"The Floozy in The Jacuzzi"

Floozy in the Jacuzzi

This famous fountain in Birmingham is known as Floozy in the Jacuzzi. Of course the official name probably isn't that, I mean, can you imagine the Lord Mayor of Birmingham unveiling the new water-feature and declaring to the onlooking crowd "I name this glorious fount The Floozy in The Jacuzzi. May the Pagan Gods and Goddesses bless her and all who mess about in her"?

Also, as surely as those chocolates are "Made for Sharing", Public fountains are made for messing about in. OK, this has to be "at your own risk", but rather than trying to ban it, the Council should encourage it, Trafalgar Square style!

You'd be doing well to get a water feature as good as this for your garden, but a variety of practical sized garden water features are available from UK Water Features
