Kitsch Is, After All, About Bad Taste... So Urine For A Treat
While we still don't want to grab any coins out of it, the fountain makes more sense than the idea of recycled booze -- but, hey, Brussels doesn't sell itself like Vegas. So what happens in Brussels, comes back from Brussels.
All of this makes us wonder about the souvenir trinkets from Leaning Tower of Pisa.

Fortune Stix Don't Sux
Super bonus points because they are fortune telling sticks. The six Fortune Stix (one's a repeat) predict:
Vanity will be your undoing.I guess my particular brand of charm will involve hard work... I guess that's the only way I can avoid being vain.
A successful trip is forecast.
Near-by love will protect you.
Hard work will make you wealthy.
Your charm will bring you riches.
I'm thinking the "near-by love" who will "protect you" is the designated driver. And that's why you'll also have a successful trip.
