On Seafaring LEGO Men

The ocean gives up its secrets. In the Dutch village of Zandvoort, the secret was…

An eight-foot tall LEGO man.

The eight foot tall smiling Lego man with a yellow head and blue torso was seen bobbing in the sea in the Dutch resort of Zandvoort yesterday.

LEGO men, lost at sea. Surely, this blue man was following merely in the steps once trod by his Viking ancestors — a thousand years ago the Danes plundered and pillaged from the Mediterranean to Iceland and beyond. Their LEGO descendants — surely they would feel a wanderlust. Surely!

He’s safe now, the LEGO man, guarding a lemonade stand. The ocean did him no harm.
