What Is It? game 322

W00t! It's time for another collaboration with the awesome What Is It? Blog. Can you guess what this odd item is? This week, we are looking for funny and clever answers, not the correct one, but if you guess correctly, you'll win our undying respect. If you have one of the two funniest answers, you'll win a T-Shirt from the NeatoShop!

Place your guess in the comment section. One guess per comment, though you can enter as many guesses as you'd like. You have until the answer is revealed on the What Is It? Blog tomorrow.

You must 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.

There's another picture of this unidentified object at the What Is It? Blog, as well as other items to guess about. Good luck!

Update: the mystery item is a wire fence stretcher. However, we were looking for wrong but funny answers, and we got them! Patrick Scott 1 explained that it is a “Dharma Initiative plot perforator! More holes, more holes!” which is a reference to the TV show Lost. That wins him a t-shirt! Another t-shirt goes to ladybugs, who said it was “Jaws of Life used during medieval times to cut knights out of their armor after a horrendous battle." Congratulations! Thanks to everyone who played, and thanks to the What Is It? blog.

We call those a "Come-a-Long". It's for stretching the wire when constructing a barbed wire fence. You lay out your wire and then when you get to the last post you hook it up to that thing. Then you ratchet it tight, wrap the loose end around the post and nail it tight. After it's secure, you release the ratchet and attach the wire to all the smaller posts down the line. Repeat for the next strand.

It's a medieval back scratcher. It was really useful for knights who needed to scratch their backs while in full armor.

This is what enterprising blacksmiths gave their kids to play with in the good ol' frontier days. Instead of rolling a hoop with a stick, the kids would push this puppy around the yard. Served a dual purpose as a lawn aerator without the kids even knowing it.

Megatron's pocket knife takes the form of a buzzsaw, which he uses to open up small items like cars. This old rusty one was lost in battle. Peace through tyranny!
