A little quiz

Today, it’s just a “What am I” photo. Let’s see who recognises this immediately. As usual, no prizes from the skinflint. (*)


(*) Skinflint: a niggardly person; miser

Origin of skinflint:  from thieves’ slang: literally , one who would skin (that is, chip or abrade) a worn flint rather than pay for a new one

    What do you mean, I had half the answer?! I had ALL the answer! It was obviously something covered in hoar frost. The point of the quiz was to say what the something was. I demand a recount! 🙂

  3. Oh man, I was going to play the game and then there was the answer right at the top of the list. Who am I kidding, I didn’t have a clue except for the icy coating which looks quite pretty.

  5. Given whatever it is is clearly ice/snow coated how on earth am I supposed to know? Some of us are geographically weather disadvantaged, you know.

  11. OMG!!!! It’s so obvious! I’m kicking myself that I didn’t get it immediately! For a while it was driving me crazy…

  12. It’s a slipper with a champagne cork creatively attached to it, left out in the frost 🙂

  13. Non lo so.
    Actually my first thought was a wood plane (for working on gondolas) that had been left outside to be covered with some type of frost but then again the shape was just not quite right.

  14. I know what it is, and I’m not telling ‘cos I don’t want to ruin the fun and appear to be a know-all.

  16. It’s the gear-shift mount from an unfortunate Fiat, tossed several meters from the auto demolished in a terrible accident, and now resting in the snow.

  17. I think it’s a hairy vampire slipper that has just been staked or a frosty thing on a boat. Do I win ? 😀 ❤

  18. No idea. I thought at first that it was a shoe shaper in a shoe that had been left out in the frost, but I think not.
