New York Competition No. 9: Watch That Last Word

By

Welcome back to the New York Magazine Competition. The best of last week's submissions, including the winner, appear below this week's call for entries.

It's easy to play: On Monday mornings, we'll lay out a challenge and offer a few sample responses. Give it your best shot in the comments section, or on Twitter with the hashtag we've provided, and on Sunday the editors will select a winner. Criteria are highly subjective, but heavily retweeted and favorited posts will have an advantage. The prize is a year's subscription to New York in print or a two-year subscription to the iPad edition (winner's choice). Full rules are here.

COMPETITION NO. 9: WATCH THAT LAST WORD. Please submit a familiar title or phrase that, with an added final word, takes an unexpected turn. For example:

THE GOLDFINCH: RECIPES

SUNDAY IN THE PARK WITH GEORGE ZIMMERMAN

SESAME STREET MEAT

Post your submission in the comments below, or on Twitter with the hashtag #thatlastword.
