Drinking Fountains: Refreshment or Receptacle

My grandmother always told me not to drink out of drinking fountains on the boardwalk 'cause people "wash their feet in them." Naturally, I refused to believe such a wild accusation against a harmless inadament object. The public drinking fountain has provided me with copious amounts of free refreshment for years. It is a symbol of freedom and democracy.

Today, I saw a man urinating in a drinking fountain downtown... sorry grandma, I should have respected your superior wisdom all along.
