Live now: Week 9 of The Invitational
A movie-pangram contest, winning faux-artsy ideas, and Q&A with the Czar and the Empress at The Gene Pool
We’re back to wordplay in this week’s Invitational contest: It’s to use all the letters in a movie title — as many times as you like — to make a different movie title.
Deadline for Week 9 is Saturday, March 11, 4 p.m. Eastern.
And we have the winners for Czar Gene Weingarten’s contest to come up with a conceptual artwork that’s even more audacious (or at least funnier) than current gallery fare. (The chocolate bars above turn out to have inspired him, as he notes today.) It’s all online — along with Gene’s usual Q&A and readers’ own banter — now at The Gene Pool, live for questions till 2 p.m. Eastern time, readable forever.
Dive into the Pool HERE.
And still running — deadline extended to Saturday at 4 p.m. Eastern time: our contest for “pokes”: jokes (either old or new) told in the form of a rhyming poem. Win some socks that look like manicured feet in dainty sandals. See Week 8 here.

Empress of The Invitational
Too late to participate live, crazy day, but just FYI Drew Carey is not a MAGA guy, of course, but he has confessed to being a Libertarian a la Reagan and such: "Politics can be divisive but Carey hasn’t shied away from it. The comedian and Price Is Right host describes himself as a libertarian. He advocates for limited government. When it comes to party affiliation, Carey has supported the Libertarian Party, even backing its 2016 presidential candidate Gary Johnson. He also donated to Libertarian 2008 presidential candidate Ron Paul’s campaign."
