It’s Kind Of Gross What They Pull Out Of Buckingham Fountain Everyday
It's been shooting water over 100 feet in the air every hour for 90 years.
With that kind of workload, it's amazing how small the entire working operation is.
While the fountain is beautiful, the cleaning of it can be kind of gross.
In the video above you really only see a bunch of seagull feathers (wet, gross) and a chicken bone. I'll give the guy a hand he handled finding a bone with his bare hands a lot better than I would have. There have been stories of pulling bigger things out of there and even finding a family of foxes living in the pump house when it got too cold outside.
Take two minutes and check out the video above. It's a lot more interesting than your average episode of Married With Children.
