Question of the day

Jan 22, 2016

Our last question asked: J.P. Morgan Chase told investment bankers to do what? To take the weekends off, under an initiative called "Pencils Down."

Congratulations to Leila Palizi for being the very first to answer that correctly! Honorable mentions go out to these fine folks, as well: Carrie GrayDavid Daniel (who describes it as "relax and take some time off -- you know, as long as it doesn't interfere with work"), Craig PittmanJason HenselLucia A. WalinchusMark PoepselMaureen MacGregorTom BurtonJayna Wallace (who seems incredulous over the name: "Pencils, really?"), Ken Walker (who thinks the name is "surely provoking exam-taking PTSD"), Mark Gibbs (who jokes "the poor over-worked babies. Let's see, what does 'bankers' rhyme with?"), DebkrolFabiola Camacho (who also thinks the name is "giving employees flashbacks of middle school standardized testing"), Cindi Lash (who adds "There goes reconsidering a job in journalism?"), Lizzy Shaw (who adds "Hmm, wish I could get away with that!"), M Edward/Ed Borasky and Ron Casalotti (whose answer was this quip: "Take weekends off (one in 2016; one in 2017; and another two in 2018...)"). Shout out to Robert Fortner, who guessed the answer was "Go f#@k themselves. No, sorry. That was the Occupy Movement."

As for today's question, here it is: Washington City Paper is keeping track of what phenomenon that's struck stores, in advance of D.C.'s snowstorm?
