The Week contest
This week’s question: The Wilson restaurant in Manhattan has debuted a special menu for dogs and their owners to share, which includes a $42 grilled rib eye with baby vegetables. If a TV network were to launch a cooking show in which top chefs competed to create the finest dog’s dinner, what name could it give the series?
Last week’s contest: Astronauts from NASA’s six Apollo moon missions left 96 bags of human waste on the moon; if any microorganisms in the poop survived, it might indicate that hardy microbes can spread life throughout the universe. Please come up with a non-obscene title of a Hollywood film about a mission to retrieve and study what the astronauts left behind.
THE WINNER: “2021: A Waste Odyssey” Laurel Wroten, Petaluma, Calif.
SECOND PLACE: “The Ripe Stuff” John G. Everett, Watertown, Mass.
THIRD PLACE: “Interstoolar” Laurel Rose, Pittsburgh
