Wednesday’s “What is it?”

Happy hump day! Being that it is hump day, it is time for another installment of Wednesday’s “What is It?”.

I challenge you to guess what my picture is today. My hope is that this picture is a true challenge. I think it is a tough one. In fact, I think it is so tough, I am going to offer a prize to the first two folks that guess correctly.

The prize? I will donate $25 to a charity chosen by the first place winner in honor of that person, and I will donate $15 to a charity chosen by the second place winner in honor of that person.

So, what is it?  Leave a comment, letting me know what you think the photo shows, and please include the name of your preferred charity, in case you are the winner. I’ll tell you the answer in my post on Friday.  (If you click on the photo to enlarge it, you will need to use the back-arrow to return to the post.)

NOTE: I am making all comments ‘pending approval’, so everyone can guess on their own. Comments will be ‘released’ on Friday.


What is that thing

      1. Sorry *hangs head*
        For what it’s worth, I personally find it easier to figure out the picture when you post close-ups of mechanisms to something. It gives me something to go on: if I can figure out how the parts are working together, I can then narrow down the possible objects the mechanism belongs to. The one that stumped me was the bowling ball because there were only shapes and textures, no gears or levers. I kept thinking it was a child’s plastic toy of some kind but couldn’t narrow it down any further. And as it turns out, it wasn’t really plastic or for a child, so even that was off track. At least the toy idea was sort of right 🙂

    1. Patti, I love your guess, and technically, I suppose it is correct. Still, I’m afraid I cannot accept your answers as correct. Is it wrong that this fact makes me smile? *sigh* I was hoping to stump everyone. 🙂

    1. You know… you are not the first to say, “This is a tough one…” followed by “can opener”. I’m thinking it is not too tough. I’ll stump you yet!

  1. I was originally going to guess that it was the inner workings of a sewing machine – possibly an early model Husquarva – but upon closer inspection, I realized it was a can opener! Can opener is my final answer, Regis!

    1. Is it wrong that I wished you had gone with your first guess? *sigh* You guys are all so smart. Oh well, I must give you the credit you are due. Congrats, 1Pt. You guessed correctly.

  2. DUDE! I think I know it… but only because I’ve spent way too much time staring at my… CAN-OPENER! Am I right?! Am I?! (I’m actually feeling pretty good about this one, Ms. D… maybe!)

That was my thought on the matter. Your comment?
