What would you call this?

Seriously. Off the top of your head, what is the first word (or 2 words) that come to mind?
To me, this is a water fountain or drinking fountain. Always has been, always will be. It can look like this, it can be one of those porcelain things, but this will forever be in my mind a water fountain.
Ah, but imagine my surprise when I am at school with Ian last week and he tells me to hold on a second - he wants to get a drink from the "bubbler". What have I done to my child? He has adopted a "Wisconsin" word. True, he has lived in this state for almost half of his life, but I would think I could "protect" him from such things. Oh well, at least we have still managed to keep him a Bears fan!

It's a bubbler up in Mass too, I asked to go get a drink at the bubbler when I was in elementary school. :o)
