Lego Website Lectures Anyone Who Thinks It's Legos

from the chill-out dept

Legos may be a fun toy, but it seems that some of the marketing folks there are fairly humorless when it comes to their website. The company wants to protect its brand, which is fine, but if you accidentally type in legos.com rather than the more appropriate lego.com, the company doesn't just forward you to the proper website -- it gives you a lecture on how to properly spell their name. Oh yeah, they also want to focus on the fact that the brand is completely capitalized, but we're not going to give in to that either.

    Lego? Who cares?

    Who the fuck cares about legos anymore, ever since they started coming out with these pre-fab blocks that have just about zero creativity-inducing quality?
    Buying new lego is an investment in brainwashing.
    Building stuff with the old school blocks will make you a genius.
