Mystery object

Mystery_Object

What's this?

Today, I have a little mystery for you to solve! I know, I know – you really are very grateful to me for jumpstarting your grey cells, right?

See that mysterious object? No, not the number 15. A bit lower…

Not that low… that’s actually the neighbours’ garden rubbish if you must know.

Think vertical! See that object dangling from the number 15 – the object with the two grey handles sticking out of it? Yes – that one!

Here’s the puzzler of the day: What is this weird object?

If you guess correctly, then your reward is a raised eyebrow and a big packet of cosmic cookies.

  1. Hmmm…..I would guess that it is something that you use to grab high things…..what those things may be I have no idea!!

    There is an award for you over at mine :-)

  2. Well, duh, it’s a divining rod that you use to find water, which is very scarce where you live.

  3. My guess would be a trash picker but i’m weird like that.

    My guess is that it’s a tool for for pulling up dandelions. I’ve never seen one with the double handles before, but it’s about the right length anyway :-p

  5. I think it is a bug squasher…. no need to bend over to smush that bug…just get him with this!

    SirPe, How big are your dandelions?? do you live in giant land or something?

  7. A very large pencil with safety handles.

  8. it’s a slangbella or a huge double straw for drinking!

    May 14, 2009 at 11:59

  9. nonono I didn’t mean slangbella, slingshot, I meant…. slagruta? the thing you use to look for water and gemstones.

  10. MT: You’re thinking of a divining rod.

  11. I’m thinking of a whole lot of other things than how to hang my photographs :-D Why’d you have to post such strange photos – why, I ask you, whyyy? ;-)

  12. It’s a nail puller. For pulling nails that are very, very far away, or that are close to something smelly.

  13. I haven’t a clue.

    I’d guess a diving rod, too. I always thought they were made of wood, though….

    That must be one of those new-fangled magic water finder things. ;)

  15. I think it is a kind of tool used to pluck some fruits? Maybe one part of the other end is missing. Make sense? lol

    May 14, 2009 at 13:46

  16. That, I guess is a moper or duster, the one used to clean floor.
    You can have a good laugh if I am ridiculously wrong. :)

    May 14, 2009 at 13:54

  17. A tool to take your boots off? A gutter cleaner? A sanitary hand-shaker to ward off flu germs?

    May 14, 2009 at 14:27

  18. It looks a little like my Reacher, for grabbing things from the top shelf

    May 14, 2009 at 14:58

  19. Oh per-lease! Don’t you know I’m not well?!

    OK then, is a skipping rope with an erection?

    I told you I wasn’t well. ;-)

    May 14, 2009 at 15:06

  20. Jump rope?

    May 14, 2009 at 17:19

  21. Oh the possibilities, a rubbish holder downer..oh no that would be TOO obvious. How about a feeble looking walker for a feeble person..maybe on ice. Some kind of a duster or cleaner that is naked..as in missing the actual duster or cleaning parts. I can’t wait to find out! :)

  22. Shell

    Tree pruning clippers, I reckon.

    It’s feet for a very tall Mr Potato Head.

    May 14, 2009 at 18:27

  24. what she said.

    May 14, 2009 at 18:41

  25. Po

    Is is, a leaf picker upper, a rubbish picker upper, a back scratcher, a nose picker??

    May 14, 2009 at 19:18

  26. It’s for handling venomous snakes, of course!

    May 14, 2009 at 21:29

  27. Hmm. I’m stumped. I can only guess the utility in this contraption lies in the tripod-y thing at the bottom.

    May 14, 2009 at 23:35

  28. It’s a walking stick with two floppy gray feet.

    May 14, 2009 at 23:52

  29. I think it’s a jump rope. But that can’t be right. It’s a hooky thing, to grab or hook something. A hooky thing.

    The great big fuzzy thing in the second photo, was a poppy.

    Don’t have a clue what that thing is.

    Looks like something with which to pin down a snake!

    May 15, 2009 at 09:10

  34. It’s a snake catcher.

    Oh ok I read today’s post :))) lol…

  35. Yes, I’ve already seen the answer but my first guess would have been something like an IUD for an elephant. What?
