Once upon a time there was a crow that would take shiney things.
And everyday he would fly to different towns searching for anything shiney and interesting.
Until one day two friends decide they wanted to follow the crow and steal all his shinies.
And because of this they need something to get his attention and to track him.
And because of this need to track him they they made a shiney silver cane with an antenna and set it out daily hoping to get his attention.
Until finally the crow took the bait and flew away with it.
And ever since that day the two crooks have been following the tracking signal hoping to find the crow and all the stolen shinies.
