Hey look! It's time for our collaboration with the wonderful What Is It? Blog! Do you know what the object in this picture is? It doesn't really matter if you do, because we are looking for the funniest guesses. You can win a t-shirt from the NeatoShop! But first, read the rules:
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 who submit funny and/or clever (albeit ultimately wrong) answers will each win a T-shirt from the NeatoShop.
If you guess the correct answer, you'll get a big pat on the back, and many thanks from the owner of this thing, because he doesn't know what it is!
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?
Also, checkout the other mystery items of the week at the What Is It? Blog. Good luck!
Update: Several people contacted the What Is It? blog to say this was used to sharpen cutters for a sheep shearing handpiece. That didn't matter to us, as we were looking for the funniest answers. One that made everyone laugh was from pismonque, who said it was an early working model of the farmship Enterprise. That's worth a t-shirt! Dennis 4 had a funny one, too: "It's a heavy metal record player. It works best playing Iron Maiden." That's good enough to win a t-shirt from the NeatoShop, too! Thanks to everyone who played along this week -all of the guesses were worth reading, so you should do that. Check out the answers to all this week's mystery objects at the What Is It? blog.
