L.A. Lore # 5

The Walt Disney Corporation has a building at 500 S. Buena Vista in Burbank, CA. What makes it unique are the seven stone Dwarfs (from the movie "Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs") built into the building design. The rumor is the architect hired to do the job (Michael Graves) had a falling out with Disney during construction (Disney is notorious for being union busters, cheap with those under their hire, and sue happy over the use of Disney images) and he built it so the rain drainage system would make it look like the seven Dwarfs are peeing on those below, the Disney executives leaving the building. Architect Graves won't confirm or deny the urban legend and neither will the executives who dread the coming golden showers when it rains.
