Though this person was close (he missed the third question),
Here's the email he sent us:
1. Itís a collection of loomnum foil
(Datís in Germany, so I donít know if you wanna call me

This guy's got a lot of talent! He cracked us up with
his series of crazy, inventive answers.
- I now think itís an elk clonker.
- I wanna change my mind again. I know what it is for
sure this time. Itís a fossil snowmobile piston. It was found by Dr. Leakey
at an undisclosed fossil bed somewhere in the U.P. Itís part of an ongoing
project to determine the earliest use of a snowmobile by early humans as
they stalked the woolly mammoth. I hear that the pictured piston fossil
is tentatively dated at between 11,000,000 and 25 years old.
- I wanna guess again, is that okay?
These contestants were real close, but most forgot the
"where it came from" part.

Here's some humorous answers we received:
- Lost filling from ex-wifes right molar (yeah, she's
got a pretty big trap).
- Sinker for Paul Buyans fishing pole
-Da ole ladie's left-overs
- A hunk a lead to keep the beer cooler from floating
- Bullet projectile from Big Ernie
-Dis is Toivo's tooth filling collection
- A mass of toilet paper painted silver
- 1922 olympics shot-put thrown by Ano Maki
- The cremated remains of Uncle Ole (family always
said he had lead in his ass).
- Petrified piece of poop from out-house
- Egg from a Hematitasaurus found at Cedar Lake in 1974
-Ok here goes, A chunk of Aluminum, from a previously
orbiting satellite. Itís worth a lot of money. Either that or about 2 cases
of empties that got thrown in the fire and is now a beer drinking trophy.
-Hey You Guys!
-I believe the item you have is a cannon ball. It came
from a Cannon! Duh! It came from Fort mackinac. And The reason a person
collected it is because the didn't know what the hell it was. The only
other possibility is a rabbit turd from the cad berry bunny. Were it came
from is pretty obvious. but if you want to know give me a call and ill
gladly explain it to ya.
-What is it? Itís a tin foil ball. Where did it come from?
It came from years of cold cut sandwiches for lunch. Why did a person collect
it? Why not?
-Well, this is obviously a collection of duct tape, or
possibly aluminum foil, that came from someoneís yard. You see, it was
used to plug rabbit holes while hunting. If you plug all of the holes except
one, then you know where the rabbit will come out, and it can be easily
-1. It is a piece of shit
-1. It is a pound of hamburger meat.
-We hope we donít offend Hoolieís rock hound mind set,
but the only guess we have is that itís got to be one of those aluminum
foil leftover lumps from the bottom of the downstairs freezer. Notice the
color changing from the years of abandonment. No one has the guts to open
it to see what is WAS a decade ago, but we have seen this similar shaped
object before. Or my husband says itís a melted down bowling ball (but
what yooper would do dat, eh?
-Hello to all da yoopers!! I grew up in Ontonagon but
sadly live in the south now though still a yooper girl at heart. My guess
is that itís a frozen batch of smelt wrapped in sarahn wrap. Hope Iím right.
-Well, everybody from da Great White North should know
dis one ya-know. Itís nothing more than a petrified, frozen moose fart
from the late Yoopazoic era. Before man, these great beasts roamed the
Upper Midwest grazing on hops and barley. It was a specimen such as dis
in which early man was able to derive the formula of Schlitz Beer. Evidently
the one you have pictured here is in pristine condition and should be put
on display at the National Beer Museum Located in Grand Rapids.
