At least someone's trying to clean up Florida.
Suds are fun. This is probably the thinking behind the probably-teenaged minds who poured several bottles of dish soap into a local waterfall fountain in Boca Raton, Florida, creating a blob the size of a decent-sized home and blowing chunks into the street. Oh suds, will you ever stop being delightful? Sure, the chemicals used to create you are petroleum-based pollutants, the flying chunks of foam that blew off of this Stay-Puff-Man-sized blob could have hit a car windshield (see video below) and caused a crash, and sure, foam parties at clubs are excellent breeding grounds for staph infections—but that's all neither here nor there. Especially the foam party part. I just thought you should all know that.
The owners of the fountain, the Logger Run Home Owners Association, are pretty pissed off, citing legal liability for the pranksters and complaining about the "hundreds" of dollars this will take to clean. Of course, there's also the free publicity suggesting people under 60 actually live in Boca Raton, FL.
To be fair, it adds to the squeaky-clean image Boca Raton would like to have.
