Strictly city/urban: A ratty ball of fake hair extention (commonly referred to as "weave") that has been roaming the streets since it liberated itself from someones, ahem, "hair."

Usually it has picked up other debris in it's tangled mess, adding to it's charm.

"Shit! I thought that was a rat. Just tumbleweave."
