Long Description:
(from the sign)
Mortado
"The Human Water Fountain"
Believe It or Not! Natives in Africa attempted to crucify Mortado, an officer in the German Navy as well as an explorer and big game hunter, but he survived and escaped. For the rest of his life he performed with the Dreamland Circus Sideshow at Coney Island, demonstrating how water gushed from the wounds in his hands and feet.

Visit Instructions:
Only one log per location per person (meaning multiple visits -> multiple logged visits -> OK!). You should log your own waymarked fountains as well. After all, you did in fact visit the area to which you marked to way.

Even if an individual waymark owner has a requirement indicating a photo is required, it is not. If there is any dispute, contact the category management group for clarification.
