You will need plenty of those little plastic corn cob holders so your guests can roll the corn against your fountain. Also, etiquette dictates that your guests roll the corn TOWARDS themselves and they shouldn't roll ears they've already gnawed on. They could use the same holders for the rolls. If you could build up some pressure, I'm sure your guests could hold the potatoes under the stream. Potential Problems: gusty winds

I used to work for Unilever, who owns most of the margarines on the market (Becel, Blue Bonnett, I Can't Believe It's Not Butter, Country Crock, etc), and it was pretty much known by all that they were food substitutes that were a molecule away from being plastic. But then, most of their products are artificial slop - Knorr still uses monosodium glutamate as an addictive additive when they really don't have to, Suave and Dove products are full of chemical and cheap fillers, and although they insist they don't, Unilever still tests on animals.
