Only involves water if you mess it up........(and if you're drunk enough

You will note (but only if you take the time to look) that underneath
Wentworth Bridge (the one that goes from Wenty C Block towards Goody)
there are a number of bars that run perpendicular to the direction(s) of

warn them.........(for some reason it doesn't eat the feet though.....maybe
folks should try washing them more often).........
