Dec. 9’s winner for the photo featuring critters:

Hey, you in the mask and you the smelly one, get away from my antipasto. Stealing my food, huh? That’s it. Six more weeks of winter. — Joseph A. Vaccaro, Tinley Park

Runners-up:

I’m just a groundhog. They are the real hogs. — Richard Jarema, Chicago’s Mount Greenwood community

You’re lucky. You can eat all you want. Those vertical stripes really do make you look slim. — Joan Knudsen, Chicago Ridge

Hey, Cloudy, you gotta see this. Bandit and Stinky are stealing the cake with the Ex-Lax in it. — Richard Rahn, Evergreen Park

Best of the Rest:

As he locked himself in his room, the groundhog said, “It’s my party and I’ll cry if I want to.” — Mike Shizas, Burbank

Let’s keep eating his garden, Stinky. That stupid groundhog will not see us. He’s too busy looking for a weather vane. — Evert E. Kooyman, Oak Lawn

Cloudy attempts a trial run of what will be served for the Groundhog Day celebratory meal on his friends Phil Connors and Needlenose Ned. — Vince Vizza, Evergreen Park

There goes the neighborhood. — Art Tragnitz, Markham

He won’t dare come out now. I have my tail up. I’ll get him with my distinctive spray. You can keep eating. Don’t give me any tomatoes. Pass me the greens please. — Miriam Zegar, Orland Park

Don’t believe them. They’re not groundhogs in disguise. — Mike Sutko, Oak Lawn

Rocky lets Phil know they have an uninvited guest. Lunch smells pretty bad, but it still tastes just like chicken. — Nancy Smith-Slee, Palos Heights

What are you guys doing here? You’re usually in my back yard and in my garage. — John Morrissey, Tinley Park

From one critter to another, he who snoozes loses. — Penny Manus, Frankfort

Here is a holiday tray that everyone loves. — Jerry Centner, Oak Forest

Hallmark will come up with a name for this holiday. Perhaps Critter’s Day? — Eugene Sabaj, Oak Lawn

What happens when a skunk sees his shadow? Six more weeks of stench. — Staff submission
