The Week contest
This week’s question: A totally naked New Hampshire man who was arrested in a “yoga-like pose” at a New Hampshire gym told police that he had believed the gym’s slogan that it’s a “Judgement Free Zone.” If a fitness company were to launch a chain of gyms where people could exercise freely in the buff, what name could it give the business?
Last week’s contest: Scientists in Germany have discovered that wearing a tightly secured necktie can reduce the flow of blood to the brain by some 7.5 percent, potentially diminishing the wearer’s brain function. Please come up with a medical term to describe the condition men may suffer from wearing a too-tight collar and tie to the office.
THE WINNER: Ascotphyxiation Laurel Rose, Pittsburgh
SECOND PLACE: Tie-poxia Corey French, Carmel, Ind.
THIRD PLACE: Windsor Half-Wit Dallas Lea, Niskayuna, N.Y.
