Lego has just unveiled a new range of sets that focus on real heroes.

Rather than do the same old tie-in with Star Wars, Harry Potter or Indiana Jones … they have decided to focus on individuals who have made a real difference to our world and our understanding of that world.

This is the first model … apparently sales have not been as high as hoped πŸ™‚

hawkmain 1 by you.

Thanks to Tom for this. What a sick little genius you are!

if hes so fucking clever why does he speak with an accent straight out of speak and spell. its american for fucks sake surely mr clever wheels could make his computer speak with a less robotic voice because even my in car gps has a snappy english accent telling me the wrong fucking directions

Comment by andy@cynic

jeez you just sounded like the biggest twat in the universe andy.. if i was your in-car gps, i’d probably tell you the wrong fucking directions too.. although i’d probably do it in a hot latino accent, just to fuck with you. πŸ™‚

Harsh Lauren … bit harsh … especially because his comment made me laugh out loud.

Then again, if the prick has set me up for India, then he deserves all he gets, so lets reserve judgement just a little longer shall we? πŸ™‚

Gosh that’s a touch harsh Lauren. Andy has said far more insulting things on this blog and people have patted him on the back for it.
Of course my defence of his honor has nothing to do me being his employee in about 6 weeks. πŸ™‚

Comment by Pete

oh dear.

Comment by Marcus

huh? i was being harsh? wha?? i was just fuckin’ with andy and his in-car gps… i don’t care about stephen hawking at all, well, not enough to defend him on here anyway.

andy, i’m sorry if i offended you dear.

I suspect a ‘gotcha’ coming in a few hours Lauren πŸ™‚

[Remember this is a man who has survived 2 rather nasty divorces, he doesn’t ‘do’ offence – well, unless it’s him doing it to someone else]

Comment by Rob

Changing his voice to famous people would be fun.

What about Pedigree Chum Dog Food? Did you hear they called in the retrievers?

Comment by Rob

*groan* rob! that is more shocking than anything either andy or i have ever said… are you sure you’re not a dad?

Comment by lauren

Honestly Rob, that was awful.
It’s almost as bad as the one about how to intrique an idiot.

Comment by Rob Mortimer

Many years ago when I worked with Rob in London we were working on a project with Pedigree Chum.

One day he decided to call up the accounts department and scream the “retriever” joke down the phone to them then he hung up and went to lunch.

It speaks volumes about accountants that they didn’t see the (bad) joke and rang Pedigree to ensure their outstanding invoices were going to be paid.

As rumor has it, there was a period of 10 minutes where each side were throwing insults at eachother until the misundestanding was cleared up to which Robert was then called into our bosses office and screamed at for half an hour.

The joke is bad enough on a good day so it must of gone down like a lead balloon when he had to tell it to our hostile boss and I think he even got one of his numerous written warnings for it which goes to show his jokes haven’t improved but his professionalism has.

Comment by andy@cynic

Thank you Pete for that blast from my past … and Andy for that sign of deep friendship.

As the saying goes, with friends like these etc etc

Comment by Rob
