The Week Contest
This week’s question: Saudi King Salman bin Abdulaziz took more than 500 tons of luggage on a trip to Indonesia, including two limousines and a pair of specialty escalators. If someone were to set up a shipping firm catering solely to monarchs and billionaires, what could it be called?
Last week’s contest: The Oscars Best Picture debacle—in which La La Land was wrongly announced as the winner, instead of Moonlight—may have happened because the accounting executive responsible for handing out the winning envelopes was busy tweeting. How could a classic movie be renamed to reflect this embarrassing mix-up?
THE WINNER: “Fatal Distraction”
Ken Kellam, Dallas
SECOND PLACE: “Citizen Vain”
Alicia Trider, Chico, Calif.
THIRD PLACE: “Gone With the Win”
James Hausberg, Los Angeles
