What Is It? Game 138

My oh my, it's Thursday already. Time for our weekly collaboration with the always intriguing What Is It? Blog! Let's get started: what is the object above used for?

Place your guess in the comment section. One guess per comment, please - though you can enter as many as you'd like. Let others play, do not post any URL or web link (doing so will invalidate your entry). You have until the answer is revealed at the What Is It? Blog. Two winners: the first correct guess and the funniest albeit ultimately wrong guess.

Let's mix it up a bit: Winners will get a neat Kitchen Stuff item from the NeatoShop worth $20 or less. Go on, take a look there. IMPORTANT: Please write your choice alongside your guess. If you don't make your selection then you *forfeit* the prize, mmkay?

For more clues, check out the What Is It? Blog. Good luck!

Update 5/17/10 - the answer is: A naval bar shot, it was fired from a cannon and was designed to rip away an enemy ship's rigging, similar to chain shot. Congratulations to Anonymustard who got it right first (but declined the prize) and to The Flint Skinny's guess of Michael Clarke Duncan's Prince Albert. Whatever you do, DO NOT Google it!

Its an olive crusher. A limestone container with a cicualr groove which this metal thingy goes round in crushing the olives for oil. I have NO IDEA how to better explain it.
