“Mannekin Pis” – it literally translates as “Little Man Pee”.  Many stories exist as to why this statue (created in 1619) exists, and most of them have to do with little boys saving the city by either peeing on a fire or of one sticking his “privates” into a appropriately sized hole to stop the city from flooding.
