Capitol Hill Is Fucking Weird

By Jonah Spangenthal-Lee June 4, 2010

Yesterday, CapitolHillSeattle reported on two totally weird incidents near the hill, which are quite worthy of attention.


First, CHS reports that yet another telephone pole on the hill may have been the targeted by a someone with a great love of fire, or a burning hatred for band posters. (My money's on Mark Sidran!) And this isn't the first time this has happened on the hill either. From CHS:



Last fall, CHS reported on a string of poster fires in the Pike/Pine area including a very similar incident at Pine and 11th in late September. A few weeks later in October, police were looking for a man and a woman who were seen starting another pole fire at 10th and Pike . A week after that, somebody started a fire that burned flyers on a bulletin board in the lobby of the Odd Fellows building . CHS is not aware of any arrests related to those incidents.

If that wasn't weird enough, CHS also has a report from a bizarre Barbie Doll mass suicide on First Hill:



[A]round 6pm Barbies came raining down from the building located at 1400 Boren Ave. About 12 littered Boren street with traffic crunching them in to different body parts.



Your move, Austin.
