What is this?

Seriously. What IS this?
Some strange rubber thing…

My theories are as follows:
1) A kind of bizarre hand-bondage restraint.
2) A device used to purée heirloom potatoes.
3) The workplace favourite, the rubber-band slingshot, taken to logical extremes.
4) A bungie jump cord made by hamsters, for hamsters.
5) A specially balanced aid to allow for safer and more accurate ghost-riding of one’s whip.

You be the judge.

  1. Am I being a kill-joy if I call Cable-Tidy of some sort?

  2. Maybe it’s a bubble blower?

  3. I was thinking it was a flip of a hand exercise “thing” where instead of working on your grip, you would be working on your ability to open your hand. Maybe invented for politicians or the homeless. I hear the “Please, give me money!” motion can be quite stressful on your hands and can lead to injury.

  4. Honestly, I’d have said some form of gasket, had it not had all that excess material between the upper openings and the lower one…

  5. You know where my mind first went: Artic Husky sled…for midgets…or fairies.

  6. Numbers 1 and 5 seem to be the most logical to me. Other than those, some kind of weird hair-braid thingy?

  7. It’s the bungee cord portion of a Metolius Grip Saver Plus exercise ball. It’s used in rock climbing to exercise the opening of the hand. You work both sides so you can climb longer in a session.
    Anyways, linky;
