A Lego Lobotomy

It's not a very well kept secret that I'm a Lego Nerd.

I can't help it, really!

I just love building with Legos.  Before someone comes down and says "they're Lego Bricks" I'm just going to come right out and say:  I. Don't. Care.  Seriously - a Lego employee once reamed me for using the word "legos" and ever since then I've gone out of my way to use it as much as possible...

because I'm a sweetie like that.

My kids?  All Lego nerds as well.

The 12 year old had a little shin-dig to celebrate his manhood and wanted a lego cake...

it looked cool... but my favorite picture?


The Lego Lobotomy.

Of course, that resulted in a very interesting conversation with a room full of 12 year olds about what a lobotomy is...

at which point it was sounding like a better and better idea...

and now... days later when the "lego mess" has become a true "lego apocalypse" throughout my house...  I think I'll take a lobotomy with a side-order of electro-stim... it certainly can't hurt much more than stepping on all those stupid little things!

LOL Sounded better and better? I love legos too. Glad I had so many boys so I could play so much with them!

Love that cake! My boys were all Lego nerds, we had millions of those little bricks laying around everywhere!!

LC said...

We don't own any! Sad. But, Kate is asking for that for Christmas...yes it's never to early to start in on the Christmas requests...
Awesome cake and surgical procedure!

I have never heard them referred to as lego bricks. I feel like I should hand in my geek card. But since I love the idea of the lego lobotomy, I guess I can keep it.

Yay for Legos! And what a cute cake, even if it did end up lobotomized. I can I get an "Amen!" about stepping on them?! Ouchies!! I always made my boys clear a path to their beds so I wouldn't injure myself in the night if I needed to get to them. Ah, those were the days...

that is a cool cake! What a fun idea. We like legos around here too

Sher said...

Great cake. My boys all want legos for Christmas -- and I've never once referred to them as lego bricks. Too long.

Melissa said...

Magnificent cake. I don't think lego makes you necessarily a geek.

I just ordered a custom bucket of yellow and red bricks for my son's b-day on Thursday. And I had no idea I couldn't just call them Legos. And he's starting a Lego robotics class this week. And we like Legos a lot too.

I didn't know they were supposed to be called Lego bricks either. Legos always worked for me. We are really into the Harry Potter Legos at our house. So fun! Your cake is awesome!!

Sheri said...

lol I was never into Legos, but I always called them that too. :)

Ha! I like just plain Legos, but despite the sets. My kids are just too young for them! The parts are everywhere!
