I love Legos. There, I said it. Lego is probably one of the most adaptable toys in the world, an internationally recognized brand whose popularity stems from its simplicity. Why, just this year it became “the world’s most powerful brand” according to the valuation consultancy firm Brand Finance, displacing Ferrari.
Think about that. Lego is a more valuable brand than the exotic sports car company. Not bad for a bunch of blockheads!
If you have paying attention at all, you would probably have heard that Pope Francis I will be in Philadelphia for his first visit to the United States, and a priest spent the last ten months preparing for this papal visit by building a Lego replica of the Vatican. Here, you can see Reverend Bob Simon’s magnum opus for His Holiness, available for tourists to see at the Franklin Institute. And here I thought that the replicas of various cities around the world from Legoland was awesome!
It just goes to show that being geeky transcends all differences, including faith. Check out the Lego nun with a selfie stick. I bet IP is more amused about that than I am.
This is just something so cool that I wanted to share it with all of you. Below is a video of the Associated Press’s interview with Reverend Simon. Play well, Reverend!
For which of you, desiring to build a tower, does not first sit down and count the cost, whether he has enough to complete it?
