A lot of right answers. A lot of wrong answers.WHATIZIT-9-18b
It was kind of like watching a Bears game.
Last week’s guest photo taken by Oak Lawn’s Robin Fullarton was of Dippin’ Dots. A lot of folks got it right early, causing the weasels on the Board of Directors to fret if they would have to research to see if this would be a Whatizit? world record for correct guesses. But later in the game, we received a bevy of guesses for Pop Rocks candy (and one of Trix Cereal), which were incorrect. And the directors happily went back to their naps.
And who says that kids don’t read the newspaper? Chicago Ridge’s Casey Barker, 12, was the first to chomp up the right answer and added “Dippin Dots are one of my most favorite treats! Yum!’’
Other Dot dandies were Oak Lawn’s Steve Rosenbaum, Dan and Laura Heneghan and Cynthia Foulkes,Evergreen Park’s Amanda Callas and Henrietta Mysliwiec, plus Worth’s Mary Kurdziel, Theresa and George Rebersky and Sandy Joiner
Also dipping in with the right answer were Chicago Ridge’s Dana Oswald, Kathy Higgins and Patty Vandenberg, Orland Park’s Lisa Keysboe, Palos Heights’ Janet Lombard, the Friday Poker Ladies and Ice Cream Connoisseur Club from the O-Towns and Jim Cap from parts unknown.
The clue for this week is that this thing was mentioned in a Bruce Springsteen song.
