The Week contest
This week’s question: Bettina Rodriguez Aguilera, a Florida congressional candidate, claims she was abducted by aliens as a child, but doesn’t want to be defined by her extraterrestrial experience. If Rodriguez Aguilera were to write a memoir about her journey from alien abductee to political contender, what could it be titled?
Last week’s contest: 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 toys. Please come up with the name of a horror film or comedy based on a child acquiring his or her parents’ passwords for potentially expensive websites.
