W00t! It's time for our collaboration with the always awesome What is it? Blog. This week's entry is this strange looking object to the left: can you guess what it is?
Two prizes this week: the first person to guess correctly and the funniest (but ultimately wrong) guess will win a T-shirt from the Neatorama Shop.
Contest rules are darned easy: place your guess in the comment below. One guess per comment, please, though you can enter as many as you'd like. Post no URL or web links - let others play (doing so will forfeit your entry).
For more clues, check out the What is it? Blog. Good luck!Update 11/6/09 - the answer is:An exercise club, the 1897 patent says it was "for the purpose of testing the strength of the wrist and forearm", additional weights could be attached to the bottom of it, patent number 578,230. Commonly known as Indian clubs, these can be found in a wide variety of sizes and weights.
Congratulations to Mr. Weaver who got it right first and to huh? for the um, very funny entry that I won't repeat here. :)
