What is it?


Don't ask me, ask Rob, whose website, puzzlephotos.blogspot.com, features unusual objects that you're invited to guess the identity of.

He's been doing this since July, 2004, so there's plenty there in the archives for nights you can't sleep and need something to do.

My own "What is it" occasional feature pales by comparison.

Oh, sorry, forgot to mention - the ridges are for scraping it off your palate after an hour or so's chewing.

It's a mallet for tenderising elephant cheese. Elephant milk is very high in protein and very low in fat, so a really beefy mallet is needed to soften it before trying to eat it.

The odd wedge shape is so the cheese comes out in handy triangles to put on diagonally sliced toast. Why diagonally sliced? Because no gentleman would ever cut toast any other way.
