The Week Contest
This week’s question: Scientists have discovered that corny, pun-filled dad jokes can be instrumental in helping fathers forge close relationships with their sons and daughters. If researchers were to write a book extolling the many virtues of groan-inducing dad gags, what could it be called?
Last week’s contest: A $1 million robot monk programmed to deliver sermons is now preaching at an ancient Buddhist temple in Japan. Please come up with the title of a book about robot-led spirituality.
THE WINNER: “The Taominator” Jeff Morris, Alexandria, Va.
SECOND PLACE: “AI Ching” Tim Mistele, Coral Gables, Fla.
THIRD PLACE: “Ohm” Stefan Vaughan, Eureka, Calif.
