The Week contest
This week’s question: French butchers have written to the government asking for protection against militant vegans, whom they accuse of trying to kill off the country’s meat-eating culture by vandalizing butchers’ shops with anti-carnivore graffiti and stickers. If Hollywood were to make a movie about the escalating conflict between butchers and vegans, what title could it give the film?
Last week’s contest: A Florida woman who recently celebrated her 105th birthday has confessed that she has no idea how she reached such an old age, because she spent much of her life partying, drinking, gambling, and smoking. If Helen Granier were to write a book on how to live a long, bad habit–filled life, what could she title it?
THE WINNER: “As Old as Sin” Nora Guthrie, Santa Rosa, Calif.
SECOND PLACE: “Add Vice for Reaching Old Age” Donna Lauritzen, McMurray, Pa.
THIRD PLACE: “One Hundred Years of Attitude” Rich Greene, Novato, Calif.
