Mystery Photo #82

I have a little bit of a dilemma this week.  Do I make the mystery photo difficult and risk somebody “getting back at me” (which was actually a good thing wasn’t it? LOL :)) or do I make it easy so that all of my blogging friends stay happy?  When I consider these two possibilities, all I keep thinking is that it wouldn’t be near as much fun if I made it easy because it’s when I post a tricky mystery photo that we all have the most fun with the comments going back and forth.  I don’t know about you, but it makes my Friday and keeps me smiling all day :).

So, hard it is!!  Show me watcha got?  Come on, you can do it – I know you can!   Ok, ready, set, go……

    It sure looks like the old fashioned pencil sharpener I used in school.

  2. Jen says:

    Yup. Looks like an old fashioned pencil sharpener to me too

    Good guess Andy.
    I wouldn’t have guessed myself, but now that Andy has mentioned the old-fashioned pencil sharpener (which I’ve used when young-er), I’ll have to agree.

    I’m with Andy.

  5. okay i did not look at anyone else’s answer–this is where I sharpen my eyeliner and eyebrown pencils but most people are dull and just sharpen their pencils here–

    Eeesh that is hard! I was going to go with a close up of an iron but what Andy says seems right, you can see bits of coloured pencil I believe?

    playin’ it safe huh Cindy? Good girl.. you know i am following your blog(discreetly .) i know what it is, but cannot reveal the answer til tomorrow…do not want to spoil it for everyone…haha

  8. I was trying to Figure it out before I
    looked at the comments. But I just couldn’t. You got me stumped but I agree with Sandy it looks like an old pencil sharpener.

    This I remember as if it was yesterday… school pencil sharpener…

  10. Funny story!!!! I just have to share this because normally I’m not really good with quick comebacks, but today I nailed it :). We have a pretty easygoing atmosphere here at work, and there is a lot of humour and sarcasm that goes back and forth between the girls and the boss. Well, the boss has been cranky as hell this week, and we’ve all pretty much had enough. So, this morning I told him that since he had been so cranky this week he should go buy us a treat from the doughnut shop. He said he couldn’t because he had clients coming in, and then he started to talk to me about a file he needed me to work on. Long story but during the conversation he called me a troll. That’s mean right? So, I walked away while he was still talking to me. Now, you have to know that he has a history of walking away while we are talking to him and it drives us crazy, so when he said “I wasn’t finished talking to you”, I said “Oh, do you like how that makes you feel?” LMAO!!!! Oh ya, chalk one up for me :). And yes, I still have my job.

    As soon as I saw the photo I thought “pencil sharpener,” mainly because of all the graphite marks around the edge… but then I thought, nah, too easy. But when I read the other comments I realized that is what it had to be.
    As for your boss, sometimes you have to risk speaking your mind in order to keep from screaming!

    Looks like an old dial telephone – missing the dials! On the other hand, you are too young to remember old dial phones. Hmmmmm. As usual, I don’t have a clue! 🙂 ~Dor

  13. J. G. Burdette says:

    Gonna go with pencil/crayon sharpner, as well.

  14. Sorry I’m late but we’re in Malta for the week and were travelling. I’m sticking with the consensus that it’s a pencil sharpener. Have a good week and good on ya for sticking it to the man.. xx

  15. Jeff Sinon says:

    I’m guessing pencil sharpener.

  16. benzeknees says:

    Is it a pencil sharpener? Whatever it is it’s very well used!

  17. ladyfi says:

    Nice image! I’m going with pencil sharpener too.

  18. Wow, and I thought this was going to be a hard one!! For everyone who said pencil sharpener, you are absolutely right. The law firm I work for has been in the same old, old building since the 60’s, and trust me not much has moved or changed inside since then LOL!! Great job everyone – you see, because I make the mystery photos hard you are all getting smarter and smarter each week :).

  19. hey, I like your analysis–whether it is true or not is another story

  20. zannyro says:

    Well “Duh”,,,I’m so STUPID!

  21. Just goes to show how different one person’s perception can be from another’s: you thought this object would be hard to identify, but most people (including me, I’ll add) recognized it right away.
