It Came From the Sea

I just really like this:



AMSTERDAM (Reuters) - A giant, smiling Lego man was fished out of the sea in the Dutch resort of Zandvoort on Tuesday.


"We saw something bobbing about in the sea and we decided to take it out of the water," said a stall worker. "It was a life-sized Lego toy."

A woman nearby added: "I saw the Lego toy floating toward the beach from the direction of England."

No one knows where it came from....

'No real than you are'? Explody Pup and jsharr can put a sentence together. Either Ryanf or MERTON is behind this. Perhaps they are in cahoots.

You know. Come to think of it, merton has been gone from around here just long to have built a giant lego man and shipped it to Amsterdam

That is toooo funny - can you imagine flying over the ocean and seeing a big lego. Or on a cruise ship --- oh yeah sure buddy you saw a big man floating in the ocean - I think you've had enough for the evening - time to go to bed.
