What is this clay, bowl-like object?

While visiting a friend the other day, he showed me a very strange clay bowl. The bowl came with the house, which he rents. The owner does not know/recall the purpose of the bowl, nor have any guests been able to produce a convincing answer. More details and a drawing follow. [more inside]

Help Finding Cute Japanese Bowls

I purchased these porcelain bowls from TJ Maxx yesterday to use as feeding dishes for my cats. There were only two bowls at the store. They had a "Blue Moon Japan" sticker affixed and are stamped with the same name on the bottom. I would love to buy more in the same or similar color/pattern. My Google-fu isn’t strong this morning. I’ve only found tea sets from the same manufacturer. I would be thrilled to find the manufacturer’s website if only to find out what the pattern names are called.

"Congress created dust bowl"? What gives?

I recently drove from LA to San Francisco and back along I-5 and I noticed that there's a ton of signs along the highway that simply say "Congress Created Dust Bowl." There are a few other signs that mention Nancy Pelosi and other Democratic politicians, but it was difficult to get the full picture of what the signs were talking about. Can anyone provide some context/background to what these signs are about?

What is this nipple doing in this bowl?

A friend in Montreal is organizing a rummage sale at her church, and this bowl was donated. I have no other information from her other than this picture. I've done my best to research and ask around, but I'm stumped and so are a few of my antique and vintage tchotchke dealer friends. It's not the value of it that we're wondering about - everyone was curious as to what is the intended purpose for a nipple-shaped protrusion in the centre of the bowl -- do you know?

Engraved silver, post-divorce?

My in-laws engraved a silver bowl, with our names and wedding date, for our wedding. We're divorced. What the heck do we do with the bowl? My ex-husband doesn't want it. It's not my style. I feel like there must be something better that I can do with it than give it to Goodwill. It's Oneida and silverplate (looks like only the exterior was plated). Ideas?

Have you ever been to a bowl game?

I'm thinking of going a bowl game, most likely the Fiesta Bowl. Has anyone here ever been to a bowl game? Did you buy some sort of package deal, or did you get tickets and then find a hotel and airfare? Your impressions of the Tempe area would also be welcome.
