What Is It? Game 134

Hooray! It's time for our weekly collaboration with the What Is It? Blog. Can you guess what the strange contraption above is used for?

Place your guess in the comment section. One guess per comment, please, though you can enter as many comments as you'd like. Please post no URL or web links (let others play!) - doing so will forfeit your entry. You have until the answer is revealed at the What Is It? Blog.

Two prizes as usual: the first correct guess and the funniest albeit incorrect guess will win T-shirts from the NeatoShop. IMPORTANT: Please write down your selection of T-Shirt alongside your guess. We've got tons of neat Science T-Shirts and Funny T-Shirts.

For more clues, check out the What is it? Blog. Good luck!

Update 4/16/10 - the answer is: A bacon rack or bacon hanger, for hanging a slab of bacon in a smokehouse:. Congratulations to Keith T who got it first, and to Casey for making me ROFL with "hipster earring."

It is a rack to hang, smoke and dry meat for jerky. Stainless so it can be sterilized. I happen to have 30 racks hanging up right now. Fun Fact: The guy that said 'tie rack' is not far off. I have seen the points fitted with a rounded piece of plastic and sold as tie racks!!!!
