I didn't win last week, but was pressed into service because of the winner's previous commitment.

The creator of THIS [images2.fotki.com] Gizmo has given it a specific name.

Your mission, if you choose to accept it, is to 1) provide the exact name, and 2) tell us its intended purpose.

I'm afraid clues will be few and far between since they might tend to lead you in the wrong direction rather than help you.

BTW, it is NOT a pipe of any sort.

Good luck.

Hint: from the exact name of this gizmo, you might think it has something to do with the healing arts.
