Short info

When disaster strikes, WaterBOB to the rescue.

Detailed information

The WaterBOB is a huge plastic bag for emergency water storage.  It works like a liner to the bath tub.  When there is a need to store up water, put WaterBOB into the tub, remove the white nozzle cap, screw one end of the "fill sock" on to the nozzle cap and the other end to the faucet.  Turn the tap on and fill up WaterBOB.  The bag keeps the water clean and free from contamination.  When you need to use water, hand-pump water out of WaterBOB through the siphon.  Capacity up to 100 gallons.
It also doubles up as a water-bed.  Just ignore the nozzle and the hand pump.

The Runcible Spoon

Jim Daldry from North Carolina writes in about Jonathan Swift's connection with the Runcible Spoon, which was a spknork, but Leo thinks that it was Edward Lear who coined the phrase in The Owl and the Pussycat.
