Google Search Gone Wrong ~ The Shit Fountain

The kids were drivin’ me crazy and it was only a couple of days into their winter break.
I had to get out of the house and go do something…
so I got onto google and I typed ‘weird shit in Chicago.’
This came up.
I have to admit…
I’d never heard of the Shit Fountain before.
‘Could it possibly be real’ I wondered.
I got the kids in the car and I plugged the coordinates of this mystical sight into the GPS.
I told them we were gonna see something cool.
I didn’t tell them exactly what it was.
It was going to be a surprise.
‘This better not be like that time you took us to see all the Dutch windmills in Illinois in one day dad’ one of them chided.
They’re still bitter about that.
‘I hope it’s not some historical marker or something like that either.’
I only told them that I was gonna take them to see something like they had never seen before.
Parking the car I gathered them up and crossed the street…
When they saw it their jaws dropped…
they looked at each other and one of them said…
‘dad… you’re an idiot.’
‘I’ll be in the car’
and ‘me too.’
I thought it was kinda edgy though.
I heard that it’s a piece of protest art created by a guy who got sick of people not cleaning up after their dogs.
I thought maybe it was a commentary on the state of Chicago politics.
it was a very quiet drive to the Chicago History Museum after that.
‘This better be a real museum dad.’
If you wanna check out the Shit Fountain in Chicago it’s at 1005 N. Wolcott Avenue.
