The Week contest
This week’s question: Japan Airlines recently added a “child icon” to its online seat maps, so fliers can identify seats that will be occupied by passengers ages 2 and under. In seven words or fewer, please come up with an advertising slogan that JAL could use to appeal to fliers who want to avoid screaming infants.
Last week’s contest: 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, so as to conserve resources. If a chef were to write a cookbook detailing how to turn roadkill into a wedding feast, what appetizing title should it have?
THE WINNER: “Treaded Bliss” Diane Mareck Page, Santa Rosa, Calif.
SECOND PLACE: “Love Struck” Joe Frank, Scottsdale, Ariz.
THIRD PLACE: “Wedding Crashers” Bill Mistele, New City, N.Y.
