My 'Kill Bill' Fountain

Remember the scene in Kill Bill Volume I, where Lucy Liu's character is duking it out with Uma Thurman's character in a snowy garden? If you have the chance to see the movie again, listen and watch for the gentle plunk-plunk of a bamboo fountain. I was obsessed with that thing, had to have one of my own. It took some online searching to find one for purchase, but find it I did, and now I have one emptying into a blue-green Vietnamese pot. There are always a couple of frogs living in and near the fountain, and my two cats like the fresh, moving water. The motion and plunk-plunk sound supposedly deter the deer, but my ravaged hostas say otherwise.


  1. Does it produce the same sound as the fountain in Kill Bill? If so, could you let me know where I might be able to purchase one? :) Thanks!

  2. Yes--it sure does. A gentle clunk-clunk. I found it online. They're sometimes referred to as deer chaser fountains:
