The Week contest
This week’s question: An Ohio brewery worker who gave up food for Lent and drank only hearty craft beer claims he lost 44 pounds on his diet and has never felt better. If Del Hall were to write a beer-only diet book, what title could he give it?
Last week’s contest: Norwegian fishermen recently found a tame beluga whale wearing a camera harness stamped with “Equipment of St. Petersburg.” Officials suspect the creature escaped from a secret Russian military facility. If Hollywood were to make a thriller about a whale that spies for the Kremlin, what would the film be called?
THE WINNER: “The Spy Who Came in for the Cod” James Pearson, Anaheim, Calif.
SECOND PLACE: “The Blowhole Ultimatum” Ivan Kershner, Salem, S.C.
THIRD PLACE: “License to Krill” Suzanne Brooks, Quechee, Vt.
