The Week contest
This week’s question: A British supermarket chain has become the country’s first mainstream grocer to sell edible insects, stocking its shelves with Smoky BBQ Crunchy Roasted Crickets. If a U.S. restaurant were to open a chain of eateries serving nutritious, bug-based meals, what appetizing name should it have?
Last week’s contest: A Texas woman marked the end of her 14-year marriage by hosting a party where she blew up her wedding dress in an explosion felt 15 miles away. If she were to launch a new business specializing in blasting apart relics of failed marriages and other romantic relationships, what should she call it?
