Our Vulgar Marlins Sculpture Nickname Winner: The Tremenda Mierda Fountain

We asked you for your dirtiest and most disgusting nicknames for the Marlins much talked about home run sculpture travesty, and you delivered. We narrowed it down to seven finalists, and Miami's vilest (AKA Riptide readers) have crowned a winner: The Tremenda Mierda Fountain.

Nice. It's blunt, but with that Latin flare. The voting wasn't even close.

Did you know that Chicago already has a Shit Fountain though? True story. Maybe if the Marlins' thing ever breaks down, they can just replace it with that.

Keep Miami New Times Free... Since we started Miami New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Miami, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
