W00t! It's time for this week's collaboration with the always amazing What is it? Blog. Can you guess what this strange device above is used for?
Place your guess in the comment section. One guess per comment, please, though you can enter as many guesses as you'd like. Post no web links or URLs - doing so will invalidate your entry. You have until the answer is revealed on the What Is It? Blog tomorrow.
As usual, we have two prizes: the first correct guess and the funniest yet ultimately wrong guess will win a neat item from the NeatoShop. You can select from the Newly Listed category - anything $20 or under. IMPORTANT: Please write your prize selection alongside your guess, so visit the NeatoShop and take a look around, mmkay? If you don't write your prize selection, then you don't get the prize.
For more clues, check out the What Is It? Blog. Good luck!Update 6/4/10 - the answer is: whale oil lamp. Congratulations to Augie with the "Stanley Hookah Pipe." Delightfully wrong! (No one got it right)
