Cement fountain

"It needs a bit of cleanup, and doesn't include the pump, but is very solid"

A bit of cleanup? It looks to me as though it needs a shave.

I also like the "very solid" description. That's shorthand for "I tried very hard to smash this into pieces that would fit in the trash, but nothing doing."

In any event, this is yet another example of the free section as manifestation of boundless optimism. "I have a huge, broken eyesore in my backyard. Maybe someone will relieve me of the burden I brought upon myself, when, in a moment of utter non-lucidity, I paid money for this."

Sure, it wasn't always broken and hirsute, but it was always an ugly cement fountain. You should have known this day would come.
