Now it's time for our collaboration with the amazing What Is It? Blog! What is this object in the picture? You don't have to know to win a t-shirt from the NeatoShop!
Place your guess in the comment section below. One guess per comment, please, though you can enter as many as you'd like. You might know the true answer, but we're going to select two winners who come up with the funniest, most outlandish guesses to win a T-shirt from the NeatoShop. However...
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 another picture of the other side of this item at the What Is It? Blog. The let your imagination run wild! Good luck!
Update: This is a jar opener. We think the upper jaw should be flipped over so that the teeth are angled the same as the lower jaw. We saw some really funny but wrong answers proposed instead, the funniest being about our clothing. Laurinda had a good one:
This object is obviously a corset tightener. The aperture was opened, the teeth set against the corset's edges, then tightened with the included spanner (not pictured). A very handy device for getting ladies dressed into last year's fashions!
Chris Stevens came up with this one:
Ever crammed yourself into a pair of skinny jeans that were just a little *too* skinny? And, had the middle of the zipper bust open, but the top and bottom stay connected? This helpful tool is placed on the outside edges of the gaping zipper teeth and tightened up to bring your fastener back into fastenation! It's called "The Ripped Zipper Gripper ™".
Both are worth a T-shirt from the NeatoShop! Congratulations to our winners, and thanks to everyone who participated this week. See the answers to th either mystery items of the week at the What Is It? blog.
