What is this mystery piece of magnetic metal?

Text:

I recently had to crack open my LCD to clean out some milk from between the various panels (don't ask).

At some point a small piece of metal fell out from somewhere:

That's just a dot of blue ink that you can see on it. It was magnetized slightly, but I couldn't find where it came from. I ended up stuffing it into a little groove where it obviously didn't belong.

Does anybody know what this is?

PS:

Is it possible to inline images with the wiki syntax?

EDIT:

I just posted a blog entry with the details of my milk-spill adventure:
