Giant Lego man found in Dutch sea


Wed Aug 8, 2007 3:04PM EDT

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

Workers at a drinks stall rescued the 2.5-meter (8-foot) tall model with a yellow head and blue torso.

"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."

The toy was later placed in front of the drinks stall.

lol- You'd think something like that would be difficult to go missing. Crazy! Has anyone called SVU? Maybe he's the child of some even larger ill woman at Lego Land and she dumped the body because she couldn't care for him! Or he had a gambling problem and was heavily in debt to a plastic loan shark from Toy Story. (Or, it could be that I just watch too much Law & Order ;) )
