A Quiz Topic - Strange Dachshund Dog?
« on: May 24, 2010, 09:38:01 PM »
I picked this up the other day and wondered if anyone can guess what it is? I do know, but it has quite a strange use! Just 9cm long.

My first thought was a urinal although the size and positioning of the opening doesn't seem quite right  :spls:

Carolyn: Nope, but I see your train of thought.
Keith: Only if you put it somewhere you shouldn't!
Anik: It is very small...  ;)

It is a hollow vessel with a tube on top. The 'head' of the 'dog' does have a small aperture. This is the part that might give a clue: the shape and size of the 'head'.

A fruit-fly trap? (too small for wasps)

I think it might be a water container/dispenser for a small rodent cage.

Not a fly trap - the aperture is only about 7mm diameter - nor a water dispenser for rodents. Good guesses though!

But it is intended to hold water and dispense it, but not for drinking.

It's a thingy for watering your plants slowly while you're away on holiday.

Nope. But I'll give the answer this evening.

I stand corrected. Interesting to know that a mouse can squeeze through a gap no wider than a pencil...

A pipe?   

One of those *BAD* pipes for smoking Wacky Tobacco? Just a guess here, as I only ever tried in once (honest) in my life.  Was not for me................but that is my guess. 

I dunno......
