I have the whole family guessing now. They are completely stumped, as am I. But my one son wants to guess a helium nozzle for filling balloons. Sounds good to me at this point.

Well, you're both right. Chansh has the broad guess, but sh0rt is definitely more accurate. While I give chansh props for being the first one to suggest its proper function, unless there are any hard feelings I'm tempted to give it to sh0rt because "nozzle" is kind of broad, and I already gave the hint that it expells something (which by definition makes it a nozzle of some kind).

However, no one has it yet. BTW, this is something that most (if not all) of us have seen at least a few times.

Not a hole in dishwashing foam or swiss cheese, but, like these other two items, it can be found in most homes.

That would be my guess, a mussel.

AirBrontosaurus
22nd of June 2006 (Thu), 00:48
not a muscle, and not cast iron. It is man made though.

I'll start with the hints tomorrow. Keep guessing!

I know what it is - it's disgusting.

My best guess is a piece of some fabric from a...something. Or some aquarium landscaping/decoration.

I really have no idea. It looks organic. And disgusting.

I am pretty tired and loopy today, but I see those fibers and think polyester type fiber. As of some sort of fabric-like compound. Specially the strands coming in from the lower right, seem to be tying it somewhere, so I sure hope is not an old teddy bear, or the end of a couch cushion or something like that. If so, it needs some serious cleaning...
