The Week Contest
This week’s question: New York’s state supreme court has ordered 30-year-old Michael Rotondo to move out of his parents’ home, after he ignored multiple eviction notices from his mom and dad as well as their repeated request to please get a job. In seven words or fewer, come up with an advertising slogan for a legal firm that specializes in evicting Millennials from their parents’ homes.
Last week’s contest: Ukraine has claimed that 10 of its military dolphins stationed in Crimea went on a hunger strike after Russia seized control of the peninsula in 2014, and have since starved to death—a charge that Moscow denies. If Hollywood were to make a war movie about these defiant dolphins’ act of anti-Russian resistance, what could the film be called?
THE WINNER: “A Few Good Mammals” Jim Daly, Thousand Oaks, Calif.
SECOND PLACE: “Crimea and Punishment” Paul Giorgianni, New York City
THIRD PLACE: “The Fin Red Line” —Barbie Avery, Atlanta
