Brussels came within four days of dressing its pissing boy statue as Michael Jackson

Brussels came within four days of dressing its pissing boy statue as Michael Jackson
Brussels has a statue dedicated to the legend that, when the city was in danger of destruction, a small boy urinated on the explosives to stop them going off. Or the Manneken Pis, as the statue is known, because it’s a small boy with it’s cock out weeing.
 
The pissing boy is a global landmark, and the council like to put costumes on it for special events (such as a fire person’s uniform), and then keep them in a museum. Which is the context to how a Michael Jackson club got permission to dress the pissing boy in a Michael Jackson costume, and how someone only realised and cancelled it four days before.
 
In a sense, honouring the ten years since Michael Jackson evaded charges by dying would have been perfectly achieved.
