Liverpool is honoring the 100th anniversary of the Titanic this weekend, with festivities that wrap up today. Among those festivities are a bunch of giant puppets made by the French. Specifically, French people out to confirm every conceivable stereotype about their country being kind of nasty. We're warning you, this one is not safe for work.

So, the puppet, based on a little girl who sent her uncle a letter he never received, was supposed to tour Liverpool. And, at one point, in front of thousands of spectators, it took a pee.

No, really.

Needless to say, people were horrified. The puppeteers of Royal Deluxe, who constructed this puppet specifically for the event, argue that hey, little girls do this all the time, to which we say, well, yeah, but not in the street in front of thousands and not usually when they're 30 feet tall.

Here's what we don't get: how did this get past the drafting stage? Because somebody had to have this idea, and somebody else had to sign off on it. Nobody thought "Hmmmm, this might be a bit...wrong?" Really?
