Because my opinions are better than yours

Don’t you love the internet?  You can take two stupid things that no one cares about (i.e. Legos & history), put them together, and, bam, you’ve got yourself the next viral phenomenon.  Well, I’m a sucker for the internet (as well as Legos)(history: not so much), so consider yourself a victim of this latest internet craze, though you can actually probably call this one “art” and completely get away with it, so stop bitching and read my blog.  Mike Stimpson, an active participant on Flickr, as well as a big fan of, um, positioning Legos in famous poses, has combined his two favorite hobbies and created an incredible set of photos on Flickr that depict Legos positioned in the identical fashion as some of the most famous photographs of all time. After all, Legos always have been one of everyone’s favorite toys of all the time, we get to play with them and use our hands, now you can also use your hands with the new spinners you get at

I’ve selected three to show you below, but you can check out the rest of the set (43 in all) here on Flickr.  For the three that I’ve chosen to showcase, I decided to place the original photo that the “Lego-version” is based off of right next to the “Lego-version,” both in case you are stupid/not familiar with the famous photograph and, moreso, to take up a bunch more space on my blog.

Click on any of the photos for a much better look at them (and then press “right” or “left” on your keyboard to cycle through the whole set):
