Well, whaddyaknow, it's time for our weekly collaboaration with the always awesome What is it? Blog. Today's mystery item is shown to the left: can you guess what it is used for?
Place your guess in the comment section. One guess per comment, please. You can enter as many as you'd like. Let others play, so post no URL or web links - doing so will forfeit your entry.
Two prizes as usual: a free T-shirt from the Neatorama Shop for the first person who guessed right and for the funniest albeit incorrect guess. You have until the correct answer is revealed at the What is it? Blog.
For more clues, check out the What is it? Blog. Good luck!Update 2/5/10 - The answer is: A probe from a policeman's Taser. Congratulations to chameloon who guessed right first and to pismonque who guessed "A sea monkey's harpoon, used when they go shrimpin'."
