This is one of my favorite threads in quite a while.
It's like a magical feeding frenzy.

Wracking my brain to think of what this might be used for! The shape suggests it slides something out in an ergonomic manner, perhaps a card. But I honestly do not know what it is/does...

I thought I had a pretty good basic knowlege of magical apparatus, I guess it's not as good as I thought...

Tourist #1: What the heck is that?! [ squints ] What the heck is that? [ chuckling at himself ] What's that danged thing doing here! How did that get here? What the heck is that?! [ squints ] What the heck is that?! How'd that dang deal get here?! [ turns off-camera ] Hey! Come on over here and look at this deal!

[ Tourist #2 wanders onto the set to take a bewildered look ]

Tourist #2: What the heck is that?

Tourist #1: I don't know what the heck that is!

Tourist #2: What in the heck is that?!

Tourist #1: Hey, you kids! Get away from there!

Tourist #2: I would not mess with that thing..

Tourist #1: Don't put your lips on it!

Tourist #2: [ ever curious ] What the heck is this?

Tourist #1: Well.. get a photo of me with it, anyway!

[ Tourist #1 hands camera to Tourist #2, then walks away from camera view to have his picture taken ]

Tourist #2: Be careful with that thing. [ snaps Tourist #1's picture, as spark of ingenuity develops on his face ] Oh, I know what that is!

Tourist #1: [ returns next to Tourist #2 ] Well, what the heck is it?!

Tourist #2: [ looks closer ] What is that thing..?

Tourist #1: I don't even care what it is. [ pause ] What the heck is that?!

Tourist #2: I don't know what the heck that thing is.

Tourist #1: Oh, I know what it is!

Tourist #2: [ seeing it ] Oh, yeah.. oh yeah.. [ chuckles ]

[ Tourist #1 & #2 walk away from the stage. A beat, before their heads peer back into frame, more inquisitive than ever. ]

Tourist #1: What the heck was that?!

Poor, ignorant tourists. If only they had known it was too powerful for them to understand. Tsk, tsk, tsk.
My ex-cat was named "Muffin". "Vomit" would be a better name for her. AKA "The Evil Ball of Fur".

Josh,

At least give Steve Martin & Bill Murray their proper credit for the "tourist" bit.

At our club meeting on Thursday I used the photographs as a our monthly magic trivia question. Three people (four counting Payne) figured it out, but only one knew the correct name.

So, what is the correct name? I have an idea of what it is for, but I could be wrong.

There is nothing new on Jim's site that I can see. Its time to send this thread to the archives, nothing new here.

I'll give you a clue - an easy way to figure out exactly what this is. Simply make a list of what it isn't. What ever is left when you are done - that's it, simple process of elimination!

Well I'd like to say that I know what it is, because I think I do. I could very easily be wrong though. If they're what I think they are, I would love to have them.
