The Week Contest
This week’s question: A Colorado man who previously had been mauled by a bear and bitten by a rattlesnake has survived his third wildlife encounter—a shark attack in Hawaii. If Dylan McWilliams were to write a memoir about his wildlife experiences, what title could he give the book?
Last week’s contest: A New York man rushed to the hospital with agonizing headaches after he scarfed a super-spicy Carolina Reaper chile pepper during a pepper-eating contest. Please come up with a medical term for the misery caused by eating overly incendiary food.
THE WINNER: Jalapaiño Drew Fagan, Gualala, Calif.
SECOND PLACE: Fire-arrhea Stuart Antrim, Cleveland, Ga.
THIRD PLACE: Hellitosis Greg Martin, La Crescenta, Calif.
