Wrong size for that, unless they're Vic's goldfish. (That's a major hint.)

The hint was the size. Goldfish are small.

I suppose it could be, but it isn't normally.

Does green, black, grey or orange make sense with this tool?

Oh, Gary certainly has a good idea now, but doesn't want to do the next riddle ;) With enough hints, somebody else might get it.

I'm trying to figure out what comes in those colours. It's not peppers...

beans? but you wouldn't put beans in those tongs would you?

Yes I don't want to spend a day looking for a picture. Getting hard to find anything that hasn't been done.

Does this have to date later than 1903? (if wiki has a patent date right)

I'm actually getting to be like that too, especially with the landscape game.

No, it's not peppers or beans. Of the four colors, one is the most common, one is traditional in a certain nation (and associated with a TV character from a couple of decades back), one I associate (perhaps mistakenly) with the Far East, and the fourth is very trendy right now.

(Don't take those in the order Gary mentioned them -- I don't remember right now what that order was.)

But there were none anywhere before 1903 as the thing they are used for was invented about then?
