Thanks to reader Kelly S. for this story about a giant Lego man that washed up on a beach in Brighton, England. Had I been one of these kids, this easily would have been the greatest day of my childhood. According to The Telegraph:
The Lego man is 6ft tall in red, yellow and green. It is presumed to have washed up on the beach, but whether it has come from a cargo ship or from across the Channel is not clear.
Brighton resident Gerry Turner, 34, said: “It’s very odd. God knows how it got here but people are saying it’s from Holland because it’s got some Dutch writing on it. It must have fallen off a boat of something. The kids love it.”
How did the Lego man wind up at sea? He might be part of a clever marketing campaign for the Lego man’s 30th anniversary. It also is possible he fell off a ship. (Lego is headquartered in Denmark.) Or maybe, just maybe, he knew too fucking much.
