The Week contest
This week’s question: Stressed-out New Yorkers are paying $75 for an hour of cow cuddling at an upstate farm that promises hugging a warm, 1,000-pound bovine can impart a sense of calm. If a therapist were to write a book about the health benefits of hugging cattle, what title should it have?
Last week’s contest: Australian shipping company Blue Star Line has announced plans to build Titanic II, modeled on the ocean liner that sank in 1912. Please come up with an advertising slogan that Blue Star Line could use to lure passengers who might not want to repeat history.
THE WINNER: The new Titanic. Everything but the sink Mike Chelstowski, Keene, N.H.
SECOND PLACE: The only iceberg is in the salad Nancy Noé, Tinton Falls, N.J.
THIRD PLACE: Titanic II: Now with more lifeboats David Rahn, Dallas
