WWTT: What Were They Thinking? #1 in a series ;)

My father was fond of walking his kids thru art museums.

When my brother was little, my father would take him and a roll of nickels (it was the 1950s) to a museum and, every time my brother correctly named the artist, he got a nickel.

I was walked thru a variety of art museums, too, but I do not remember my father showing me anything like this.

This painting was chosen by the Belgians to expose the world to Belgian culture. WWTT?

Cheers,

/s/ ikeyPikey

I guess they were thinking that they had a sense of humor. For about a quarter of a second I didn't notice anything *too* awful until I saw the bare bottom at lower right. I'm still giggling.

I think this picture shows that Belgians are drunks! Any current company excluded of course!

I think this painting is proof that, instead of being accidentally discovered by Albert Hoffman in 1938, LSD was in fact being used in 17th century Europe.

WWTT? That ``Manneken Pis`` would be too offensive

On occasion, the statue is hooked up to a keg of beer. Cups will be filled up with the beer flowing from the statue and given out to people passing by.
