W00t! It's time for another contest collaboration with the excellent What Is It? blog. Can you guess what this odd item is? This week, we are looking for funny and clever answers, not the correct one, but if you guess correctly, you'll win our undying respect. If you have one of the two funniest answers, you'll win a T-Shirt from the NeatoShop!
Place your guess in the comment section. One guess per comment, though you can enter as many guesses as you'd like. You have until the answer is revealed on the What Is It? Blog tomorrow.
Please write your prize selection alongside your guess, so visit the NeatoShop and take a look around. If you don't write your prize selection, then you don't get the prize. I think you'll like the selection of funny t-shirts and science t-shirts -or even t-shirts of your favorite blogs and websites.
There are other mystery items, too, at the What Is It? blog. Good luck!
Update: This is a pineapple eye snip, for removing the eyes when peeling them, patent number 681,339. What’s a pineapple eye? You can see them in this article about a different eye-removing tool.
Patrick Scott 1 had a funny answer: “Mom's tongue forceps, for washing your mouth out with soap, you foul mouthed kid!” Sounds like a good idea to me -and good for a T-shirt from the NeatoShop. So is the comment from tchitchou, “This is the device Edward scissorhands used to go to the bathroom. Everybody understand why. Brrrrrrrr.” Congratulations to both! We’ll do it again next week. See the answers to the other mystery items at the What Is It? blog.
