Pre-caffeinated thought for the day

"Jack and Jill went..."

Wait.

Who the hell drills a well at the top of a hill?

Artesians, that's who. ;)

You know, I almost gave you the benefit of the doubt 'cause you know stuff. But I'ma stand by my ramblings for a few more minutes at least.

@#$%^&* Bob, you stole my bright idea. I was all set to type in, "It was an artesian well." (Actually I was going to do a Wiki check on "artesian" before submitting it just to be sure my childhood memories of the meaning were correct!!!)

Furthermore, I'ma stand by MY comments. There was a bigger hill just beyond Jack and Jill's hill, and the (artesian) well from which they either did nor did not successfully fetch a pail of water was, indeed, at the top of THEIR hill.

I think the "pail of water" is a euphemism for, um, something else...

;)

I don't think *any* of y'all are correct. It was a cistern.

So there.

Who the hell builds a cistern at the top of a hill?

Cistercians, that's who. :)
