For a plastic surgeon: "Good to the last droop."

This Story

The Republican Party, wishfully thinking: "Nobody doesn't like Sarah P."

Newly Reenergized Loser Malcolm Fleschner suggests this week's contest: Slightly alter an advertising slogan so that someone else could use it, as in Malcolm's examples above. "Slightly alter" means that it should be very clear what the original is!

Winner gets the Inker, the official Style Invitational trophy. Second place receives a Moonies, a fairly sizable doll that sticks to the inside of your car window. When you squeeze a little bulb on a tube, its pants go down so as to distract other drivers. Hardehar. This is the official Moonies doll used on the presidential limousine during the Clinton administration. Donated by Loser Rich Haynes.

Other runners-up win their choice of a coveted Style Invitational Loser T-shirt or yearned-for losers@washpost.com or fax to 202-334-4312. Deadline is Monday, March 21; results to be published April 10 (April 8 online). Put "Week 910" in the subject line of your e-mail, or it may be ignored as spam. Include your real name, postal address and phone number with your entry. See more rules at washingtonpost.com/styleinvitational. The revised title for next week's results is by Mike Ostapiej; this week's honorable-mentions subhead is by Howard Walderman.

Report from Week 907

in which the Empress invited you to award "naming rights" for some institution or person to some public facility or part of one. For humor's sake - that tends to be the sake she favors - the E chose to be pretty inclusive about what counts as such a facility.
