Week 255 : Scandal in the Wind

Full Text (818   words)
Copyright The Washington Post Company Feb 1, 1998

This week's contest: Each of these items is somehow related to the current presidential scandal. Tell us how. Choose one or more than one. First-prize winner gets a vintage decorative rug featuring Elvis wearing a lei. It is worth $25.

First runner-up gets the tacky but estimable Style Invitational Loser Pen. Other runners-up receive the coveted Style Invitational Loser T-shirt. Honorable Mentions get the mildly sought-after Style Invitational bumper sticker. Winners will be selected on the basis of humor and originality. Mail your entries to the Style Invitational, Week 255, c/o The Washington Post, 1150 15th St. NW, Washington, D.C. 20071; fax them to 202-334-4312; or submit them via the Internet to this address: Internet users: Please indicate the week number in the "subject" field. Entries must be received on or before Monday, Feb. 9. Please include your address and phone number. Winners will be announced three weeks from today. Editors reserve the right to alter entries for taste, humor or appropriateness. No purchase necessary. The elephant's known for her nose / And not at all for her ear / Which this week is Dick Furno's / From Silver Spring, and here. Next Week: Hunter Thompson ear credit. Employees of The Washington Post, and members of their immediate families, are not eligible for prizes.

Report from Week 252,

in which you were asked to identify celebrities who were the secret inspirations for famous movies. As always in weeks with a giant reader response (more than 30,000 entries) we may have inadvertently overlooked some entries that were similar or identical to ones chosen as winners. If you feel cheated, please send us a stamped self-addressed envelope containing a naked photograph of yourself. Several good ideas were too popular to reward with prizes, including "Face/Off" (Michael Jackson), "Father of the Bride" (Woody Allen) and "The Adventures of Baron Munchausen" (Marv Albert).
