Giant Lego man washes ashore in Florida

legoman-florida.jpgA giant Lego man bearing the message "No Real Than You Are" washed ashore near Florida's Siesta Key on Tuesday (Oct. 25) and was discovered by a man who happened to be strolling the beach.

This has happened before. Three years ago, according to BoingBoing, giant Lego men appeared on beaches in Zandvoort, Holland and Brighton, England. The Florida Lego man, when stood up, revealed the name "Ego Leonard" and the number 8 emblazoned on his back.

Luckily, Ego has a homepage where he's posted this message:

"My name is Ego Leonard and according to you I come from the virtual world. A world that for me represents happiness, solidarity, all green and blossoming, with no rules or limitations.

"Lately however, my world has been flooded with fortune-hunters and people drunk with power. And many new encounters in the virtual world have triggered my curiosity about your way of life."

Alrighty then. Watch this gripping video of Ego Leonard standing on the beach like a modern day Colossus of Rhodes:
