The FirStink

The prize given to "First Offenders" in The Style Invitational, The Washington Post's weekly humor/wordplay contest. Contestants, aka Losers, in the contest are said to "get ink" when they're published, so this is for a contestant's first ink, after which he or she may go on to win such prizes as the "My Cup Punneth Over" mug, the "Almost Valuable Player" Grossery Bag, or Loser Magnets for honorable mentions.
