A Conversation for Madison, Wisconsin, USA
Clearly Started conversation Jun 22, 2002
There is, to my knowledge, one other place outside of Wisconsin where people use the term "bubbler" instead of "drinking fountain" and that is in Queensland, Australia. It's entirely possible that it is used in other parts of Australia too; I wouldn't know. I haven't been to them all.
How the term came to exist with the same meaning on opposite sides of the globe, I have no idea. It is just another one of those great mysteries of Life, The Universe, and Everything.
