Once again, it's time for our collaboration with the always amusing What Is It? Blog! Do you know what the, um, object in this picture is?
Place your guess in the comment section below. One guess per comment, please, though you can enter as many times as you 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?
Check out the What Is It? Blog for more clues. Good luck!
Update: the object in question is a fence twisting tool, it's for applying the vertical or stay wires to the lateral wires of a fence, patented even. The first person who figured out what it was for was theoneoneandonly. The funniest answer came from trishlovesdolphins, who recognized her Mother's Day gift:
This is the gift my husband gave me on Mother’s Day morning. It was so romantic, as I was receiving my card from my son, I heard him mumble “aw, crap.” Obviously, he forgot to wrap it. He ran out to the garage, he must have hidden it well because I heard all kinds of boxes being tossed around. I’m afraid to ask him what it is since he obviously put so much time and effort into choosing it, so if someone knows, please let me know. Right now, I’m just using it as a paper weight.
Both win t-shirts from the NeatoShop for their efforts! See the answers to all the mystery items of the week at the What Is It? blog. Thanks, to everyone who played, and watch for another What Is It game coming soon.
