What is it? Revealed

Here's the original image:

Still confused? Here's the explanation. Remember this? It's the sculpture that Adam made in his art class a couple of months ago. When I examined it more closely I found about 8 of those little clay balls inside. After I managed to fish a few of them out I asked Adam what they were. His answer? Hairballs.
Just so you know, fishing them out was no small task. For one, they aren't very big (about an inch in diameter); the space inside the sculpture, which also isn't very big, didn't accommodate my hands (which are kind of big) very well; and to top it off, he also has a couple of push pins inside it, hardened into the clay, facing outward. I'm thinking he set a booby trap for any would-be hairball thieves.

So, there you have it. Thanks to everybody who played along. Please join us again next week (or the next time I get around to it) for another round of "What is it?"

Oh man! I even saw those 'hairballs' that looked a lot like tiny brains in the bottom of his sculpture. Wow. That's some true talent being able to make something that could be SOOO many different things. Go Adam.

Hairballs??? Who would have thought? Myrna alsmost guessed, right? Still could have been something in my freezer. Great puzzle.

Dang it! I missed the guessing. I guess that's what happens when work nearly kills you.

I was looking forward to another chance to humiliate you, but I guess I'll just have to wait for next week. :)

(Oh, and I totally would have guessed hairballs.)

Just kidding. I probably would have guessed this was the way your kids decorated your bathroom with some old toothpaste. Not as funny as the unibrow, but I'm having an off day.
