The Week Contest
This week’s question: Microsoft founder Bill Gates regained his crown as the world’s richest man after Amazon boss Jeff Bezos had to pay some $35 billion in a divorce settlement to his ex-wife and saw his wealth drop to $109 billion. If Bezos were to launch an app to help guide other tech billionaires through costly divorces, what could he call it?
Last week’s contest: A South Korean mortuary is offering people the chance to experience their own “living funeral” by lying in a closed coffin for 10 minutes, to help them appreciate the here and now. Please come up with a lively advertising slogan that a U.S. mortuary could use if it were to start offering this grave service.
THE WINNER: The rest is yet to come Wayne Harris, Madison, Wis.
SECOND PLACE: Try before you die Tom Hausfeld, Fairfield, Ohio
THIRD PLACE: Think inside the box Andrea Carla Michaels, San Francisco
