What is it? Number 2 in an occasional series...

So, this is the second in my occasional series of "What Is It?" The first was at the back end of January, so you get an idea of how occasional this series is. Grumpy Goat won the last one and so has a reputation to keep up! Lots of kudos on offer for the winner.

This one doesn't just come with photo's, it also comes with clues in the form of a description, so I guess it should really be called What is it for?, but it isn't!

So, without further ado, what is it?

What is it? 1

It is a blue rubber tube, about 7 to 8 cm long and about 2 to 3 cm in diameter.

What is it? 2

The tube is hollow, the rubber is soft and is about 1 to 2 mm thick.

What is it? 3

There is a pattern cut into each end.


Mrs DB brought it home and, upon being told what it was for, I just had to try it to see if it worked - it does, very well.

So, What Is It? or to be more exact, What Is It For?

It's a device for torturing Baggins.

Hush your mouth Keefieboy - that is a dreadful thing to say! As if I would torture Baggins - Mrs DB would kill me if I even thought about it!

LOL, I'm laughing already and I haven't even taken a guess. Poor Mr. Baggins.

I'll guess it's one of those things that takes skin off of garlic cloves.

I'd say something perverse but I assume it isn't.

so I guess its a hand warmer or napkin holder or something.

Pipped at the post by Californiakat! It's a Garlic peeler.
