Paris has the Seine. Brussels the Insane

Mary Ellen Synon writes about Brussels:

Anyone who asks ‘Why were you in Paris?’ has never lived in Brussels

For reasons lost in history, or at least beyond comprehension, the Manneken Pis has become the symbol of Brussels.

Rome has the Trevi Fountain, Paris has the Arc de Triomphe, Berlin has the Brandenburg Gate, Brussels has a statue of a boy urinating. Says it all, really.

Don’t stop there… Read it all.
