The Week contest
This week’s question: A Utah mom gave her 6-year-old her Amazon password to order a single Barbie doll as a reward, and then got a delivery of $350 worth of Barbies and other toys. Please come up with the name of a horror film or comedy based on a child acquiring his or her parents’ passwords for Amazon and other potentially expensive websites.
Last week’s contest: A Virginia Democrat running for congressional office has accused her Republican opponent of being “a devotee of Bigfoot erotica,” after it was revealed that he had posted images of a nude Bigfoot on social media. If Hollywood were to make a film about a politician who wants to convince the world that Bigfoot is real, what would it be called?
THE WINNER: “The Man-fur-ian Candidate” Maria Zajczenko-Varela, Chicago
SECOND PLACE: “Ballot and the Beast” Tom Huitema, Portage, Mich.
THIRD PLACE: “Mr. Myth Goes to Washington” Phyllis Klein, New York City
