Sept. 9’s winner for the photo featuring lions:
The tourists were tasty, but I thought I heard one of them say something about 200 horses under the hood. — Richard Rahn, Evergreen Park
The Triple L car security system works so well that even you can’t get back in your car. — Mike Shizas, Burbank
It’s not an elephant. It’s not a rhino. It must be from outer space. — John Morrissey, Tinley Park
I don’t know, Leo. A Range Rover is supposed to come with a cat-alytic converter, but I can’t sniff one out. — Evert E. Kooyman, Oak Lawn
Best of the Rest:
The cat-alytic converter inspectors can’t seem to find anything wrong with this vehicle. — Dawn Bruinius, Crestwood
I told you to check the oil before we left for Disney World. — Christine Kerwin, Steger
If you put your ear to the hood you can hear the engine purrs just like a kitten. And, as always, at Big Cat Motors you get our three-year warranty, and I’m not lion-ing. — Larry Rapsky, Lemont
Do you think we can afford the payments? — Jan Mitchell, Orland Park
Come out, Rover. We want to play. — Richard Jarema, Chicago’s Mount Greenwood community
Are we low on oil? — Ruth Smith, Monee
Red Rover, Red Rover, let lion come over. — Mary Becker-Justice, Burbank
The neighbors could always tell when Jack had a rip-roaring good time the night before. — Pat Foley, Homer Glen
I’m not lion. This hood tastes good. — Joe Marshall, Chicago Heights
Come down from there before you get hurt. Don’t you have any pride? — Joseph A. Vaccaro, Tinley Park
It’s got a lot of room in the back, but let’s get a look under the hood and see what kind of power this baby’s got. — Sandy Vandermeer
This was not in the brochure. — Ray Anzelmo, Evergreen Park
We ate the occupants. Why not their vehicle? Burp! — Mike Czworniak, Palos Hills
I can’t believe your lost those darn keys again. — Joanne Johnson, Tinley Park
Hey, guys, come up and smell this. It’s great. — Mary Rose Rodriguez, Hazel Crest
I wonder how many miles per gallon does it get, and is it big enough for our whole family? — JJ Zurek, Oak Lawn
The Range Rover is a great vehicle. And we ain’t lyin’. — Marilyn Johnson, Crest Hill
What do you think? Should we buy it? I think it’s what we need. — Gerrie Zuccarelli, Chicago
The engine looks OK. We can put the cubs in the back. I’ll try to strike a deal with the seller. — Joan E. Knudsen, Chicago Ridge
Are you sure you can’t take it back? You knew I wanted one in red. — Barbara J. Lis, Oak Lawn
It looks pretty neat, but I’ll have to talk it over with my mate. — Roseanne Gardner, Crete Township
