This week’s question: The Rolling Stones have found an age-appropriate sponsor for their current North American tour: a trade association that promotes the sale of annuities. If Mick Jagger, 75, and his bandmates were to write a song about the importance of financial planning for seniors, what title could they give the track?
Last week’s contest: A Maryland man spent a year eating food past its expiration date—including year-old tortillas, nine-month-old yogurt, and moldy butter—in an effort to prove that those dates are arbitrary. Please come up with a title for a cookbook of recipes for outdated foods left in the back of supermarket shelves.
THE WINNER: “Green Eggs and Ham and Cheese and Salami” Paul Buchheit, Chicago
SECOND PLACE: “Better Ate Than Never” Greg Thomas, Mercer Island, Wash.
THIRD PLACE: “Everything Mold Is New Again” Cathy Fischer, Oakland
