A question for you.

The 'Chairman', who has his own engineering unit was asked to make an implement for 'Waterboard Mick', and 'Roger the gas'.

The question is....what is it?

The closed position, beautifully modelled by the 'Beer monster'.

The open position.

My dad used to have one of those when he had an allotment in the 1950's, it's for planting pototoes. A very handy bit of kit.

Darn, I was convinced, I really did believe it's for planting potatoes and wanted one [I love potatoes].

Is it a metal detector? I want one too. I'd go hunting for buried treasure.

Mr.Rob got it. It is indeed a potato planter! Drop the potato in when in the closed position, push into the soil, and open the trap...spud planted!
