What’s Friday the 13th without a ScuttleButton puzzle to be solved?
How to Play
ScuttleButton, as you may know, is that weekly waste-of-time exercise where we post a vertical sequence of campaign buttons. Your job is to take one word (or concept) per button and add ’em up to arrive at a famous name or familiar expression. Guess the correct phrase and you could be the proud winner of the coveted Political Junkie button!
Enter your submission using the convenient submission form below, or email your submission to firstname.lastname@example.org. You must include your name and city/state to be eligible.
I Survived Ken Rudin’s 1st 50 — The person who produced this button was under the erroneous impression that I could possibly be that old.
Viva Che — Che Guevara, the South American leftist revolutionary who was killed by Bolivian forces in 1967.
(a black and white hand holding up a dove) — Vietnam peace button, circa 1967.
Elect Jesse Gray to Congress — Gray finished third in the 1970 Democratic primary in New York’s 18th CD, behind Charles Rangel and incumbent Adam Clayton Powell Jr.
And so, when you combine 50 + Che + Dove + Gray, you very well might come up with …
Fifty Shades of Grey. The 2011 erotic best seller turned into a movie that, by some accounts, is steamier than the Political Junkie podcast.
And the randomly-selected winner is … Brian Rougvie of North Rhine-Westphalia, Germany. Brian wins the coveted Political Junkie button.
