Once again, it's time for our collaboration with the always amusing What Is It? Blog! Do you know what the object in this picture is?
Place your guess in the comment section below. One guess per comment, please, though you can enter as many as you'd like. Post no URLs or weblinks, as doing so will forfeit your entry. Two winners: the first correct guess and the funniest (albeit ultimately wrong) guess will each win a T-shirt from the NeatoShop.
Please write your T-shirt selection alongside your guess. If you don't include a selection, you forfeit the prize, okay? May we suggest the Science T-Shirt, Funny T-Shirt and Artist-Designed T-Shirts?
There are several additional pictures at the What Is It? Blog. Good luck!
Update: the mystery object is a corn sheller. There's more information about it at the What Is It? Blog. Berhard was the first in with the correct answer. The funniest answer came from sandyra, who said:
It's an Amish 'electric' razor for taking off the moustaches on the men (and some women, if you know what I mean). Since the Amish don't use 'electricity' they get it to rotate by hooking it up to a giant waterwheel.Both win t-shirts from the NeatoShop!
*note: The older versions tended to rip off the upper lip. This 'newer' model has a wood safety bar to prevent such mishaps."
