J's Hub - What the heck is it?
I recently ask a very simple question here on the Hub Pages in the hope of finding out the true use of a bowl of which I purchased one cold morning at a local flea market. When I saw the bowl on a table I asked the sellers - "What was the bowl used for?". However neither of the two men knew the correct answer to my question. One of the two men said, "Perhaps it's used for holding, and keeping onion rings separate from each other". However I truly doubt that was the case or the use for this bowl. The other man said I'll take a dollar bill for it. So I figured what the heck, and I bought it for a buck. I took it home to my wife with the hope of finally having it's purpose revealed once and for all, however she was as baffled as I was. I really thought she would know the answer since she is such a great cook, and watches all those cooking shows on television, but she was at total loss just as me. She also asked that her picture not be shown on this hub, and I"m honoring her request for my own protection. We have asked many people that we know, but so far no one has been able to tell us what this bowl's purpose is. So I decided to ask a question on the hub pages to my fellow hubbers, which has a link to it below. They came up with purposes for the bowl ranging from chilling foods, cake bowls, and dog bowls to meat holders, however no one was quite sure of it's purpose. There were some really good answers from some really smart people, however the true purpose of this bowl remains a mystery. So in another attempt to identify the purpose of this bowl I decided to write another hub to see if I can finally find out the answer to this mystery. After all this is as good of a topic as any for a hub. As far as the bowl itself goes, it's pictured here on this hub to help with identifying it's purpose. It's one solid ceramic piece, and there are no manufacturing markings on it to be found anywhere, which might help us figure this problem out. This isn't a riddle where I know the answer, so drbj let's see you do your magic on this hub. If anyone can help solve this unknown mystery, please let me know in the comment section below.
