Brussels boy to pee-cycle after landmark leak inquiry

Brussels’ famous landmark, the Manneken-Pis, is an insouciant celebration of going with the flow — but even carefree little boys can go too far.

City authorities recently discovered that a fault in the 400-year-old statue’s plumbing was causing him to pee away 2.5 tonnes of water a day.

In 2019, such waste is an environmental no-no.

A missing part in the guttering under the diminutive statue’s fountain sent his public urination directly down the drain.
