What Is It? game 217

It's time for our collaboration with the always fascinating 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 guesses as you'd like in separate comments. 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 another photo of the object (and more items to guess), check out the What Is It? Blog. Good luck!

Update: the mystery device is a billiard cue trimmer and tip fastener. The first one to know the answer was Doug D, but unfortunately he did not select a shirt. The funniest answer came from The Professor, who called it a Genie Shovebackinner, you know, for getting the genie back into the bottle. That's worth a t-shirt from the NeatoShop! You can find out the answers to all the mystery items of the week at the What Is It? blog. Thanks to everyone who played, and we'll do this again soon!

This is, without a doubt, a Babel Fish Inserter. Some people are quite squeamish about having a Babel Fish just dig its way into the inner ear so this helps by inserting them just a bit quicker. Babel Fish do not particularly enjoy this machine, but they realize that sometimes it must be done for the greater good.

Never found your self with a bottle of wine, but no corkscrew to open it ?
Well with this one tool here, this would not be a problem !
As you see this is used to forced the cork, yes but very deep inside the bottle and let flow the delicious liquid out !
I'm guessing they stop production because people realized it was easier and cheaper to carry a corkscrew in their pocket ...

Egg Breaker - you put an egg in the egg-shaped middle of the apparatus, then extend the telescoping center to crack the egg. The yolk and whites of the egg will then run down the channel into waiting receptcle.

On a bar bet in 1957, Herman Zindlekress invented the 'ZindleKress Toothpaste Tube Repacker.' Days later his lifeless corpse was found floating in bay, an empty tube of a then popular toothpaste 'Pepson's tooth polish' clutched in his left hand.

The repacker device vanished, until now.

I found a similiar object thrown out behind the vets office some years ago, it was used to sharpen the tails of house hold pussy cats. First you insert the tail,clamp down hard and turn the handle like when you sharpen a pencil.
