This week's collaboration with the What is it? Blog is super easy (maybe) - can you guess what the object above is used for?
Two prizes this week: a free Neatorama T-shirt for the first correct guess and another one for the funniest, but incorrect one. Place your guess in the comment section - one guess per comment, though you can enter as many as you can think of. Post no URLs or weblinks - let others play (if you do, you'll forfeit the prize).
For more clues, check out the What is it? Blog - Have fun and good luck!Update 7/3/09 - the answer is: A golf ball marker, according to the patent:
The object of the invention is to provide an instrument for impressing a distinctive mark, as the initials of a person, upon golf balls and the like, whereby, the ownership of said balls will be indicated and said balls returned to their owners, if lost and later found.
The part with the black handle is used to apply the ink, patent number 1,281,063..
Congrats to the winners: Jared, who got it right first, and Sam Saturday, who got me crackin' with "pocket mohel"!
