Tiny Little Outfits - Squared

When I was in Belgium I went to see the Manneken Pis, on the theory that that’s what one does in Brussels.  (One also eats gaufrettes until one bursts, but that’s a different story.)  Much to my amusement, I learned that the statue has over six hundred different outfits, and gets dressed up differently on every day of the year.  In fact, there’s a non-profit organization, Les Amis de Manneken-Pis, that’s in charge of arranging the boy’s costumes.  I kid you not.

Sugar Bush Squirrel, though, puts Manneken to shame, with over one thousand tiny squirrel outfits.  Sugar Bush vs. Manneken, anybody?
