Welcome to What Is This Thing?, a photographic feature of a puzzling product I invite you to spend a minute or two pondering when your brain needs a break from pondering more critical life issues, like whether or not you should quit your job, how much longer you should wait before seeing a doctor about that Massachusetts-shaped freckle on your back, and who you should draft for your fantasy football team this year.

I picked the What Is This Thing? item above because I actually own one my mama gave me in my Christmas stocking 3 or 4 years ago. I had no idea what it was until she told me and, TBH, until I read the directions on Amazon today, I had no idea how to use it. Now though, mystery solved! Maybe I'll give it a try.

Or throw it back in the junk drawer.

Your hints on this bright, tubular piece of plastic are as follows:

  1. It isn't a toy.
  2. It is a standalone product, not a piece of something larger.
  3. It has a single, specific application.
  4. It comes in 4 different lengths.
