The Week contest
This week’s question: A British couple posted an online job ad in which they offered to pay a chef $6,000 to cook a roadkill banquet for their wedding; the pair says traditional wedding food is “resource-heavy and results in so much waste.” If a chef were to write a cookbook detailing how to turn roadkill into a wedding feast, what appetizing title should it have?
Last week’s contest: A New Zealand man brought an “emotional support clown” to a meeting where he was laid off; the clown mimed crying and made balloon animals to lighten the mood. Please provide the title of a business book about the beneficial role clowns can play in the workplace.
THE WINNER: “Mime OK—You’re OK” Laurel Rose, Pittsburgh, Pa.
SECOND PLACE: “From Bozo to Bezos” Guido Scarato, Pacific Grove, Calif.
THIRD PLACE: “Art of the Schlemiel” Lawrence Rathbun, Hubbardsville, N.Y.
