The Week contest: Feather food
This week's question: A Thai researcher is on the verge of a breakthrough — turning chicken feathers into a protein powder that can then be shaped into tasty cutlets or nuggets. If U.S. supermarkets were to start stocking this feather-based food, what appetizing brand name could it be sold under?
