The Week Contest
This week’s question: France is enduring its worst butter shortage since World War II—a national crisis in a country that loves its croissants and other buttery treats. If there were a movie about this uniquely Gallic nightmare, what (English-language) title would it have?
Last week’s contest: Java snobs are flocking to high-end coffee shops in California and New York to buy brews made from ultrarare beans that can cost up to $55 a cup. Please come up with a suitably pompous name for a luxury coffee concoction to be sold at that price.
THE WINNER: Chock full o’Bucks Janine Witte, New Hope, Pa.
SECOND PLACE: Costs a Latte Laurel Wroten, Petaluma, Calif.
THIRD PLACE: Gucci Gucci Brew Jim Healey, Aptos, Calif.
