What Is It? Game 279

w00t! It's time for our weekly collaboration with the always neat What Is It? Blog.

Can you guess the item above? Your guess can win you a free T-shirt from the NeatoShop. Here's how to play:

Place your guess in the comment section below. One guess per comment, but you can enter as many guesses as you'd like in separate comments. Post no URLs or weblinks.

Like last week, we'll pick two winners who submit funny (but ultimately incorrect) guesses. If you guess correctly, then you're already awesome and that's a prize in and of itself, so you don't win any shirt, mmkay? You probably already won your fair amount of shirts, as the same group of people kept on winning the past What is it? game anyhoo.

So, it's up to you, funny Neatoramanauts: now you have twice the chance of winning that T-shirt you've always wanted! (Note: this week's What Is It? Game is true to its name - we actually don't know the purpose of this mysterious tool.)

Please write your T-shirt selection alongside your guess. If you don't include a T-shirt, you forfeit the prize. We suggest you take a look at the Funny T-shirt and Science T-shirt sections.

Take a look at the What Is It? Blog for more clues, then have at it!

Update: the pictured item is still a mystery gadget, but if any of the guesses check out, we'll find out later this weekend at the What Is It? Blog. However, that doesn't really matter, as the object of the game is to come up with a funny and clever answer. About half the answers were some variation of a Bat'leth (which it does resemble), but the first person to suggest it didn't even select a t-shirt, so we looked for other answers. MJ Druitt said it's a toe jam removal tool for elephants, which is good for a t-shirt! Then The Professor said, "This device was once used to pry lobbyists and politicians apart if they got too close. Unfortunately since this device is the only one in existence and is now in the hands of the What Is It? Blog, politicians and lobbyists have become permanently fused at the wallet and are completely inseparable." That also deserves a t-shirt from the NeatoShop! Thanks to everyone who played this week, and stay tuned for the next edition of the What Is It? game, from Neatorama and the What Is It? Blog. Update #2: The real answer is... This is a tool for holding the lid on a barbecue grill at various heights. See the answers to all this week's mystery items at the What Is it? blog.

It's a bat-a-rang on a stick. The handle can be used for throwing the batarang or used as a club if the perp is in very close proximity.
