best from “what is it?” series
what is it?
There have been 18 editions of “what is it?” in 2006. I choose this particular edition because no one guessed it correctly and that always brings me great joy. Actually, Spudart guessed correctly, but changed his answer!
Guesses included webcam, espresso machine, clamping device, headphones, podcast microphone set, shoe shiner, car buffer, plasma torch, and the Hope Diamond.
2006 UNLIKELYMOOSE.COM POST OF THE YEAR

April 21, 2006
This post also received the most comments of all 2006 posts with 11 through 12/28/2006 (besides the 20-some posts that spudart left on my post about the world cup).
That’s right. The JL421 Badonkadonk Land Cruiser/Tank made it to the big time. This ultimate party machine would make for a great place to celebrate and bring in 2007 with a bang.
