Milk the clock. Offside. Scrimmage. Tight end. Hut hut. Wing back. From these gridiron phrases, hut hut was the key clue to yesterday’s “What the….?”. Some of others were meant to throw you off. But it’s obvious by your responses that y’all are much more clever than my attempt at hints.

Me: Hut hut. I thought the Hut-Hut rocking stool got its name because it looks a bit like a football. And hut hut is what a quarterback says to the punter. It’s also what you say, instead of  “giddy-up”, if you’re riding a camel. The camel being the actual inspiration point for this piece of furniture.

Here’s a string of your answers noted by quotes: Don’t worry about falling “off the sides” when you sit your “tight end” on this “wingless” and “backless” rocking horse-inspired “funky new chair” that could probably also work as an “ottoman”. While it’s not specifically used as an “exercise stool to achieve a tight end”, where there’s a will, there’s a way. And the Hut-Hut is too beautiful to ever end up in a yard sale like one of those abs exercisers.

I’d say, next time I’ll do better with my clues, but I love the answers y’all came up with! Everyone’s a winner this week!

    I was liesurely browsing when I came to "Hut Hut" and I went "Whoa"! I just love it, everything about it. It's design, the availability in such clever materials, for kids or me, I mean adults and on, and on and on. "Giddy up".
