Quiz Tuesday part 30


This might very well be my last quiz, so I'm making it nice and easy. Hope you enjoyed them as much as I enjoyed your loopy guesses and comments ;-) As always, thanks for playing along...

If you ever miss Quiz Tuesday (hey, it could happen!) you can stroll down the memory lane, by clicking "quiz" under the post labels.

Today's question: What the heck is it? How is it used?

And here's the answer:

on dirait une tete d'alligator et elle sert de heurtoir à une porte. pourquoi le dernier jeux ? et nous on va devenir quoi le Mardi sans les jeux de tata isabella ? ;o)

one would say a head of alligator and it is used as stop with a door. why last plays? and us one will become what Tuesday without the plays of tata isabella? ;o)

OMG!!!! WHAT HAVE YOU DONE WITH AL???

Peter said...

I first thought of something to eat (although it does not look that appetizing), but then I discovered what seems to be a screw under the "eyes"...which would be difficult to digest.

Don't know, but there is of course something reminding of an alligator...?

Will be back tomorrow, when I suppose that the answer will be there.

Oh easy... It's a wig. Used by seminole indians in their Second Seminole War from 1835 to 1842.

State that why the last quiz? Please more more, we love them !!!

The last quiz?! You are my reason for living on a Tuesday! This morning I had no internet connection for four hours and what did I think about? Isabella's quiz. See what I mean.

As for this quiz, at first I thought it was some sort of fruit confit - now I've decided it's a door knocker for people with questionable taste.

As usual, I can't wait for the answer.

Have to admit I have no idea what it's used for. So I googled "alligator head" and can't believe what came up. Check out the 1st listing. And I still have no idea how it's used!

It must be a place for a lady to hang her hairpiece. Or it could be a place to put on a bra to see how it looks. I notice two spots there that would fit the area normally covered by a bra. But I will guess a place to put a hairpiece or wig.

I have no idea - maybe an ugly door knocker?
What's up? I hope nothing is wrong.

Frank said...

Did someone forget their pooper-scooper?
I have a question for you: "Why is this the last Tuesday for quizzes?"

Lavenderlady said...

well, I think it is a pertrified alligator head coated with some goop to make it burn...like a tiki torch. How's that for off the wall?

Nikon said...

Yeah, I change my guess to an alligator head but I don't know what you would use it for.

Victoria said...

Last quiz? Say it isn't so!

Anyway, that looks like a shrunken alligator head being used as a door knob? A cane top? Hat rack? Key holder?

Mandy said...

I thought it might be something you poked in the water to tease the alligator with.

Kate said...

I think that you rotated the photo to make it more difficult. It's something to eat, altho it's not that appetizing. Might be a fig? Or who said an alligator??

Kate said...

Yea, it's an alligator head. Use: doorstop, door knocker, Halloweeen mask? Isabella, you can get business cards with an alligator head as its design--one a little more attractive than this one.

Rauf said...

i know what it is and i win.
Its a nose cleaner. you shove it in to the nostril and rotate. Not good using the same one on the other nostril, it is better to throw this one and shove a fresh one into the other nostril.

poody said...

Looks like a sapped up alligator head but not really sure what itis??It is not too pretty whatever it is!

Sonia said...

Looks like an alligator head (mummy). I can see some teethes on the right top of the head. Ah! Sure,look at this green eye with the transversely iris. I will be back tomorrow!

Your punishment will be so severe, President Bush will have to pardon you.

Three cheers for Olivier - he was the first to guess correctly!
Hip-Hip-Hooray!
Those are (rather hideous) door knobs at a new establishment, currently being built. Can't say for sure, but it looks like a bar...

Most of your comments were hilarious, but I guess we all agree that Rauf's tops them all (and not in the pretty way ;-))

Thanks to all for playing along...

Door knobs? You got to be kidding.

Ugh.
