Maybe not to everyone. That is why I tried to be specific in what I was asking for. For all I know, maybe some of our members who do not live in the USA never even heard of Gettysburg.....

So what are you asking for? The item's name, its use? Does it have more than one uses and you need both to be right?

OK. My guess is a keychain.

That's it! It's a Puchi-Puchi, a bubble wrap popping simulator.

Go for it!

lol, what won't somebody make?
I read it even makes different sounds, just like the real stuff.

What is this all too common critter?
It has a real name and a generic one. Either will do.
This pic was taken by someone inquiring what it was, not me Sorry for its fuzziness.

That was the first thing that popped in my mind. Seems like as a kid, they always infested our spices.

It is not a weevil, no snout like weevil's have. And the markings on this beetle are specific.
Close though.....

That's it sattie! It's a larder or pantry beetle, which feeds on anything high in protein; grains, dead flies in your walls, dog food.....

You're up!
