One screwy little boy.

I've never found the Mannekin Pis creepy, but in my mind these guys belong in a b-horror flick.

What is this and why?

Jessica said...

Yeah. Normally there's a little-boy part there where the corkscrew is. The peeing boy is a real-life fountain that exists in Brussels. Thousands of people come to see him every year, and realize when they finally do that they thought he'd somehow be bigger, or more prominently placed.

But still, he's an ambassador of Belgium, like chocolate and waffles. The mannekin pis.

And here, well... This little souvenir variation just gives me the heebie-jeebies.

Ha, yes I've seen the boy on my trip to Belgium several (by that I mean infinite) years ago. What can I say, I guess they wanted to highlight his skills?!
