    Good for the coyote.


  2. - fs - Monday, Apr 6, 20 @ 9:30 am:

    “Soon after, Wile E. realized his search was pointless, as the Roadrunner was an expert in social distancing”

    I’ve seen them in the loop before, so it’s not surprising they’re running around now.


  3. - Keyrock - Monday, Apr 6, 20 @ 9:34 am:

    Patrolling to keep order on Michigan Ave.


  4. - Colin O'Scopy - Monday, Apr 6, 20 @ 9:39 am:

    It reminds me of the show that aired on the History Channel a while ago called “Life After People”.

    Hey, where’d ya’ll go? How am I supposed to live with no trash to eat?


  6. - LINK - Monday, Apr 6, 20 @ 9:45 am:

    Where is Will Smith?


  7. - Army of the 12 Monkeys - Monday, Apr 6, 20 @ 9:48 am:

    We did it!


  8. - Dave Dahl - Monday, Apr 6, 20 @ 9:53 am:

    ACME headquarters has to be around here somewhere!


  9. - JoanP - Monday, Apr 6, 20 @ 9:53 am:

    Lightfoot’s new “stay at home” enforcement.


  10. - Behind the Scenes - Monday, Apr 6, 20 @ 9:54 am:

    Who let the dog out?? Who? Who?


  11. - MidState Anon - Monday, Apr 6, 20 @ 10:04 am:

    “I better hurry; I hear green lights don’t last long on this block…”


  12. - Wensicia - Monday, Apr 6, 20 @ 10:07 am:

    Where’s that Amazon van with my ACME shipment?


  13. - SAP - Monday, Apr 6, 20 @ 10:15 am:

    My understanding is that it was an essential coyote.


  14. - Northsider - Monday, Apr 6, 20 @ 10:21 am:

    Unseen in the photo is the coyote’s jaw flapping in the Roadrunner’s afterburner jetwash; from the light to Lake Shore Drive in two seconds.


  15. - walker - Monday, Apr 6, 20 @ 10:33 am:

    Where’s Will Smith?


  16. - Dance Band on the Titanic - Monday, Apr 6, 20 @ 10:49 am:

    Three months ago his brother was front page news for days. Now Mr. Coyote is reduced to a one-time caption contest on Capitol Fax.


  17. - Ken_in_Aurora - Monday, Apr 6, 20 @ 10:50 am:

    Earth abides…


  18. - Dog Lover - Monday, Apr 6, 20 @ 10:54 am:

    Saw one in my backyard this morning, but my backyard is in the woods and has a creek running through it. A couple days ago two of them came up to our porch while we sat at the table just a few feet away. They could easily see us through the slider. Way too bold.


  19. - Anyone Remember - Monday, Apr 6, 20 @ 10:58 am:

    “Elmer Fudd is right. It is vewy vewy quiet out here!”


  20. - Leatherneck - Monday, Apr 6, 20 @ 10:59 am:

    Does Squeezy still live here?


  21. - northernwatersports - Monday, Apr 6, 20 @ 11:06 am:

    Good ol’ Mother Nature, attempting to find some balance, giving us a hint that we should all remember…we all share this planet together, its water, its air, its resources and its space. Share nicely or suffer from her rath. Be smart, be healthy and be respectful. We will all benefit.
    Respectfully


  22. - Anyone Remember - Monday, Apr 6, 20 @ 11:25 am:

    Let’s see. There are editorials from media outlets to stop live coverage of Trump. Even an opponent of this position from the Trib concedes:

    “Whether people like — or trust — what he says, they needed to hear him try to explain how he would reopen the country for business by Easter. People needed to hear him outright lie about the availability of test kits. They needed to see him look reporters in the eye and say he always knew this was a pandemic, though everyone knows he did not.”

    Not aware of any media outlets saying the same about the Governor.


  23. - Practical Politics - Monday, Apr 6, 20 @ 11:25 am:

    I’ve always wondered if the bend in the Chicago River, west of the Merchandise Mart, known as “Wolf’s Point” really referred to coyotes rather than wolves?


  24. - Anyone Remember - Monday, Apr 6, 20 @ 11:25 am:

    Sorry, wrong post.


  25. - Streator Curmudgeon - Monday, Apr 6, 20 @ 11:38 am:

    “What’s up? I don’t smell that steakhouse that blows those sweet aromas out through its ventilation.”


  26. - Streator Curmudgeon - Monday, Apr 6, 20 @ 11:40 am:

    “I haven’t seen anything this quiet since Madigan’s New Year’s Eve party.”


  27. - Streator Curmudgeon - Monday, Apr 6, 20 @ 11:41 am:

    “What did Trump mean when he said this town has gone to the dogs. I don’t see any dogs.”


  28. - ???? - Monday, Apr 6, 20 @ 11:43 am:

    “I hope Macy’s isn’t sold out of masks!”


  29. - Streator Curmudgeon - Monday, Apr 6, 20 @ 11:43 am:

    “I guess I’m in the wrong neighborhood for kielbasa.”


  30. - TinyDancer(FKASue) - Monday, Apr 6, 20 @ 11:46 am:

    Where have all the poodles gone?
    Long time passing
    Where have all the poodles gone?
    Long time ago


  31. - Streator Curmudgeon - Monday, Apr 6, 20 @ 11:47 am:

    “Frank was right. All the girl coyotes must be up on Rush Street.”


  32. - WH Mess - Monday, Apr 6, 20 @ 11:50 am:

    SafeSpeed’s latest victim is heading to Phil Corboy’s condo to join the class action.


  33. - A Guy - Monday, Apr 6, 20 @ 11:54 am:

    Hey 47, we found your dog.

    /s, lol, jk, and whatever else you say to identify a joke.


  34. - Proud Sucker - Monday, Apr 6, 20 @ 12:15 pm:

    Now, if I paint a tunnel entrance on the Hancock Building will it lead me to the desert? Wait…what is that light in there…


  35. - 47th Ward - Monday, Apr 6, 20 @ 12:48 pm:

    Pretty funny A Guy.

    Having a sense of humor is extremely important these days. The news is too horrible, so finding lighter moments to fill with laughter is always appreciated.

    Keep it up.


  36. - Anon221 - Monday, Apr 6, 20 @ 12:49 pm:

    Meanwhile in Wales…

    (Look at the picture where the group is filing past empty shops including Ewe Felty Thing. It’s a hoot:))


  37. - Anonymous - Monday, Apr 6, 20 @ 12:54 pm:

    Streets and San unveils its new anti-rodent program targeting the Magnificent Mile.


  38. - 47th Ward - Monday, Apr 6, 20 @ 12:56 pm:

    Sorry, new computer. 12:54 was mine.


  39. - Groundhog Day - Monday, Apr 6, 20 @ 1:39 pm:

    I can’t wait to see this with LL photoshopped in telling him to STAY HOME


  40. - bogey golfer - Monday, Apr 6, 20 @ 2:05 pm:

    If this was a real photo, there would be an ACME anvil over his head.


  41. - thoughts matter - Monday, Apr 6, 20 @ 2:12 pm:

    He’s going to be really upset in a month or so when ’his’ street is overrun by cars and people again. I wonder how confused all our wildlife are right now.


  42. - Springfield Westsider - Monday, Apr 6, 20 @ 2:12 pm:

    Vanessa Carlton popped in my head with this photo…

    “Making my way downtown, walking fast, faces pass and I’m home bound….”


  43. - Hon. Don Gerard - Monday, Apr 6, 20 @ 2:16 pm:

    If he accidentally drops an anvil on his own head we will know he was a campaign operative working for downstate Republicans.


  44. - Boone's is Back - Monday, Apr 6, 20 @ 2:35 pm:

    So this is the coyote Ald. Hopkins was talking about….


  45. - 47th Ward - Monday, Apr 6, 20 @ 3:26 pm:

    Loyola’s Water Tower campus has really gone to the dogs.


  46. - 37B - Monday, Apr 6, 20 @ 3:40 pm:

    The Road Runner’s sheltering at home?

    Figures.


  47. - Flapdoodle - Monday, Apr 6, 20 @ 4:17 pm:

    The Wife saw this and muttered, “Sure, the*coyote* can go shopping on Michigan Avenue . . . .”


  48. - theCardinal - Tuesday, Apr 7, 20 @ 9:10 am:

    Coyote: “Dang with all the good joints closed, whats a dog gotta do to get a decent meal”
