Fire Hydrant
by Anubis the Philosomancer


I find it deeply ironic
that no one knows who invented the Fire Hydrant
because it's Patent was lost to a fire.

Like a good soldier, dutifully standing guard, in case of fire! Elegant simplicity! Nice clean colorful capture!

Oh my looks like a Ood from Doctor Who!

The Doctor: Ood, tell me, does "the circle" mean anything to you?
The Ood: The circle must be broken.
Donna: Whoa, that is creepy.
The Doctor: But what is it? What is the circle?
The Ood: The circle must be broken.
The Doctor: Why?
The Ood: So that we can sing.

Love Tom Waits,listen to his version of Sea of Love

Comme le dit LouiH, vraiment des plus commique, cette histoire de fontaine, dont le brevet a brûlé dans un incendie !
Toujours est-il que voilà une belle bouche à incendie, espèons au moin qu'elle soit en état de fonctionnement si un feu venait à se déclarer à cet endroit !

It looks like a character waiting in the wings of a theatre for its cue to set out mid stage.

That is trivia night worthy fact, thank you Antonio

There is always something comical about a fire hydrant!
