The Week contest
This week’s question: Penn State has banned the college’s 98-year-old Outing Club from going on hiking, canoeing, or camping trips, after deciding that outdoors activities are too dangerous and could lead to lawsuits. Please come up with the name of a new student club that would satisfy the college’s safety-first agenda.
Last week’s contest: 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?
THE WINNER: “You Want a Piece of Me?” Barbara Berryman, Brookhaven, Ga.
SECOND PLACE: “Thrice Bitten, Won’t Die” Jennifer Keifer, Danvers, Mass.
THIRD PLACE: “Prey Tell” Dean M. Kilgore, Austin
