diego's passion-filled life story, what should the film be titled?
