Had a good laugh last week. I was driving the bus down Nicollet Mall about 5:30 one morning. (For those of you not familiar with Minneapolis, the Mall is a winding street that runs through the heart of downtown. It has only one lane in each direction and is reserved for bus, cab and limo traffic.) Some joker decided to but soap in the big brick water fountain next to the Hyatt hotel. I don't know how much they put in there, but the bubbles stretched from the fountain across the sidewalk and into the street and actually almost made it to the other side of the street. The funny part was actually the DEPTH of the bubbles. They had to be at least a foot deep. Of course, I drove right through them...WEEEEEEE! When I made bus stops for about half a mile after that, the bubbles would come loose from the bus and fly past the front door. It was great! The bubbles must have screwed up the drains around the fountain too because one was shooting a stream of water about 6-8 feet into the air. I don't condone vandalism, but that was cool!
