What Is It? Game 257

W00t! It's time for another collaboration with the always-excellent What Is It? blog. Can you guess what this strange object is used for?

Put your guess in the comment section below (click the +). One guess per comment, though you can enter as many guesses as you'd like. Please do not post any web link or URL - doing so will void your entry. You have until the answer is revealed on the What Is It? Blog tomorrow.

Two prizes: the first correct guess and the funniest yet wrong one will win a T-Shirt from the NeatoShop.

IMPORTANT: Please write your prize selection alongside your guess, so visit the NeatoShop and take a look around. If you don't write your prize selection, then you don't get the prize. I think you'll like the selection of funny t-shirts and science t-shirts -or even t-shirts of your favorite blogs and websites.

For an additional picture of this thing, go to What Is It? Blog. Good luck!

Update: the odd tool pictured is for cutting into grapefruit and removing the individual sections (patent number 2,637,899). Parrot Head was the first who knew the correct answer, and wins a t-shirt from the NeatoShop! Samantha Simons had the funniest answer: "It's the Queen of Heart's makeup trowel. She uses it to stamp on the hearts on her cheeks." That's clever enough for a t-shirt, too! Congratulations to the winners, and be sure to find out the answers to all the mystery items of the week at the What Is It? blog.

Yay!!! I was right! :-)

Mom had one of these for whenever she'd go on one of her "Diets" (which was the not-so-secret-code-word for "Run! Hide! Save yourself!!!")

So yeah, WAY cool that I recognized it! I knew that following Neatorama would pay-off at some point, right?!! :-D

I don't know if you are right but up to now this seems to be the most plausilbe solution...
I am looking forward to the posting of the solution tomorrow..
