The Kurt question, answered

REGION

The identity of the mysterious Kurt, who has been placing signs all over parts of New Hampshire and Massachusetts, may have finally been solved.

The bright yellow signs that proclaimed "Why-Kurt?" seem to be an advertisement for Weichert Realty, the Union Leader of Manchester, N.H. reports. Weichert is a national real estate chain that has recently moved into the area.

Marjorie Warnick of Norfolk took special interest in the signs, because she has a son named Kurt.

"I thought it was political, that one of the town officials had been caught doing something wrong," she told the Union Leader. However, she was a little irked when she found out the real deal.

"It's ingenious," she said, "but it's also annoying."
