The mystery object competition

A quick fire photo quiz for you. What is this?





It's a present from Titian Red; that's all I'm saying.






First one with the right answer in the comments gets a fistful of Belgian easter goodness. Chocolate, I mean! Tsk.

holy tortoise's papal....hat? Catholic (Tortal) Nomenclature not my strong point...

monk said...

If I'm right I magnanimously pass on the chocolate to someone else. I eat enough of it as it is. Practically bathe in it.

Roshni Mitra Chintalapati said...

Egg warmer?!

Mya said...

A dinosaur egg cosy, perchance? A really weird sock? Posh sick-bag for when you're out at one of those elegant functions?I dunno. Give up. Utterly flummoxed with knobs on.

A HT (TM) mitre! FLIPPIN genius. LLGxx

fabhat said...

HT's mitre? Or a weepette easter bonnet?

Mrs Trefusis... said...

quite obviously it's the Holy Tortoises Mitre xx

Red Shoes said...

Hmm... The level of difficulty here is high. Petit four shaped pin cushion? Hm.. no, I don't think it's stuffed. I suspect that Roshni Mitra Chintalapati or LLG have gotten it right.

Layla said...

Oh, that is SO sad.

It's the Holy Tortoise's shroud.

You stood on him, didn't you?

Mud in the City said...

I'd have to go with an HT mitre - which appears to have been awarded a rosette for best in show.

Well done!

Was the weepette the runner up?

Wife in Hong Kong said...

Egg cosy that doubles up as the holy tortoise's mitre.

Sinda said...

It's quite obvious that you fasten it over the Weepette's snout, like a muzzle, to prevent him eating the HT, Tigers, shoes, caca, and anything else left lying around.

A Woman Of No Importance said...

Is it an elaborate codpiece to cloak the Weepette's modesty, JW, on high days and Holy Tortoise Days?

justme said...

It MUST be a hat for the weepette! He will look SO cute....pictures?

cantabfailure said...

Is it an award winning thimble?

Tea said...

A tortoise Queen of Springtime hat? That would need a magic wand that shoots daisies, though.

hairyfarmerfamily said...

I's an exceedingly bling peepee teepee?

Sewmouse said...

Easter Bonnet for easter eggs?

Jaywalker said...

I think I will string you along until tomorrow morning. Think of it like brain training, a la Nicole Kidman.

Cassandra said...

I think that it looks like a cosy for a Faberge egg.

Anonymous said...

I second the peepee teepee. Although I could see it being used as a mustache case.

wv droom: a lot like doom only dreamier?

monk said...

in fact, can peepee teepee just win anyway?

Titian red said...

A warmer for Weepettes privates ! Now that I hadn't thought of, could be adapted to become thong for weepette porn I suppose ?

livesbythewoods said...

Obviously a Vatican-approved condom. *tch* You can send the prizes to my usual address.

...fazzatog. Sounds like an evil German sprite.

katyboo1 said...

I believe the others were right with the Mitre thing. It is very, very cool. I love it.

littleanomaly said...

Willy Warmer?

Tea said...

Peter heater?

This game is fun!

Jaywalker said...

Ok. Time is up. You are full of dangerous creative energies and should take more lithium. Especially the ones with the pee tent.

As to the answer...

...

Holy Tortoise Mitre is correct!

Monk was first, but since she
1. Lives in Belgium;
2. Does not have the correct terminology; and
3 Has renounced her prize

the prize goes to Liberty London Girl. LLG I am thinking you would prefer English confectionery? Place your order by email.

Tea, what on earth is a peter heater?

mysterycreature said...

Yup, everyone must have got it right with Holy Tortoises Mitre!

Else it's a really odd hat!

Tea said...

Peter heater: see 'peepee teepee' and 'willy warmer'. Also, possibly the only way my father would describe something shaped like a Holy Tortoise Mitre.

It was a difficult week trying to get Dad to describe the cover for my saxophone's mouthpiece in any other way, way back in the sixth grade.

Despite much evidence to the contrary, I am a pretty thorough reader, yet I still read that this was a gift from Tara Reid. If only it were so...
