Honest about my faith

Overflowing?

Chocolate fountains are great with all that none stop chocolate being pumped out. The only thing sad about chocolate fountains is that often you are given fruit to dip into them and that leaves me wondering why anyone would want to spoil good chocolate with fruit?
