Reasons for the Empty LEGO Table:
QUICK NOTE: Most bookstores now have a "Lego Table," a neat little place for kids to play with Lego blocks (encouraging a toy purchase). The table is short, round, and contains six deep compartments stocked with oversized Legos. Hundreds of children play with these blocks each week, and periodically - like any popular public toy - those Legos need to be run through the dishwashers to avoid the next HOT ZONE outbreak.
With that in mind, here are some fun (fictional) suggestions for why the Legos might be missing. Imagine being a customer, and overhearing two booksellers talking to each other, unbeknownst that you are listening <eg>:
- 1. Do we have any idea how long the nest was there?
- 2. Well, I suppose those little holes in the blocks are the perfect place for eggs.
- 3. Yeah, But how could it have bitten a child? I mean, not to sound harsh, but why wouldn't it have used it's stinger?
- 4. Well that's fifty shades of disgusting.
- 5. Oh, God...and to think of how long it went unrefrigerated.
- 6. You know, that's why we have a diaper changing station in the restroom. And a trash can for that matter. And I'm sorry, but did you say a colostomy bag?
- 7. Holy shit. I mean, we all thought that sound was a baby's rattle.
- 8. I can't believe there was enough blood for a sample. Are we sure it was HIV?
- 9. Ok, I know it's gross, but just out of curiosity, how many Legos was she able to fit inside?
- 10. I know you can make your own cars, trucks, houses, city buildings, Star Wars playlets, Harry Potter castles, and even pirate ships out of Legos. But this has to be the first time ever that someone made toilet paper. (Chuckling.) And they used both white and red pieces...
