Fla. town shocked as Lego man washes ashore

On the lighter side…

The peaceful seaside community of Sarasota, Fla. was rocked recently by an aquatic invasion. The sole member of the landing party answered questions only by a mute, unwavering gaze, and a message emblazoned on his shirt: “NO REAL THAN YOU ARE.” Of course, bystanders and police officers could not have expected their new guest to offer up much of an explanation as to his sudden appearance on a Siesta Key beach. This is mostly because the man before them was not a man at all, but an 8-foot-tall, 100-pound Lego minifigure sculpture. The fiberglass Lego man was found in the surf off Siesta Key by a man walking on the beach.  This is not the first time one of these large Lego men has been found wallowing in the surf. One was found in the Netherlands in 2007, and another was discovered in the English sea town of Brighton a year later. The Sarasota Lego man has sadly been unable to take advantage of the great kayaking and beaches in the Keys, as he remains in police custody as “found property.” It appears that the Sarasota Police Department does not accept treasure chests full of plastic gold coins as bail.
