The Week contest
This week’s question: A couple from Colorado with little sailing experience quit their jobs and spent all their savings on a 28-foot sailboat for a trip around the world, only to sink the vessel within sight of land shortly after leaving Florida. If the couple were to write a memoir about their exceptionally short ocean adventure, what could they call the book?
Last week’s contest: A team of NASA-funded researchers has found a method for converting human feces into an edible, protein-rich paste that could feed spaceship crews on a three-month flight to Mars. To persuade astronauts to survive on this recycled foodstuff, and perhaps to market it to the public, what appetizing, family-friendly name could NASA give it?
THE WINNER: In-N-Out-N-In-Again Burger Wallace Fingerett, Woodland Hills, Calif.
SECOND PLACE: Rehash Browns Larry Peterson, Denison, Iowa
THIRD PLACE: Déjà Food Dennis Relihan, San Tan Valley, Ariz.
