The Week Contest
This week’s question: An iconoclastic forklift driver from Canada has tattooed almost every inch of his body in a Smurf-like blue. Donnie Snider says his unusual skin tone has earned him “gasps,” “free beers,” and “fist bumps.” If Snider were to write a memoir extolling the benefits of going blue, what should it be titled?
Last week’s contest: The Chinese video-sharing app TikTok has ordered its moderators to filter out videos by “ugly” people and users whose homes had “old and disreputable decorations.” If a Silicon Valley firm were to design a social media platform for people with less than beautiful faces and homes, what should it be called?
THE WINNER: EwwTube Ben Stevens, Statham, Ga.
SECOND PLACE: Wincetagram Troup Miller, Austin
THIRD PLACE: Missing LinkedIn Stephen Senappe, Orange Park, Fla.
