There. Isn’t that beautiful? Well, I think so!
But what is it? That’s the question.
Well, I can tell you that the colour is a tad misleading, because it’s not really that silvery. In fact, it doesn’t look silver at all unless you shine a bright light on it, which, of course, is what happened here.
I can also tell you that it’s not something you’re ever likely to take away from the house until it’s ‘dead’. Too damn heavy, for one thing, and well, I can’t think of anything you’d use it for if you did. Of course, those of you who’ve watched ‘Chocolat’ might have some idea … but there are better, more lightweight, items which would work just as well for that, and anyway, you can’t exactly tuck this thing under your arm while you nip out. With my luck, I’d drop it and then it would most likely break.
You might like to know that it’s not squashed, and I’m guessing it’s about three x life-size.
Oh, and that dimple? That’s rather important. I probably wouldn’t have bought it if it hadn’t been for that dimple.
Answers in the comments, please, and the answer will be added at the bottom of this post tomorrow in the form of a link. I’ll do it nice and early so you can all get the answer quickly.
No cheating, now!
What – are you still here? You want more clues? Well alright … just one more.
If you fancy some less demanding macros, pop on over to Lisa for the rest of the Macro Monday contributions.
So, kudos to Granny Grimble, who guessed every part of this puzzle, right down to the brand name – well done, Granny! I think you can safely be named as this week’s winner!
Congratulations also to Silverback, Baino, Brinkbeestinenglish, Kala and Jama, all of whom guessed the item correctly. Mara get points for her convoluted thought processes, connecting Johnny Depp with Chocolat and griddlepans, and Silverback loses his place on the winners list for not knowing that cast iron will break if you drop it! There, that was fun, wasn’t it?
Thanks for playing everyone – you all make these puzzles work so well!
Update: Following an impassioned plea, I hereby reinstate Silverback on the winner’s rostrum, despite the fact that he said ‘It can’t be that’ in his comment. He’s right though, he did say ‘cast iron grill pan’, so even though I call them skillets, he’s back in the list of Right Guessers!
Granny Grimble is still the outright overall winner though. She got everything right, and didn’t do any pussyfootin’ backtracking.
