Mystery Object

Since Jayne seems to have run out of rusty old bits of junk at her place, here is a mystery object from me for you to have a guess at what it does.

Jayne is too kind and gives hints. I don't.

Apart from this object and some curious oddities to be found in my bedside cupboard, I don't have any other mystery objects, so give this one time your all.

S'pose I better tell you the size. It is about 8 inches or 20 centimetres long. The reverse side is just a screw head and and the rest of an address, Hue, Viet Nam.

Answer Tuesday morning if no one has guessed by then.


  1. It's a chinese version of the Nintendo...hours of fun for bored kids.

  2. A guide or measurer to use to draw perfect lines on paper...argh, who am i kidding, I have no idea.

  3. I'm stockpiling new bits of rusty junk to torment you with sometime in June next year, DrewAn :P

    It's a piece of dressed wood, about 8 inches or 20 centimetres long? :P

    Some sort of...thing...perhaps to whack unsuspecting knobsacks like Robbert Doyle over the head with.

  5. Good grief, 'glory hole' sounds so much simpler in English.

    On the other hand, Andrew Dearest, what's keeping your head on your shoulders now that you've taken the bolt out?

  6. it is a stick for hitting all the child pickpockets in Vietnam.

    S&M toy to be used on R?

  8. "This is one of the most famous food shops in Hue city. There are two floors here so you easily find your most suitable seat. The number of people visiting the shop is large so sometime the shop gets crowded. And foreigners really like it here because of the food quality, especially banh khoai".

    so its for hanging pancakes on?
    what happened to the missing screw?

  9. Nice work Ann. It is a restaurant where tourists get carted to and it was good and the object was a gift to us. Such a simple thing and look, generating publicity now some years later.
