I really enjoy a good Meme, but recently I noticed one in response to the terrorist attacks in Brussels which really missed the mark. It depicted the Mannekin Pis doing his business on an AK-style pistol. I realize the artist probably didn’t know the difference and thought they were drawing a machine gun, but they drew a pistol since it has no stock. Even if it had a stock it was out of context because no firearms were used in the terror attacks in Belgium.


I can get the meaning behind the art, but it would be better to do what another artist did and have the statue pissing on a terrorist!
