The Week contest
This week’s question: A 363-pound man has emerged as champion of Russia’s “male slapping” contest, in which two competitors take turns forcefully slapping each other’s faces, until one gives up. If a film studio were to make a Rocky-like movie about a face slapper’s inspiring journey to the championship, what would it be called?
Last week’s contest: Lawyer George Conway, husband of White House spokeswoman Kellyanne Conway, is locked in a vitriolic Twitter feud with his wife’s boss. Please come up with the title of a romantic comedy about George and Kellyanne’s unusual home/work dynamic.
THE WINNER: “Crazy Rich Partisans” Laurel Rose, Pittsburgh
SECOND PLACE: “MAGAbout You” Loren Woodson Noblitt, Zionsville, Ind.
THIRD PLACE: “The War of the Rose Garden” Scott Barlow, Pequannock, N.J.
