Today's Wonder of the World is...LEGOs!

Did you play with LEGOs as a kid? Do you still play with them?
(It's okay. I know a very impressive man whose name starts with St and rhymes with leave who'd ask his big sister for LEGO sets for Christmas, even after he was grown up and married!)
We've got tubs full of LEGO at our house and I love the stuff, except when I step on pieces in the middle of the night. Then I don't love it quite so much. Or when grumpy children get in a LEGO fight and throw pieces at each other. Not that that has ever happened at my house.
(Obviously they hadn't realized that the name LEGO comes from the Danish phrase leg godt, which means "play well." I knew I should have given them Danish lessons!)
You might be amazed at some of the crazy stuff creative people make with LEGO.
Like lucky cats, for example.

Some people even make useful things.

Other creative souls use LEGOs to create art.

Whoops! Girl with the Pearl Earring, that's not exactly what I meant. Though you are amazing.
Here's what I'm talking about.

Are you ready to bare your soul?

Or spill your guts?
How about a whole LEGO tourist family, complete with pets?!

Maybe those tourists are out looking for movie stars.
Hey, there's one.

Wait a minute... I just saw Hagrid and Harry and the whole gang dancing in this LEGO video.
Feel free to dance along...
Or maybe you'd rather watch LEGO videos from Les Miserables , Indiana Jones, or Grease. Have fun!
And have a wonder-full Friday and weekend, y'all!
