The Week contest: Looking for lizards
This week's question: Cold weather has compelled the National Weather Service to warn Floridians to watch out for cold-stunned iguanas, which have been tumbling from trees. If you were to design a road sign warning of the danger of falling, frozen reptiles, what would it say?
