Last Chance...

I've gotten some good guesses as to what this mysterious object is on my last post:


This is it- last chance!

A couple more hints:
  • Once properly installed (which it now is) it disappeared.
  • The black rubber ring around the nail in the center of the image is not essential to its function, nor does it interfere.
  • The object does not sit on the ground as shown in the photo above.
Have at it folks! Isn't this fun? Well, it is for me at least.

It looks like a hanger for something, but that would be too obvious!Hahahaha..ahhhh, Mark! I give up.

I re-read your post. It's not a hanger...arrgg

Actually it is a kind of hanger...

Okay - I wasn't looking closely enough - now that I've been squinting at the thing, in retrospect, a mail box was not such a good guess.

How about something to hang your keys on? (i.e. the keys on the nails)

You're a master at suspense!!!

Nice try- although I could appreciate this as a key hanger, from a dada/surrealist kinda perspective, my wife would kick me out of the house if I proposed we use it for that.

Does your wife approve of its use?

PS. This is the most action your blog has gotten in a while! Congrats!

markuza said...

Ha ha!! Yes, she does. Very much so.

BTW I've already written the 'solution' post, but I'm polling my Facebook friends for more answers, so once that dries up, I'll publish it and the mystery will be solved.

Hey Markuza, the guess I'd hazard is something fixed up to handle gatos? (grabbing electricity, not beat cats!)

Randolph- aha- I'm curious how that would work... but wouldn't that make it a kluge? Clearly you know something about Brazil if you know what a gato is!
