What Is It? game 295

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.

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?

See more clues at the What Is It? Blog. Good luck!

Update: the pictured object is a twelve-barrel hand-crafted copper brewing kettle that was used by the Lemp Brewing Company in St. Louis, circa 1840. That's interesting, but not nearly as funny as the answers Neatoramanauts came up with! Bryan Hoerber said it was the tomb of Augustus Gloop inside Willie Wonka's Chocolate Factory. Samantha Simons said it was the first attempt at an Iron Man suit.

While doing an experiment with using methane gas as a fuel there was an accident. At first he had the right amount inside the suit, and the suit looked normal. But here's where things went bad. The previous night, he had eaten several burritos with extra beans. So with the combination of the gas inside the suit and the gas created by Iron Man himself, his suit expanded with a loud Phhhtttttbbbbttttt! Sound!

Both those answers are good enough to win a t-shirt from the NeatoShop! And the rest of the entries are pretty funny, too -you should check then out. Find the answers to all of this week's mystery items at the What Is It? blog.


Oh No! They've dismembered Tick-Tock from Return to Oz and are using him as a Cauldron for people who want to close out their bank accounts to switch to a Non-Profit Credit Union!!! Poor Tick-Tock...

Well, it's definately not a foot bath according to the sign on the base. Rather, it's the trophy from the final Copper Bowl played in 1996 at Tuscon, AZ. Now that bowl game is known as the Buffalo Wild Wings Bowl in which to the winner receives the copper tub full of buffalo wings and a side of ranch dipping sauce.

That is a copper kettle
It is used to clean the copper clappers at the Acme School bell company.
The copper clappers were then stored in a closet by the cleaning lady Clara Clifford. Sadly someone copped the clean copper clappers--Main suspect was Claude Cooper the Kleptomaniac from Cleveland. As a result of the copper clapper caper, Acme School Bell Company went out of business, and all that is left is the copper cleaning Kettle.

So This is one of Iron Man's first attempt at a suit. While doing an experiment with using methane gas as a fuel there was an accident. At first he had the right amount inside the suit, and the suit looked normal. But here's where things went bad. The previous night, he had eaten several burritos with extra beans.

You, you bas****s! That's the pot my many times great-grandmother Mehitabel* died in. *sob* Her sister Hepzibah* came rushing into the kitchen with her arms full of baskets of toads and newts, wait, I mean, carrots and cabbage, and knocked Mehitabel into the, erm, stew, yes, stew she was stirring. I'm going to go mourn for a bit now. Oh, the cruelty.

*I actually do have some ancestors named Mehitabel and Hepzibah. We do not discuss their demises.

It's a steampunk-style honey pot for sale at the land of the giants' bi-annual craft fair. .. overpriced by at least 20 or 30 golden eggs in my opinion.

Paula Deen's butter dish. It's actually a laundry kettle. I have seen women stiring a big kettle of laundry over a fire in the old Westerns. Laundry was done with boiling water and homemade lye soap for centuries. I don't wear t shirts can I get a gift cert?

You have to admit it is an unusual sign. I first I thought it was No Grim Reapers but a closer look reveals it to be No Pool Cleaners Allowed. The pool is kind of hard to see with that cooper stopper in the way

This is a fire barrel. Kept full of water, a hose could be attached at the bottom to provide a brief supply of water to keep a fire from spreading.

This is the beer gut of the Tin Man, who, after Dorothy left for Kansas, flew into a deep depression and drank himself into still. Note the lovely beer-aged patina and oversized belly button.
