This week's collaboration with What is It? blog brings us this object (
5-1/2 5" tall). What is this mysterious object?
[No t-shirt for this round - congrats to Fodder, who won the last round.]
The answer is ... match holder:
The box is hollow with a hole at the top and bottom, and the piece of wood sticking out the top is attached to the base at the other end. When filled with matches, the box is lifted up an inch or two and when lowered back down a match will be found resting on the top.
Seems like no one has gotten it right!
