The Daily Teaser — 20-11-2015

You know, I have a puzzle.

Depending on your definition of ‘puzzle,’ of course.

Remember me suing, a few days ago, that I’d picked up some USB memory sticks?

Well, when they got delivered, they came with a free gift … !

See the little rubber fish thing, pictured in the photo … ?

That’s the gift.

One I originally thought was something that could help me thread the lanyards the sticks came with, onto the sticks.

Which didn’t work out, I should add: I needed up using a needle and thread.

At ANY rate … ?

It’s left with a fish thing …

And no clue about what that is … 


But let’s move on, shall we?
