What Is It? Game 155



It is once again time for our collaboration with the always amusing What Is It? Blog. Can you guess what the pictured item is?

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: the first correct guess and the funniest (albeit ultimately wrong) guess will win T-shirt from the NeatoShop.

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?

For more clues, check out the What Is It? Blog. Good luck!

Both win T-shirts from the NeatoShop. Congratulations, guys!

Manual-Winding Punishment machine. The missing part on the handle is the paddle. You would wind a string around the tapered screw, place the punishee next to the paddle, then pull the string as hard as demanded by the crime.
