Tuesday Teaser 032712: Multiple Choice Edition Who says we shy away from controversy? Here's a multiple-choice Teaser! The thig-a-majigs above, photographed while dangling from a tree on the way to the Lyndhurst Nature Reserve in DeKorte Park are: A: Firkins B. Bodkins C. None of the above.
Answer C ?
The words “Firkins” and “Bodkins” were common in Shakespeare’s time, but are words long out of circulation. What is shown in the photo looks more like a bodkin (a type of knife knife) than a firkin (a unit of measure).
“C” as in catkins.
