April Mystery Image: Clue 1

Let’s wrap up April with another Mystery Image challenge. Everyone who plays is so good at guessing, so I’m making this one extra difficult. I’ll be astounded if anyone guesses right on the first try.

I’m going to post three clues — part of an image today, a proverb on Tuesday, and more of the image on Wednesday. Put your guesses, thoughts, and reasoning in the Comments section, below. (There’s already a bonus hint in today’s post.)

I’ll reveal the answer on Thursday, May 1st!

Here’s the first clue:

      Clarinets do not look like that. They have less valves at the bottom and no valves at the level the picture is taken. If it was a real clarinet, the bell (bottom) would be free of any valves. I know this because I play clarinet in band.

  • isaac April 28, 2014, 8:44 pm

    it might be a boat, toy dock, or a race car because it looks like it has a seat in the picture.

    Reply
    • Jeanette April 29, 2014, 2:51 pm

      Isaac — I can totally see “the seat”… almost as if it’s reflected in a convex surface. (But it’s not a boat, toy dock, or race car.) Keep guessing!

  • Abby April 29, 2014, 12:59 am

    I’m pretty sure its not a clarinet. i’m in band so i am pretty familiar with the instrument, and it does not appear to be a clarinet.
    although i may be wrong, it kinda does look like a spray can top.

  • Adia April 29, 2014, 1:26 am

    I think it’s a platypus nose.

    Reply
    • Jeanette April 29, 2014, 2:54 pm

      Adia — I thought this, too, as I was loading the image, and wondered if anyone else would see that. (It’s not a platypus, though, so keep guessing!)
