This Friday I have a slightly odd looking object for you to identify:
It’s quite distinctive for those who’ve seen this sort of thing before, so to keep it fun for those who aren’t familiar please try to be a bit creative with your suggestions in the comments box below. Bonus points for anything that rhymes… have fun!
X marks the spot for what collected this lot.
From something off the ocean floor for when it needs to slam the door?
Not sure but I had both under my bed as a teenager at least twice! I was a messy rabbit 😉
Gives your engine serious puff, even when she’s running rough
I suspect you are here in fact showing us two different objects. While I have no idea what the first one might be, the second is easy: I just had one with my coffee. Compare the (well-baked) specimen of danish “snegl” (or “snail” to anglophones) at http://olivetoeat.com/?p=474 (second photo from top). The danishes there are all American danishes, but quite unusually for American danishes they look like Danish danishes. Take the word of a native of the land of Danish danishes: your specimen is severely overbaked or, just possibly, the result of interbreeding with a brownie that had white icing. If it is as overbaked as it looks, no Dane would eat it. In fact I would much sooner eat a garden variety American danish.
Quite apart from this snail business, I am glad I found your informative site. I came to it looking for a sane piece of writing on the Atacama skeleton, and I found what I was looking for. 🙂
Correction: the American danishes are in fact Canadian danishes.
One of my favourite answers ever!
