Name that Zoot Contest Extended to Friday

Zoot SuitPenn Press is doing you solid. We're extending the deadline for this week's Name that Zoot contest to Friday, August 5 at 12:00  noon eastern time.

This week's winner will receive a copy of Zoot Suit: The Enigmatic Career of an Extreme Style by Kathy Peiss, plus a chance at the grand prize, a gift certificate for ReVamp vintage clothing reproduction.

Here again is the final question.

Name the famous bird who stars in the patriotic propaganda cartoon Spirit of '43. In this animated short, a zoot suit wearing spendthrift tempts this civilian bird to waste war time wages on pleasure instead of paying taxes and buying war bonds.

If you know the answer, please send it to pressmkt@pobox.upenn.edu.

Send your answer by 12:00 noon on August 5, 2011. If you answer correctly, you will be entered in a raffle to win a copy of Zoot Suit. The winner of the grand prize will be selected from the four weekly winners.

This week's winner  and the winner of the grand prize will be announced on August 5 and notified by email.
