It's once again time for our collaboration with the always amusing What Is It? Blog. Can you guess what these things are? Or maybe you can amuse us with an entertaining wild guess!
Place your guess in the comment section below. One guess per comment, please, though you can enter as many guesses as you'd like in separate comments. 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 win 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?
For more clues, check out the What Is It? Blog. Good luck!
Update: Berhard was the first in and had the right answer, too! These are caulking chisels used on a ship, specifically "the Great Lakes schooner Mary A. Gregory, c. 1900." They are now in a museum display. The funniest answer came from Straight Flush, the first of several who mentioned Wolverine, who said "They are cancerous tissue growth removed from Wolverine’s thoracic cavity, not to mention adamantium tissues .. duh!" Both win a t-shirt from the NeatoShop! See the answers to all the mystery items this week at the What Is It? blog.
