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.
