How on Earth did we miss this?

I rarely get the opportunity to throw a hat tip to a right wing blog for something so fabulously hilarious, but Betsy Newmark gets the credit for this one. (Of course, she was complaining about it, where I'm looking for an address to place orders.)

A Belgian novelty shows what the good people of Brussels really think about George W. Bush.

WHEN JOHAN VANDE LANOTTE, Belgium's Vice Prime Minister, goes to the toilets today, he finds the urinals in the offices of his ministry decorated with stickers. They show an American flag and the head of George W. Bush. "Go ahead. Piss on me," the caption says.

Vande Lanotte is one of Bush's hosts in Brussels. Is peeing on your guest's head appropriate? In Belgium it is. After all, Brussels' best known statue is that of "Manneken Pis," a peeing boy.
Unless somebody can find an English version of the Belgian Socialist Party homepage, we don't have any information on how to order these. The article claims they are free, but somehow I don't think they printed enough to keep up with the demand that they'd have in the United States. Stay tuned.
