Dear readers: please try and identify the mystery object I’m holding (I’m the large object on the right, with the glasses). You only get points for being as specific as possible. As always, the prize is smug satisfaction (and an undisclosed sum of special Tet Zoo dollars). Good luck. Guess early, guess often.
