What Is It? game 178

It is once again time for our collaboration with the always amusing What Is It? Blog. Do you know what this thing is? Can you take a wild guess?

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 each win a 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?

Check out the What Is It? Blog for more pictures of this object. Let your imagination run wild, and good luck!

Update: Porkhurst was the first of many with the correct answer. This object is a lunar tong, designed for picking up moon rocks! However, he did not select a shirt. Swami won a t-shirt for the funniest answer:
If you are familiar with "Treasure Island", you will recall the luau when John Silver is barbecuing ribs and he almost burned off his beard rearranging the fire, that's what inspired him to invent the device pictured above: Long Tong Silvers.

This is an tool used to ensure children go straight to bed and not dawdle or ask for another glass of water. It's called "Monster Under the Bed" tool. One parent would hide under the child's bed with the tool while the child was in the bathroom brushing his teeth. The other parent would put the child to bed and turn off the light and leave. IF the child tried to get out of bed the "MUTB" tool would snake out and grab the child's ankle. This tool worked much better than the "MITC" (Monster In The Closet) tool, IMO. Very effective, although this tool has fallen out of favor with all of those human rights organizations saying it's cruel and psychologically disturbing to the kids. Hey! It stopped them from wanting another glass of water. So what's a little crying?

It's a head lice picker/grabber. The extra long arm prevents the lice from jumping onto the nurse who has to inspect the kids' heads. Every elementary school has at least one lice grabber per class room.
