    What is it?

    I found this a few days ago at my uncles house. I remember playing with these things 50 years ago. This is a small one about 14" long and is made of lead and brass.

    He had some that were 8 to 10 feet and longer. It is hollow and if you take it apart you can see the brass innards. The wire can be moved up and down to adjust it.



    The first person to guess correctly wins a free roll of toilet paper but you have to pay the shipping.

    Interesting Hills. That's your third reference to butt plugs in the last couple of weeks. I'm not implying anything, just making an observation.

    I will say this. If you were to try and use this as a BP and you accidentally, or on purpose passed gas, this thing would make a noise.

    There's your hint.

    First of all... lol

    Second of all.... that hint leads me to believe it may be some sort of steam whistle? Like off an old train or something?

    Not a steam whistle or anything off a train but you're getting warm.

    Whoa hoss .... that ain't me ! It's all ChildhoodDream's fault. He's the one who stated the whole butt plug thing.
    I just ran with it.

    I think i know but don't want to ruin the fun just yet.

    Is it a cowbell butt plug ? They pass so much methane gas it's destroying the ozone layer.

    Something like the blue flame special on the exhaust end ?

    Light em' up and it's all hooves and horns flying across the barnyard ?

    Hills it's funny you should mention cows and methane. Remember the great Chicago fire. I believe they blamed it on an accidental fire in Mrs. O'leary's barn, but this is what really happened.

    Imangine if you will a hairy guy in his underware lighting his first fart on fire with a BIC and finding out that hair burns once it's ignited and has enough air to breath.

    I saw such a guy dancing around in his underware trying to put the fire out as he was very hairy high and low...

    It was the hardest I have ever laughed in my Life up to now.

    Was a sight I can still see in my mind.

    A bit like the monkey pulling the plug out of the pigs butt, joke.

    I googled the joke because I've never heard it before. Funniest thing I've read in a long time. My sides are hurting something awful!

    ChildhoodDream, I'm glad you're back.
