The Week contest
This week’s question: Lawyer George Conway, husband of White House spokeswoman Kellyanne Conway, is locked in a Twitter feud with his wife’s boss, whom he has called “nuts”; President Trump has in turn called George “a total loser.” If Hollywood were to make a romantic comedy about George and Kellyanne’s unusual home/work dynamic, what would it be called?
Last week’s contest: Federal prosecutors have charged 33 wealthy parents with allegedly using bribes, faked test scores, and phony athletic achievements to get their kids into elite colleges. Please come up with a title for a comedy about an elite couple trying to buy their underperforming offspring’s way into an Ivy League school.
THE WINNER: “Ferris Bueller’s Pay Off” Stacey Baker, Twin Peaks, Calif.
SECOND PLACE: “Faking and Entering” Jeff R. Patterson, Nashville
THIRD PLACE: “Father of the Bribe” Barbara James, Bedford, Mass.
