We thought last week’s photo was simple, but it turned out to be a toughie.
It was something most of you see every day – a pothole. It was a big pothole filled with rain water, but a pothole nonetheless. The clue about the crocodile stems from the fact that sections of a road develop crocodile cracks before disintegrating into a pothole and messing up your car after you hit it.
Palos Heights Alderman Jack Clifford was the first to weigh in with the correct answer.
Worth’s Robert Solner also guessed right. We owe him his name in the paper again because Worth’s Robert Solner also guessed correctly that the photo two weeks ago was of a whiteboard eraser but an e-mail snafu on our end prevented him from receive his due glory.
We’ll give partial credit to those who guessed a puddle and that means those folks get half of their names in the paper -- Hickory Hills’ Ja and Grif Fad and Ji Ca from parts unknown.
Incorrect guesses were of the Saganashkee Slough in Palos Hills and a swamp. This pothole was big but not that big.
This week’s clue is that is that you might see this newer packaged product on the 20th day of the fourth month of this year.
Send those guesses by Monday night to email@example.com. Put WHATIZIT? in the subject line and don’t forget your name and hometown. Photo by Jeff Vorva.
