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? You can win even if you don't know!
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?
Check out the What Is It? Blog for more clues. Good luck!
Update: the little hatchet-looking thing is actually a cigar box opener. The notch is for removing nails. The first commenter who knew that was just a guess, who wins a t-shirt from the NeatoShop! The real clue was at the What Is It? blog, where you'd read that it was only a few inches long. The funniest answer was from GlenW, who said, "Years after George Washington became famous for chopping down that cherry tree his less known cousin Hank started making and selling these as souvenirs to tourists at The White House during Washington's presidency." For that, he also wins a t-shirt! Find out the answers to all the mystery items of the week at the What Is It? blog, and stay tuned for the next What Is It? game at Neatorama.
