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.
To recap: On alternate Monday mornings, we'll lay out a challenge and offer a sample responses. Enter 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. 14: THIS MOVIE NEEDS MOISTURE. Please replace one word in a well-known title with the dreaded word “moist.” For example:
CLOSE ENCOUNTERS OF THE MOIST KIND
THE MOIST TEMPTATION OF CHRIST
INDIANA JONES AND THE MOIST CRUSADE
EXTREMELY MOIST & INCREDIBLY CLOSE
Enter in the comments below, or on Twitter with the hashtag #replaceawordwithmoist.
