WHATZIT #19

There are many things that are notzit.
The query now, to you, is whatzit?

J9 knows gators! She knows grits!

She gives these whatzit games a fit.

She knows her rocks and knows her vines.

She even knows SEA URCHIN SPINES!

  1. Can you hear my agonizing moans,
    To think that you would call them stones.
    Another guess, you must consider
    If you're to be a homerun hitter.

  2. I agree with Noe Noe - they DO look nasty! I am going to guess they are earthworms!

    ReplyDelete
  3. It cannot be earthworm.
    Earthworms slither and squirm.

    ReplyDelete
  4. It is not a baseball bat,
    nor, is it something left from a rat.

    ReplyDelete
  5. They look shiny and polished
    Each encircled with bars
    Perhaps Noe Noe is right
    In assuming cigars.

    Can they be eaten
    Or are they for show?
    My next guess is sausage -
    Let's give that a go!

    ReplyDelete
  6. They cannot be eaten and cannot be smoked.
    My giving of hints will, now, be invoked.
    To find them, if I had the notion,
    I might, possibly, look in the ocean.

    ReplyDelete
  7. I must now go to earn a living.
    Later today, more hints I'll be giving.
    You may just figure it out.
    You two are a team. There is no doubt.

  8. Noe Noe stole my answer! AGAIN!

    ReplyDelete
  9. Sea Shells? No,no,
    Audrey and Noe Noe.

  10. This final hint I give before I depart,
    Because you are both close to my heart.
    Living in the ocean is a real test,
    That is one part, and this is the rest.
    To figure this out you must be clever.
    But, even if you are it might be never.

    ReplyDelete
  11. Oh! And by the way,
    What did the post of this whatzit say!
    "Please post an answer on my blog.
    It's neither a SEA SHELL nor a frog."

    ReplyDelete
  12. OK now I throw my hat into the ring
    i will guess that this thing
    it a seed pod of the mangrove
    I've seen them floating all over the cove

    ReplyDelete
  13. Our day's complete! J9's here!
    But, you are also wrong, my dear.
    If you want to be the very best,
    You must study for the test.

    ReplyDelete
  14. Noe, Noe, your answer has no scrupples.
    You must also become a pupil.
    Pay close attention to the whatzit hints,
    That tell of these and where they went.

    ReplyDelete
  15. I'll try again at this whatzit of ills
    is it swordfish bills?

    ReplyDelete
  16. Is it some sort of fishing tackle/bait??

    ReplyDelete
  17. Would I perhaps be in the park
    If I guessed the teeth of a shark?

    ReplyDelete
  18. "A real test"...it is some kind of "testicle." Eeeewwwww Gordon! That is GROSS!

    ReplyDelete
  19. Tentacles are my next guess
    4 of 8, or a squid's is my next best
    it could also be a fish of jelly
    lost to you in feeding it's belly

    ReplyDelete
  20. So comical these guesses and strange notions!
    Where could you take a test in the ocean?
    I keep saying these hints are the keys.
    If you take the test, you will also take these.

    ReplyDelete
  21. Let me repeat my clue fro before:
    "Living in the ocean is a real test.
    That is one part, and this is the rest."

    ReplyDelete
  22. Tests are for schools
    and schools are for fish
    so now we have an unedible dish
    the other place to take a test I reckon
    is Aquarius research station

    ReplyDelete
  23. A test is a test is a test!

    ReplyDelete
  24. And it also depends on how the word "take" is used.

    ReplyDelete
  25. You would test the depth of the ocean - is this something for measuring ocean depth???

    ReplyDelete
  26. You must expand your knowledge of test.

    ReplyDelete
  27. And, you would do sysmographic testing. Am I close?

    ReplyDelete
  28. That last clue was best by far
    I now think this is a star
    The kind that lives in the sea
    and is also a type of "fish" we see.
    For those looking for definition:
    the hard, protective shell or covering of certain invertebrates, as echinoderms or tunicates (starfish)

    ReplyDelete
  29. J9 you are working very hard.
    But you are only in the yard.
    You must learn a little more
    To throw open the door.

    ReplyDelete
  30. I never said these were the test.
    If you find the test, you will find these.

    ReplyDelete
  31. You may find a test or a star.
    When you find the right test, you'll know where you are.

    ReplyDelete
  32. I have observed many, many times,
    That these functioned as wind chimes.

    ReplyDelete
  33. There are many ways to rend it.
    It might even be a beautiful pendant.

    ReplyDelete
  34. Many night lights are made from the test.
    The color of these are really the best!

    ReplyDelete
  35. Interject if I could, perhaps driftwood?

    ReplyDelete
  36. Whatzit tests are not for the feint of heart.
    Sometimes you work to do your part.
    To pass this little test of mine.
    You'll certainly have to have a spine.

    ReplyDelete
  37. Kim, thanks for dropping in.
    But, your guess just will not win.

    ReplyDelete
  38. Aha - not stars at all
    a close relative for where it falls
    Sea Urchin Spines I can atest
    I should have known these best
    Ashamed to say I am a diver
    and these hadn't crossed my mind either!

    ReplyDelete
  39. Surely there is out there, now.
    A shooter who will soon avow,
    To what these little whatzits are.
    This can't continue to go on very far.
    My fingers are getting bruises and dents,
    From typing all of these wonderful hints.

    ReplyDelete
  40. Gordon, you can't be serious
    These must be urchin spines
    if not I'm curious.

    ReplyDelete
  41. My google search turned up this:
    http://gardennoise.com/sea%20urchin%20spine.jpg
    for sure I thought I'd had you best!

    ReplyDelete
  42. J9, the diver, wins the marathon.
    I'm very sorry this can't go on .
    I hope this has been an educational game.
    If not it's been fun, just the same.
    Google urchins, tests and spines.
    To see these beauties, all, divine.
    The whatzits spines were in my drawer.
    But, look them up, and you'll see more.

    ReplyDelete
  43. J9, keep you answered as I was typing.
    So don't go ventilating and hyping!
    You clicked your comment before I clicked mine. I knew it was only a matter of time.
    Without you here to keep me strait,
    This whatzit game would not be great.

    ReplyDelete
  44. I love the whatzit game - even though I am not that good at it!

    Whatzit next, Gordon?
