Oct. 7’s winner for the photo featuring a couple:

A Chicago Cubs fan and a Chicago White Sox fan are hoping they can at least pick a winning horse. — Jeannine Sabaj, Oak Lawn

Runners-up:

The parents of the unknown comic check out their son’s next show. — EJ Oahueke, Worth

It’s only 600 more miles to Box Elder, S.D. — Pat Foley, Homer Glen

The Blockheads continue their search for a new plastic surgeon. — Toni Yadron, Tinley Park

Best of the Rest:

What do you mean you can’t find who we are or where we are? — Michael A. Smith, Oak Lawn

Don’t be such a square. Think outside the box, man. — George Bereckis, Romeoville

Two Green Bay Packers fans testing the post office slogan, “If it fits, it ships,” to get to Lambeau Field. — Joseph A. Vaccaro, Tinley Park

We may be a couple of blockheads, but at least I have some curb appeal. — Nancy Smith-Slee, Palos Heights

Are we boxed in for the next race? — Lynne Moleck, Hickory Hills

Turn to the sports section, Bill. We can check the box scores. — David Nelson, Crestwood

It’s always best to think outside the box. — Lenore T. Colson, Palos Heights

Hey, blockhead, do you think the Secret Service are going to recognize us since the government shutdown? — Willie Lampkin, Oak Forest

Let’s think outside the box and play the trifecta. — Sandy VanderMeer, South Holland

See! It’s right there in this old program. There’s Great-grandpa Bob and his brother Phil wearing these same boxes in the bleachers at a Chicago Cubs game back in 1913. — Pat Flanigan, Oak Lawn

I think these disguises will work fine. No one will know we’re buying flowers, and we can get our Chicago White Sox season tickets at the same time. — Evert E. Kooyman, Oak Lawn

I’m glad we met. Before today I didn’t know any other members of the Blockhead clan. — Bernadine Wojcicki, Palos Heights

Seriously? You couldn’t find the normal bags for our heads? Now we stick out like sore thumbs in this crowd, and the flowers don’t help. — Tony Ficke, Homer Glen

Where shall we go for our winter vacation? Oh, here. Chicago. It’s warmer there. — Jerry Centner, Oak Forest

I laughed my head off reading about that. — Nancy Little, Palos Heights

Let’s see if our son SpongeBob SquarePants is mentioned in the program. By the way, your hairdo is just lovely. — John Morrissey, Tinley Park
