The Week contest: Sleepy bus
This week's question: A Hong Kong bus company is selling tickets to a five-hour ride to nowhere designed to appeal to sleep-deprived people who are lulled into slumber on long rides. If a bus company were to launch a similar sleeping service in the U.S., what catchy name should it give the soporific business?
