Welcome back, after our brief hiatus, to the New York Magazine Competition. On alternate Mondays (or, this week, Tuesday), we lay out a challenge and offer sample responses. Enter in the comments section or on Twitter with the hashtag we’ve provided, and 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. 69: “LAST-WORD DEFLATION.” Please ruin the effect of a familiar title or phrase by adding a word at the end. For example:

MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN ALREADY

LOUIS, I THINK THIS IS THE BEGINNING OF A BEAUTIFUL FRIENDSHIP BRACELET.”

HASTA LA VISTA, BABY GAP.” 

YOU TALKING TO ME? THEN WHO THE HELL ELSE ARE YOU TALKING TOYOU TALKING TO ME? WELL, I’M THE ONLY ONE HERE HELLO?”

Enter on Twitter with the hashtag #lastworddeflation, or in the comments thread below, by April 21.

RESULTS OF COMPETITION No. 68, REPLACE A WORD WITH SANDWICHES,” in which you were asked (after Chris Hayes’s reference to “Bernie Sandwiches”) to modify a familiar title or phrase thus.
