Mystery Substance. Coin included in photo to show size.
Some of my Esteemed Readers may remember this little photo, which I posted over at Velociman’s site last week.
The only piece of information I gave out was that the Mystery Substance is not shit. Right: for to post a photograph of an actual Turd-Chunk would be nekulturny in the extreme. Most unbecoming from someone who styles himself Mr. Debonair.
Some of the speculation in the Comments was positively inspired. A sampling:
- A petrified raisin. (Eric)
- A dried-up booger. (Skwerly, Acidman, Jimbo, Joan of Argghh!)
- A chunk of hash. (Lisa, Zonker, Kelly)
- A chunk of opium. (LauraN)
- A chunk of heroin. (Dash, DogsDontPurr)
- A chunk of Desiccated Moon-Pie. (Candy)
- A hemorrhoid. (Jack Straw, Marianne)
- A kidney stone. (Maeve)
Velociman himself may have nailed it with his speculation that it is “Elisson’s soul, mutated by God into a size convenient enough to flick away with a mighty Finger.”
But methinks the good Capitan may have come closest to the truth.
