$400 Well Spent


The trench run will only take a second.

Joe.

If you don't know Joe, you can click here to find out all about him.

Friggin guy cracks me up.

Here's an Instant Message I got from Joe:

********************
Joe: I don't think I can come into work next week

midgetmanofsteel: why?

********************
He attaches a link to here.

Which brings you to this:


A $400 Lego Death Star.

********************

midgetmanofsteel: lol

midgetmanofsteel: holy shit

midgetmanofsteel:
four hundred bucks?!?!

midgetmanofsteel: 88% would recommend this product


*******************

This, of course, begs the question:

midgetmanofsteel: recommend it for...what?

*pause*

Joe: um. fucking awesomeness?

********************

Fucking awesomeness.

There was NO better answer.

I laughed for, like, 5 minutes.

********************

Joe: the xwing trench run will only take a second or so now

********************

Good point. Had Lego Luke known about this years ago, that movie could have been a LOT shorter.

I guess Joe isn't the only guy who thinks this is cool.

I also found this:



Fucking hilarious.

That's nine, count 'em, NINE "OMG's" on that picture.

Which is less than the number I'd be saying if I spent $400 on the damn thing.

Just a guess here, but Joe:

Lives with his mom
Wears Suspenders
Still has acne
Can use his glasses to start forest fires
Never touched a boobie
Is a chronic masterbator

Close?

OMG all right. I love it. I want it. It is fantastic. Gimme big Lego any day. I am currently rebuilding the Harry Potter Lego kits I bought for my son (who is not interested in Lego at all). But this one is uber yummy. All those levels. Oh, I have to go back and look at it. Sigh.....

AngryMan said...

A friend of mine bought that and said it was the coolest thing ever. It's worth the $400, trust me.

C.Rag said...

AngryMan doesn't have any friends.
He sold his kidney to buy that for himself.

The Doggy Did It said...

Wow...my first car only cost $400. It was a sweet ride for 3 weeks.

I hate legos, have you even stepped on a lego? Pretty sure if you stepped on that thing you would need your foot amputated.

Jen said...

Yeah, that Lego set is the coolest ever until you lose ONE little piece and then can't make the damn death star ever again.

Mimzie Beaumont said...

I'm sorry. I thought I was here for Moog's blog. I didn't realize I stumbled upon nerdswhodontgetlaid.com

Narm said...

Can we get more appearances from Joe in the blog? Maybe a co-authored post. I need more Joe in my life.

Becky..AMHW said...

You know, when I was a kid I made my Death Stars out of mud and twigs...AND WE LIKED IT THAT WAY.

Mike: Actually Joe is going to be a proud daddy shortly, and currently has my "Monty Python and the Holy Grail" movie at his house. NO POINTS FOR YOU!

Linda: Do you follow Mike's description above?

Angry: Dude. No Lego set is worth $400. Unless it's a $400 Lego Scarlett Johansson model.

C.Rag: I know. I bought it and have the kidney currently on sale on Craigslist for $425. SCORE!

Doggy: Someday, I will retell the horrid tale of my son's Lego Indiana Jones set. Once this bottle of anti-depressants is gone.

Jen: No kidding - worst case, though, you can take Luke's arm or something and put it somewhere else. Like, on Leia's bum. AH! THE COMEDY!

Mimzie: All are welcome...all are welcome. And don't mind the stares you're getting....they're just nerds.

Mike said...

You know, I tried that answer (fucking awesomeness) when my wife asked me why I was about to spend 199.95 on a life-size Barbie Benton love doll.

For the record, "fucking awsomeness" did not stop her from hitting me with the broom just had just been riding around on.

rs27 said...

I bought a 350 dollar Lego OJ Simpson.

Not worht it.

Raspootin said...

Just one question:

Does it come assembled?

3800 pieces OMG

Prin said...

Remind me again how 4.3 on 5 is 88%?

omg x 9, I just broadcast that I'm nerdier than the death star fans, didn't I?

HeyJoe said...

Includes "all-new Dianoga™ trash compactor monster!"

I think I just came.

Evil Genius said...

That does it. You and Joe are no longer allowed to play together.

He won't have time to play with you anyway, what with building his new lego toy and then washing and pressing his Yoda costume for the next Star Wars convention.

Malach the Merciless said...

Jesus Christ, you could watch all six movies in the time it took to build that sucker

AngryMan said...

From what I heard about that thing, it's totally worth it.

meleah rebeccah said...

Joe does sound fukcing hilarious.

And that 400$ lego death star when put together will be Fucking Awesomeness.

catscratch diva said...

I'm now taking donations for one of my very own.

Thanks.

Since I first read this post I shared my enthusiasm for the Lego creation with my husband. He found my interest in spending money on such a toy as disturbing as when I once watched Star Trek for ten hours straight one Saturday. It is lonely being a female poindexter.
