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 bricks

    They're not "legos" (grief, that was hard to write!), they're "LEGO bricks" (bricks made by the LEGO company). Using the term "one lego, two legos" is like saying "one sheep, two sheeps" - just makes you sound ignorant.
