The Style Invitational
WEEK 298: THE RIGHT STUFF
My monopoly on nooky.
No lumpy milk.
I'm no killjoy.
Jump upon my loin.
This week's contest: Write a sentence, or phrase, or entire passage, using only your right hand on the keyboard. This means you may use no keys to the left of N, H, Y and 7. (Unlike Archy the Cockroach, you may simultaneously use the shift key.) First-prize winner gets a talking Christmas wreath, which is worth $20.
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 298, c/o The Washington Post, 1150 15th St. NW,
Washington, D.C. 20071; fax them to 202-334-4312; or submit them via
Internet to: firstname.lastname@example.org. Internet users: Please indicate the
week number in the "subject" field. Also, please do not append

before Monday, Dec. 8. Important: Please include your postal address
and phone number. Winners will be announced three weeks from today.

appropriateness. No purchase necessary. This week's promo promo ad was
