Oops - I almost forgot! Today is the we all get to play the guessing game, courtesy of the always awesome What is it? Blog. Can you guess what this strange (and dangerous!) looking tool is for?
And today being the first game of the month, let's have a prize. The first person who guessed right will win a Cool Jazz Ice Tray and Stirrers from the Neatorama Shop. If nobody got it right, then the funniest guess will win instead. Please post no links or URLs - let others play.
For more clues, check out the What is it? Blog. Click for more Cool and Unusual Ice Trays. Good luck!Update 9/5/09 - the answer is: A sugar devil or fruit auger, used at the general store to loosen compacted sugar or dried fruit from a barrel.
Congratulations to avalchfan who got it right!
