It's time for our collaboration with the always amusing What Is It? Blog. Put on your thinking cap and figure out what the pictured items are -or just make up something ridiculous!
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: the items in question are indeed hitching blocks, they were carried in buggies and wagons to hitch horses to when there were no trees in the area. The first with the correct answer was Steve Pauk, who wins a t-shirt for knowing that. The funniest answer (and clever, too) came from jazzypig, who said this is A selection of “grudges”. These have handles, so that they’re easier to hold. That's worth a t-shirt from the NeatoShop! You'll find the answers to all this week's mystery items at the What Is It? blog. Thanks to everyone who entered!
