A question of relative normalcy

Postby SavaTheAggie » Wed Aug 17, 2005 5:20 am

Two questions:

Where is an unassuming, soft-spoken, middle aged man given rock star status?

Where is it socially acceptable to ask the owner of a billion dollar, multi-national company to pose with a child's toy?

One answer:

Brickfest.

You owe me, Nate ;)

:shock:

I didn't know who that person was in the picture (Well I know the name of LEGO's owner, but not what he looks like). Doesn't look like the owner of a multi-million dollar international company! Looks very down to earth.

But to have your sig fig in the hands of Kjeld Kristiansen? Wow. Not many people can claim that!

Hey Nate.

The recent NWBC photoshoot made me think of it. Would you want this specific minifig?

Image

He's buried somewhere but I have a pretty good idea where. I'm willing to trade.

That is, of course, unless you think Darkie would have more fun with him. ;)
