What Happens in Seattle…

Jerry-rigged pole extends out hotel room window.

Jerry-rigged pole extends out hotel room window.

Saturday, while we were BBQ’ing on the patio, we noticed a window in the hotel across the street was open. Then,a long wooden ‘pole’ extended out, at the tip a 6″ spike on which a small bunch of straw was attached. It slowly stretched out over the alley and,once over the edge of the apartment building next door,was inverted,allowing the straw to fall off. The pole was withdrawn back in through the hotel window and the entire sequence was repeated. Two more times. One of the bundles of hay fell into the alley, so, during a dog walk, I checked it out, unsure whether I’d find a severed hand or a hypodermic needle hidden inside the bundle, but it was only straw, knotted by twine.Who does something like this? And why?
