The idea behind Who Won the Week is for you to select who (or what) you think “won” this past week. Your selection can be anyone or anything — politicians, celebrities, athletes, authors, bloggers, your friends or family members, books, movies, TV shows, businesses, organizations, whatever.
I will be posting this prompt on Sunday mornings (my time). If you want to participate, write your own post designating who you think won the week and why you think they deserve your nod. Then link back to this post and tag you post with FWWTW.
I thought we’d have a little fun this week. Fun with U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders, that is. Bernie was spotted at Joe Biden’s inauguration sitting down with some, well, interesting mittens on.
Of course, this set off a viral explosion on Twitter, where creative people took Bernie and his mittens and photoshopped him into some iconic scenes. All of these were found on Twitter.
And in addition to these photoshopped pictures being laugh out loud funny, those wool mittens that Sanders wore to the presidential inauguration helped to raise $1.8 million in the last week for charitable organizations in Sanders’ home state of Vermont. The sum comes from the sale of merchandise with the Jan. 20 image of him sitting with his arms and legs crossed, clad in his brown parka and recycled wool mittens.
So who better than Bernie Sanders and his wool mittens to be declared this week’s Who Won the Week winner?
What about you? Who (or what) do you think won the week?
