Your mission, should you choose to accept it

Is to tell me: What the hell is this?

Hint: I recieved it as a white elephant gift for Christmas. Consider it a librarian challenge. First person to get the answer recieves the respect of reference librarians everywhere.

You’ve got to use the code for brackets, otherwise it interprets them.

a Roto Rooter plumbing device? a trombone cleaner? No, wait! Being as my old college roommate was a complete klepto, who was known to produce everything from plywood to doorknobs to an entire flagpole in our freshman dorm room, I have to say–it looks like something that the Town of Chapel Hill uses to hang Christmas stars from lampposts on Franklin Street!! (that’s my final answer)
