WIIF #55

Beccadink took out the trash last week. And it's a good thing... It was starting to stink!

Here is What Is It Friday? #55



sandgroper just about popped the lid on this weeks "WIIF?" but blondkit10 took the pain away. No more sleepless nights thinking about THIS headache ;)



The fine print: On Fridays I will post an image in hopes that visitors will leave a guess in the comment section. The following Friday (or when someone guesses correctly) I will post a wide shot of the item. Each Friday a NEW image, along with a link to the previous weeks post, will be posted.

I said last week I'd be here early on Friday - is this too early:) I'm going to take a guess and say this is a lobster buoy or nautical float - you were by the water yesterday.

byalip said...

It's one of those thingys that's soldered into a circuit board that has little wired going in and out of it. I'm not sure if you call it a capacitor or not. Whatever...my guess is that it's definitely electronic.

blondkit10 said...

Is it a pencil?

b13 said...

If the image is up it is not too early ;)
Three guesses that range all over the spectrum!

It is not a lobster buoy or nautical float. And I'm on Long Island... I'm surrounded by water. ;)

It is not a capacitor or electronic.

And it is not a pencil.

Keep the guesses coming! :)

BeccaDink said...

All I got right now is that the base is something metalic with the red and blue latex type paint on either end.

Laura said...

WOW. This one is hard!

b13 said...

hmmm... I'm interested to see where Becca goes with this one ;)

byalip said...

Is it markings on an agility jump?

b13 said...

hahaha... nope.

Laura said...

Tube slide at a playground?

BeccaDink said...

So does that mean my guess so far is right? :)

b13 said...

Nope.

And nope (I'm just interested to see where your thoughts lead).

And hints won't start coming until at least tomorrow ;)

Heidi said...

It is part of a bicycle? You know... like the bar parts of it?

b13 said...

Nope.

Laura said...

Rubber bouncy ball?

I hope we get more than 1 guess!!

BeccaDink said...

Laura - you should have seen the WIIF#50 - I think we all guessed like 100 times - and then the rubber band week we all guess a ton.

b13 said...

That's it, Laura has used up all her guesses :P jk

Not a ball though.

b13 said...

oh, and not rubber or bouncy... don't want to mislead the players :)

Laura said...

I thought there were NO hints???

Laura said...

OH I see the light now..

b13 said...

If there are a few aspects to a guess I tend to yes or no each aspect.

rubber = no

rubber bouncy ball

rubber=no
bouncy=no
ball=no

A hint would be "I gotta make a note of that!" (and no, that does not pertain to this image... I used it because "pencil" was already guessed) ;)

Laura said...

Part of a faucet that shows you which way to turn for hot/cold water?
I know that one is a stretch.

byalip said...

Is it reflective tape? If so, is it something to warn traffic or people on foot?

blondkit10 said...

It kind of looks like it's made of Styrofoam to me. With bands of red and blue paint or plastic around it. It also looks round and tube like. Hmmmm tough one.

Is it a bicycle helmet?

b13 said...

ooh! I like Laura's last guess. It's incorrect, but it is interesting what certain colors will make people think about.

It is not reflective tape.

b13 said...

Not styrofoam or plastic and not a bike helmet.

BeccaDink said...

I'm just holding back to give others a chance at guessing. . .

Just kidding - I'm SOOO stumped!!

byalip said...

I'm getting that "styrofoam" thing too, blondkit. Whatever this is, it looks like it's applied or stuck on to something.

BeccaDink said...

It's almost as if it's been dipped in wax

Laura said...

This is a HUGE stretch - but a rodeo barrel?

Ribbon candy!!!

b13 said...

It always comes down to some sort of candy or food with all of you ;) but no.

Carletta said...

Ok - I went grocery shopping and came back to lots of stuff. The blue color isn't typically the right color blue; but I'm going to make another guess that's it a barber's pole.

b13 said...

Carletta was on the right track... then made a drastic wrong turn.

byalip said...

A bumper sticker...

Maybe it's a flag.

Maybe it's a US flag bumper sticker

b13 said...

nope

blondkit10 said...

A bag of Wonder Bread?

b13 said...

LOL no.

BeccaDink said...

This has gotta be some kind of record for guesses the first day!!!!

Carletta said...

Let's see if I can make a "right turn" this time:)
Is it an Interstate Traffic Sign.
and...is anybody getting any work done:)

b13 said...

no, and I'm trying ;)

byalip said...

Work is at a standstill.

More importantly, is it a fishing lure?

b13 said...

nope

Anonymous said...

I'm not even waiting to hear that my last guess was wrong.

Is it ribbon?

b13 said...

too late... and nope.

byalip said...

Now I'm really grasping....

Band from a Swatch watch?

byalip said...

Candy wrapper!

I'm only guessing this cause I know my last one is wrong.

b13 said...

HAHAHA, no and no.

I would guess but I'm stumped... except to say I don't think we have those in Oz! :p

BeccaDink said...

I know this is a stretch and two completely different things - but

A pogo stick
or
A painted fingernail?

It's really sad when I'm dreaming about what it could be. :)

byalip said...

Can you tell us if it's part of a car...or goes on a car?

Laura said...

I am with you,Becca. I laid in bed last night thinking.IT is very frustrating!

Is is one of those metal umbrellas like you find at carnivals or dairy queen? OR is it a hand rail?
Or a pipe from a 'gas meter'?

Laura said...

Did anyone guess a candle?

Carletta said...

Is it the side of a phone booth or fire hydrant? I know it's on the street - isn't it?

b13 said...

Is it tomorrow over there yet?? it is and I have a headache.

I don't think we have those in Oz? I think you do.

A pogo stick? nope

A painted fingernail? nope

Can you tell us if it's part of a car...or goes on a car? Yes, I can and no, it is not... and no, it does not.

Is is one of those metal umbrellas like you find at carnivals or dairy queen? Nope

Did anyone guess a candle? That was a few weeks ago...not this time.

or fire hydrant? Nope.

Ms. A said...

Is it a funky paint job on a mailbox, motorcycle or boat?

Carletta said...

Is is a service medal?

byalip said...

A leftover Christmas ornament?

A magic wand?

A twirling baton?

Whatever it is, it looks kinda festive with that sparkly white/silver in the middle.

Please help put us out of our misery and grant a hint!

byalip said...

A lipstick tube?

Part of a trophy?

We've gotta get this solved before another fitful night of sleeplessness!!!!!!!!!!!!

Irritating, isn't it? Or maybe not.

Carletta said...

Is it a pair of 3D glasses?

sandgroper said...

Something for your headache??

Or perhaps something that caused it?

or am I barking up the wrong tree? ;)

blondkit10 said...

Is it a closeup of a gelcap (Tylenol?) Or maybe just the bottle it came it?

byalip said...

I thought it might be some kind of pill, too. If it is, it's kinda patriotic (colors).

But my first guess of the day is a drinking straw.

b13 said...

sandgroper said...Something for your headache?? And was on the right track...

But blondkit10 nailed it exactly!
It is a closeup of a Tylenol rapid release gelcap.
