What is It? game 262

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?

Place your guess in the comment section. 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 more mystery items, go to What Is It? Blog. Good luck!

Update: the object is a saw toothed fireplace trammel for hanging pots over a fireplace from various heights. Read more about it at the What Is It? blog. The first to guess correctly was Edward Krakowiak, who wins a t-shirt from the NeatoShop! The funniest answer was from stephensmg, who said: "While scissors may not have been the best choice for Edward, The Inventor’s first choice was much worse." That's also good for a t-shirt! Thanks to everyone who played along this week, and watch this space for another What Is It? game!

"Doh!", (slaps forehead), "It's a pot hanger!" Which means something entirely different now that pot has been legalized in the State of Washington.

(I am giving the previous shirt won to a friend who has also read the Aubrey/Maturin novels)
