The Week Contest
This week’s question: A growing number of workers are flaunting their bond with their employers by getting tattoos of corporate logos. If you were to get tattooed with a phrase that expressed your relationship with your employer in seven words or fewer, what would it say?
Last week’s contest: Researchers in Britain have warned that young children who grow up relying heavily on smartphones and tablets start school lacking the hand strength needed to hold a pencil and write. Please come up with a medical term to describe the hand-weakening syndrome that is afflicting these young “digital natives.”
THE WINNER: Acute thumbosis Sharon Townley, Vero Beach, Fla.
SECOND PLACE: Smarthritis Ken Kellam III, Dallas
THIRD PLACE: Awristed development James A. Gollata, Manitowoc, Wis.
