The Week Contest
This week’s question: A tanker truck carrying 12 tons of liquid chocolate overturned and spilled its load across a Polish highway last week, snarling six lanes of traffic and creating headaches for cleanup crews. If a confectioner were to scrape clean the blacktop and sell the spilled chocolate, what appetizing brand name could it give the recovered candy?
Last week’s contest: Kanye West was denounced by many of his fans after he called President Trump a “brother” who shares his “dragon energy,” and was spotted wearing a “Make America Great Again” hat signed by the president. If West were to release a new rap song about his defiant love for the president, what title could he give the track?
THE WINNER: “Gold Hair Digger” —Lonny Frye, Boulder
SECOND PLACE: “In Da Mar-a-Lago Club” Amy Pal, Mountain View, Calif.
THIRD PLACE: “He Ain’t Hillary, He’s My Brother” Norm Carrier, Flat Rock, N.C.
