What Is It? game 253

Here it is, our collaboration with the always amusing What Is It? Blog! Tell us what this object is, if you know. If you don't, make 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. We'll have 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?

Check out additional pictures at the What Is It? Blog. Have fun and good luck!

Update: the mystery object is an old depth gauge, "for sounding in depths of from one hundred fathoms." Read more about it at the What Is It? blog. No one guessed that! For a minute I thought  Lord_Dissident was going to have the correct answer:

There is some sort of plastic can in the weathered remains of a wooden cabinet, a clock or something leaning on the side, and a large metal plunger on top of it all. Synopsis: it's a pile of rubbish sitting outside with a man (whose shadow can be seen in the grass) hovering over it.

Well, no, but that one was the funniest answer, so he wins a t-shirt from the NeatoShop! Here's a little hint for the rest of you: the What Is It blog often posts the answer before we do, in case you want to look there when no one has it right. Thanks to everyone who played this week!


Van Helsing’s custom made silver „stick grenade“ especcially designed to be used against packs of wherewulfs...

The head includes the explosive, the bottom cap is for protecting the pull cord to activate the fuse, and the blade springs serve to securely store them within a tubular transport case...

It has been developed from the a prototype known as Holy Hand Grenade of Antioch known form Monty Python and the Holy Grail..

It was too expensive for usual packs of wherewulfs and not suitable for mass production...

Even the introduction of the silver stig grandase was not able to end „Twilight“ early enough...

This would be an Vespa Tire Jack, so when you get stuck on the road with a flat tire on your vespa, this allows you to single handly chage you tire, you know that spare tire you keep on the back of the vespa under you pizza delivy box.

This is a high end espresso preparation device. The platinum tamper is shown at center. When dropped from 6” onto the grounds (use the measuring device secreted in the handle), it will perfectly tamp coffee grounds which have been previously passed through the number 1 screen, and caught on the number 2 screen. The brass carrying case for the screens is visible at bottom right. This screening assures sufficient grind while allowing the fines to pass through, eliminating the goaty flavor present in so many randomly ground coffees. The ceramic housing for the grinding apparatus is visible in the box, but the platinum burrs do not appear to be present. This set also includes coffee filters (in box) hand made from the pulp of wild-sourced tupelo trees not less than 75 years old. Based on the condition of the tupelo wood carrying case, and the design of the tamper, I’d estimate this set is at least 75 years old, with an estimated value of $1325.

Clown nose plunger. It is used to reshape the nose back to it's bulbous form after it has been flattened by someone with coulrophobia (a fear of clowns).

This is a prototype Dune Thumper device. Since the world is going to poo in a hand basket and global warming is definitely going to turn our planet into a desert fit for enormous earth worms scientists have needed to think ahead.

It's clearly a belly-piercing bar for, shall we say, those of a larger build than usual?

Prototype of a shake-weight.

Though, I'd be careful with something like that, a smack to the face from the end would break a few teeth.

I believe it is a antique fire nozzle that is used to FOG the fire,therefore it is known as a fogger nozzle. This is why it has a cover cap on the inlet end of the parallel threaded end. They were not widely used at the time.

This is the baton of the Head Drum Major of the Steroid-Stoners Drum and Bugle Corp.

Not only does this 25 lbs mace work your pec's and delt's as you twirl it in the parade, but its got a secret screw down lid for "hemp storage".
