W00t! It's time for our weekly collaboration with the always entertaining What Is It? Blog. Can you guess what this strange contraption is used for?
Place your guess in the comment section below. One guess per comment, please, though you can enter as many as you'd like. Please post no URLs or web links - let others play. You have until the answer is revealed at the What is It? Blog tomorrow.
Two winners: the first correct guess and the funniest but ultimately wrong guess will win T-shirts from the NeatoShop. Please write your selection alongside your guess, otherwise you forfeit the prize, mmkay? May we suggest the Science T-Shirts, Funny T-Shirts, and Artist-Designed T-Shirts categories?
For more clues, check out the What Is It? Blog. Good luck!Update 8/6/10 - the answer is: A Finger Protector for use by a dentist so that he doesn't get accidentally bitten.. Congratulations to PaperCat who got it right first. Congratulations to Galen who made me chuckle with "Gonzo's nosepiece from "The Muppets Go Medieval" starring Troy McClure."
