What Is It? game 271

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 the other mystery items this week at the What Is It? Blog. Have fun and good luck!

Update: The mystery item is a mechanical pry tool that was used to free people who were trapped in cars before the jaws of life were invented. After studying the comments and collaborating with the powers that be, we have decided to award two prizes for the correct answer. Craig Clayton said it is a automotive tool to force open body panels. That's sort of right. Then The Jaws of Life for [ pick your favorite Kardashian ]'s pantyhose." That's sort of right, and funny, too! So both Craig and Jonnette win t-shirts from the NeatoShop! The prize for the funniest answer goes to The Professor, who said, "It's the remote control for a North Korean TV set." Alrighty then, that's good for a t-shirt as well! Thanks to everyone who played, and see the answers to the other mystery items of the week at the What Is It? blog.

Industrial Era 19th century clapping machine for genteel ladies - because banging your hands together was too "manly".

North Korean Thighmaster. This heavy-duty version is needed by the Dear Leader, whose mighty thighs contain all the strength and power of a small fishing village.

It's a 'bumper-outer' tool for pushing the dents out of car doors. The other half of the tool - which was confiscated - oops, I mean it's 'just missing' in this photo - is an 'inner-dimpler' for people who prefer more car dents than less or want to make extra claims on their insurance policies...

To me, it looks like a foot pedal. Like an emergency-break or clutch pedal for some sort of machinery.
