What Is It? game 298

Now it's time for our collaboration with the awesome What Is It? Blog! What is this thing? You don't have to know to win!

Place your guess in the comment section below. One guess per comment, please, though you can enter as many as you'd like. You might know the true answer, but we're going to select two winners who come up with the funniest, most outlandish guesses to win a T-shirt from the NeatoShop. However...

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 more pictures of this thing at the What Is It? Blog. Good luck!

Update: the mystery item is a bread slicer. Using a knife and this device you can make a 1/2" thick slice of bread into two 1/4" thick slices. Why you would ever want to do that is beyond me. But we were looking for funny answers and we got them!

Carlos Pfister had a funny one: "Thats a Decepticon Pop Tart. It transforms into a mean little bastard." Another good one came from mowog, who said: "It's a cheese 'Swisser.' Insert cheap, plain white cheese, puncture - PROFIT!" Both win a t-shirt from the NeatoShop for those answers! See the answers to all of this week's mystery objects at the What Is It? blog.

It's an antique Connect 4 game. The game pieces, usually hand-carved of old carrots and other bright root vegetables, have sadly been lost to time and decomposition (and bunnies).

Its a Cheese De-Grater. You insert grated cheese into the holes and opened it by pulling the top handgrips apart and presto, whole cheese. Never caught on though, inventor committed suicide.

It's a fax machine template from telegraph days. A document was inserted between the perforated plates, and then a stream of dots and dashes was transmitted in which a dark perforation was indicated by a "dot" and a white perforation was indicated by a "dash". The receiving station would then use a pencil to poke a hole through paper in the designated perforations of the plates, creating a 'negative' and very low-resolution image of the original document.

It's a Percy Pendleton's Premium Polka-Dotter (patent pending). One simply opens the device, puts in the polyester, percale, or poplin one is partial to, and proceeds to place the preferred pigment into the provided perforations!
