Everything - Especially This - Is Awesome

Sent in by an alert reader is this awesome story for the day...

Someone Found A Way To Make Lego Blocks Even More Awesome. OMG.
For many years, Lego blocks have been thought of as a boy's toy only. As generations have grown up, the gender roles have changed a little bit, but you still typically see more young boys asking for Legos rather than girls. A brilliant inventor is about to change all of that.

Illustrator and designer Akihiro Mizuuchi created a new and improved Lego that is designed to delight all children, and adults, of any age.
Chocolate Legos. PURE. GENIUS. There's a couple of pics in the article that I suspect are chocolate-colored plastic Legos, but this one certainly could be chocolate:


The potential for hilarity with these is great. Think about having a Lego house sitting on the table, with extra bricks strewn about. When someone comes in, exclaim dramatically that you're sick of your kids leaving their toys around, so you're going to teach them a lesson, and take a big bit out of the house.

Or, alternate, inform someone of the chocolate Legos. Consume a handful to show, and offer a couple. Then, slip in a few plastic Legos just to be a jerk...

Oh, I am certain I will misuse this information...

That is all.

The only thing I could build out of Chocolate Legos would be a Bigger Spare Tire!

Imagine making the late-night, lights-out trip to the bathroom and stepping on a few of these that were left on the floor. The real ones may be more painful to step on, but these would be messier!

Wandering Neurons, my mother hated the clear blocks for just that reason, and it didn't have to be in the dark, apparently they didn't show up that well on the carpet selected for the kids' room because it didn't show dirt (an unexpected side effect).

I'm going to have to buy this. Christmas is coming and little oddities like this would be terrific in the box of baked goodies.
