  • $\begingroup$ I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because it is not a riddle, nor a puzzle of any kind. It's a trivia question. (It's apparently also being used in some Discord server's contest, but it's certainly not original to them either, so I'm not treating it as a contest puzzle.) $\endgroup$ – Rubio May 4 at 7:27

Could be a trick question, but just in case it isn't...

A wine bottle. The indentation on the bottom of the bottle is called a punt.

It could be:

A television set that is currently displaying an American football game. (In American football, a "punt" is a particular way of kicking the ball.)

Alternately, it could be:

A very large grassy field that completely surrounds a house (so it's "around the house"), upon which some people are playing a game of American football.

Is it...

An old Irish piggy bank?

Explanation:

A punt is an Irish pound. I say "old" because of course Ireland no longer uses them (now uses the Euro instead).
