What Is It? game 252

It's once again time for our collaboration with the wonderfully entertaining What Is It? Blog. Can you guess what the pictured item is? Or 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, see? May we suggest the Science T-Shirt, Funny T-Shirt and Artist-Designed T-Shirts?

See all this week's unlabeled objects at the What Is It? Blog. Good luck!

Update: Craig Clayton identified it as a spark plug, which is correct but not fully explanatory. Then JJUUSSTTIINN said these as "ninja rocks," which are broken ceramic spark plug parts used specifically to break windows. As it's a holiday weekend and Alex is feeling generous, both will win t-shirts! Learn more about ninja rocks at the What Is It? blog. The funniest answer came from Lori Cunningham, who told a Thanksgiving story:

The remnants of my grandmother's gravy boat, which I broke 20 years ago, but still hear about every-freakin-Thanksgiving when someone says, "Pass the gravy, please." At least that is what I think they are saying. I'm still at the kid's table.

So she wins a t-shirt, too! Thanks to everyone who played along, and thanks to the What Is It? blog.

Part of my broken glass/ceramic 20+ years collection to someday mosaic with. And yes, I've moved it to and from several houses and apartments over those 20+ years. No, I still do not know how to mosaic and I no longer care for the look.

Culturally, white is associated with holiness, goodness, purity and innocence.

I expect it to be a piece of modern art, expressing the end of innocence...

"ninja rock" very hard fragments of broken spark plug ceramic insulator, thrown at car windows to break them silently for burglary. Actually classified as burglary tools in some jurisdictions.
