What it is? No. 3 Revealed

Did you play What is it? this time around? It was a fun one for sure. If you’ve never played What it is? before and want to understand what it’s all about, you can check out this post for details.

I’m wondering what the next one may be? Hmmm …  I’ll be thinking, but right now let’s get down to business and reveal the object for all to see.

What it is?!?

A good deal of entries were correct for this one. But many other popular answers are worth mentioning.

Some thought it was a snap. Is it a snap?


Is it a sterno can?

Nu-uh. Nope. Nada.

What about a paint can lid?

That would be a negative.

Got it yet?


It’s getting a little obvious, I think…

Yep. A plain ole battery. A D cell to be exact.

Well there you go. No complicated stuff here. Just simple every day items to baffle the mind.

The winner?

Okay. Here’s the winner…

Patrice who said…

“I think the picture is of the end of a battery. One end is flat and the other has the little knobby doodle-bob. I believe it is a knobby doodle-bob. (Also known as a thing-a-ma-giggy.) I am forever putting them in things the wrong way!!!”

Yeah, me too Patrice. I always seem to have to put them in the wrong way first. It’s a game I play with myself, I believe. At least that’s what I like to think.

Anyway, Congratulations Patrice! I’ll be contacting you about your gift card. So start planning what you may want to buy. Maybe you need to stock up on batteries?

Thanks everybody for playing! It’s so much fun to trick you all. Can’t wait until the next one.

    I’m in the snap category. Just knew I’d be right this time but NOPE! I really really wanted that gift card too. Well, I had fun trying so that counts for a lot. Do it again soon.

    I said snap and knew it was wrong. I’m hopeless at this game. I even asked a son to help – never mind the fact that he’s 8. Desperation leads you to do silly things sometimes.

    I’m ready for the next one! Hopeless or not, it’s fun.

    I was just strolling around the Blogosphere from JulieBug’s Place, and found you.
    What a great idea…What Is it ?
    And wouldn’t you know it…you posted something that in the title of my blog…an ANODE !
    The opposite end of that battery is the CATHODE

    I couldn’t figure out what it was and my 12 year old took one look and said it’s the positive end of a battery. I was never good at visualizing things.

    Wow! I’m so excited that I was correct, but I’m even more excited that I won something.

    Things that make you say “duh”. I thought it was the sterno lid, but couldn’t think of the name so didn’t play :)
