The Week Contest
This week’s question: Former Vice President Joe Biden recently claimed that if he and President Trump were still in high school, he would have “beat the hell out of him” for disrespecting women; Trump retorted that Biden would “go down hard and fast” in any fight. If Hollywood were to make a boxing movie about two septuagenarian politicians, what would the film be called?
Last week’s contest: A court in Romania has ruled that a 63-year-old man whose wife had him declared legally dead after he spent 10 years abroad remains dead even though he argued in person that he was alive. Please come up with a name for a book on the man’s situation.
