Water Bucket Riddle

Water Bucket Riddle

Oct 8, 2011
spotted at Dumaguete Public Market, Painitan Area - Negros Oriental

The Water Bucket
As I was enjoying my budbud and tablea chocolate drink at Dumaguete's Painitan, it started raining hard. Then a man put his water bucket beneath the downspout where accumulated rain water was gushing down. The bucket never filled up. Obviously, it had a big hole underneath. What the heck was he doing? It was a puzzle. Finally, I asked one of the Manangs. She gave me a logical answer.

Riddle Me This: Why did the man put his water bucket under the spout? I'll give the answer after getting 10 answers or after a week, whichever comes first.

(Oct 8, 2011) If it's the red bucket in the photo then it serves as a marker so people don't inadvertently get dripped on.
