Seriously, though about Hampton, there is probably a chance you could obtain a staph infection. I know of people getting staph infections in lakes/ponds in the Charleston area possibly due to people not picking up after their dogs and the waste runsoff into the waterways. The geese and ducks are what cause the muck at Hampton though and the city did try to deter them from hanging around the pond a couple of years ago when it was drained but I am not sure it worked.

Not to mention a psychiatric exam.
