WHATIZIT? 7-31-14

  • Written by Jeff Vorva

Let us warn you ahead of time, we experiencedWHATIZIT-1-31 a hiccup (and a couple of belches) with our internet and we can’t be 100 percent sure that we have all of your guesses from last week. We think we were close, though.

  The correct answer was that it was a big ol’ propane tank painted as a hot dog.
  Extra credit (getting your name in capital letters) went to those who knew this thing was in Chicago Ridge.
  The first correct guessers were LINDA and RUSS MARTIN of Worth.
  We also had a correct guess from Angie Kostecki from Houston, Texas, who was visiting folks in Evergreen Park.
  Those who escaped the computer glitches were Worth’s E.J. OAKUEKE, TAMMY MORAN, FRANK AND DONNA HIRSCH, THERESA and GEORGE REBERSKY and CELESTE CAMERON, Chicago Ridge’s RICK TOWNER, DAN and KATHY HIGGINS, DANA OSWALD and JOE and MARILYN BLACKWELL, Oak Lawn’s JANE FOLEY, Hickory Hills’ ROBERT BEEGLE, the FRIDAY NIGHT POKER CLUB IN OAK LAWN, ORLAND PARK and OAK PARK and JIM CAP from parts unknown.
  Worth’s ROBERT SOLNER guessed correctly and also correctly guessed pork chop from two weeks ago as well but it wasn’t officially recorded in the books.
  Evergreen Park’s Jan Merchantz guessed the tank but did not provide the location, so she is just a regular winner. Hickory Hills’ Jack and Griffin Faddis also guessed the propane tank but said it was in Snug Harbor Bay, Wis. We don’t know if Snug Harbor is lucky enough to have one of these, but this photo was taken in the Ridge.
  An incorrect guess was of the Oscar Meyer Weinermobile. Christeen Towner also guessed the Weinermobile but said it was in Chicago Ridge.
  For those who guessed and did not make the paper, let us know and we’ll have a fun time next week.
  This week’s clue is that this thing can kills you two different ways.
  Send those guesses to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. by Monday night. Put WHATIZIT in the subject line and don’t forget your name and hometown.
