Sole source of drinkable water in P’tucket…except for those brave enough to drink from forcetts. “She asked me wheah the fountain was. ‘In the pock in Kennedy Plaza,’ I said. She said, ‘No, the fountain.’ I said, ‘I juss tole ya; in the pock.’ She said, ‘No, a fountain like whatcha drink outta.’ I said, ‘You mean the bubbla?’ She said, ‘What’s a bubbla?’ Obviously an outtastayta.”
