Welcome to Daily Trivia. There is a game to play here. The photo above relates to one of the items below. The first reader to correctly tell us in the comments what item the photo belongs to, and why, gets bragging rights. Sometimes they are obvious, other times the obvious answer is the decoy. Can you figure it out tonight? Â
Been a bit distracted today, so just one.
The question is: Â is this at the vet, or is is this the food prep section?

Winston Peters has launched his Northland by-election campaign by telling voters he’s offering them “a chance in a lifetime”.
The NZ First leader’s message at a street corner meeting was that if they back him he’ll be a strong advocate for a region that’s been neglected by successive governments.
“Northland ranks very high on social deprivation that that’s an absolute indictment of National’s woeful treatment of this region,” he told a street corner crowd in Wellsford today.
Mr Peters says that between now and March 28 he’ll cover the electorate from top to bottom in his “Force for the North” campaign bus.
The seat is vacant because National’s Mike Sabin resigned last month, citing personal reasons.
It’s been a safe National seat for decades but Mr Peters says he can win it by focusing on the way the region has been neglected.
And he’s targeting National voters by pointing out the government won’t change if he takes the seat, while the region will benefit from the strong message he’ll take to Wellington.

You may recall the piece about “The Hound” in the Rural News doing an ad hominem attack on me. Â They disagree, so I’m scum. Â I work with people they don’t like, so I’m scum. Â My readers are inbreds, so I’m scum.
It is done that way because smearing works. Â And it’s typical behaviour fromÂ the domain of people who are losing – they don’t want to argue the point, they want to shut you down.
Some of you took to your keyboards to tell them what you thought of them.
