The Week contest
This week’s question: Fox News host Pete Hegseth stunned viewers when he announced on air that he hasn’t washed his hands in 10 years. “Germs are not a real thing,” he said, because “I can’t see them.” If Hegseth were to write a book based on his unique views on hygiene, what title could he give it?
Last week’s contest: Former Starbucks CEO and aspiring presidential contender Howard Schultz has urged Americans to stop using the ugly word “billionaire” and instead refer to fabulously wealthy folks such as himself as “people of means.” Please come up with a catchier term to describe billionaires who’d rather not be called billionaires.
THE WINNER: The affluence burdened Bob Schall, Holly Springs, N.C.
SECOND PLACE: The gilt-ridden Kathy El-Assal, Middleton, Wis.
THIRD PLACE: The fun percent Barbara James, Bedford, Mass.
