It's once again time for our collaboration with the always amusing What Is It? Blog. Can you guess what the pictured item is? Can you make up something interesting?
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 picture of this item, see the What Is It? Blog. Good luck!
Update: the mystery object is a lid reformer, use to repair a damaged jar lid. Honestly, I have a few of these old zinc lids, and I can just imagine a world where one would have a special tool to repair them when they get bent instead of buying new jar lids every year like we do now. You can see a picture of it in action at the What Is It? blog. No one got it right this week; it was a hard one! The funniest answer came from Cori Philips, who said, "We see this every Thanksgiving at my house – It’s a ‘Mom plays favorites’ pumpkin pie slicer. I never got the good “half.” siiigh." That's good for a t-shirt from the NeatoShop! The rest of the answers are worth looking through, too. Thanks to everyone who played this week, and thanks to the What Is It? blog!
