Honestly, that isn't true.
Joan Tankersley said, "That isn't an antique.... that is a piece of Cher's costume circa 1987, probably from a Vegas show."
Well that isn't true either. But it sure made me laugh. Joan and Hasmin had the same wrong idea. Nevertheless, THANK YOU for the chuckle.
Jonathan, you made me say YUCK! Good guess, but so gross..."I think it is an external or internal truss to repair a hernia, in the day."
The guesses this time had my family and I laughing most the day. You guys are brilliant. Heck, I am going to find another weird thing in my mother's and Holly's shop just to see what you come up with.
Sharon's Turkey Plucker, fantastic!
Lizabeth's Chasity Belt... Hilarious as Cindy's Hawaiian Blanket, and Mahala's thong underwear, or as possible as Sue's medieval handkerchief, or GiGi's slinky answer.
Honestly you all did a fun job with your repsonses.
The winner of the correct answer is:
Nancy O. Was the first person to answer the guessing gmae correctly:
"It's a pot scrubber...my Grandmother used one much like this."
And though I loved many of your off the wall creative, and sometimes racy responses, I have to say the one I found most original was:
Cynthia Rieth's creative respose:
"Why its obvious its a child keeper - the mother put her fingers through 5 rings and all her little ones put their fingers through the other rings so they'd all stay together while they were out on their walks!"
Nancy and Cynthia please send me your address by email, so I can mail you a prize.
