Oct. 14’s winner for the photo featuring a tiger and dolphins:

Dolphin says, “I’d swim the deepest ocean for you.” Tiger says, “I’d climb the highest mountain for you.” The other dolphin says, “You two idiots crack me up.” — Joseph A. Vaccaro, Tinley Park

Runners-up:

I’m dolphin-ately a cat-fish. I said that on porpoise. — Carl F. Rollberg, Calumet Park

“I think I love you, so what am I so afraid of?” — Karen Scrementi, Beecher

During halftime of the Miami Dolphins and Cincinnati Bengals football game the mascots compete in the Swimming with Sharks competition. — Larry Rapsky, Lemont

Best of the Rest:

Flipper meets Tony the Tiger. Opposites attract. — Richard Jarema, Chicago’s Mount Greenwood community

“Yo ho ho and a bottle of rum.” Look out, tummy, here it comes. I wonder what the cat’s thinking. — Cheri L. Ahner, Oak Lawn

OK, Flip. You mesmerize him with your bubble trick and I’ll slip this collar around his neck, and we’ll split the reward for the lost cat. — EJ Oahueke, Worth

Listen here, Tony the Tiger, there’s no need to stare. We’re the real Miami Dolphins. — Willie Lampkin, Oak Forest

OMG. Love at first sight is really true because I’m in love. — Cora Lee Blazek, Chicago

I think this one is cat-phishing. — Pat Foley, Homer Glen

A tiger can love a dolphin but where would they live? — Michelle Wegrzyn, Oak Lawn

Ever since those two met, Flipper never wants to play ringtoss. It’s not fair. — Tony Ficke, Homer Glen

Look somewhere else. I am not available. — Mary Klosiewski, Chicago

They look a lot smaller on television. — Vince Vizza, Evergreen Park

Tony, why don’t you go eat your Frosted Flakes and stop staring at us all day? — Mike Shizas, Burbank

Wow! I’m a fish-loving cat but I think I’ll take a pass on you. Besides, I’ve never seen a fishbowl of this size. — Evert E. Kooyman, Oak Lawn

We really must stop meeting like this. People are talking. — Sandra McAneney, Homewood

I’d like to wipe that smile off his face. — Tim Mahoney, Oak Lawn

The dolphin is thinking, “I’m safe behind this 4-inch thick glass.” The tiger is thinking, “Sledgehammer or dynamite?” — Eugene Sabaj, Oak Lawn

We share a common relative from long ago, Flipper, but you turned out funny-looking. — Joseph Redmond, Oak Lawn

Dolphins: “They’re grrrrrreat!” — John Morrissey, Tinley Park
