• Wacky friggin’ Germans. A 30-centimeter-long giraffe penis that is part of a Lego display outside of the Legoland Discovery Centre on Potsdamer Platz has been stolen again for the fourth time.

My Legos Imperial Star Destroyer was only like 3,000 pieces and that took me forever! Yes, I constructed a Star Wars Legos set – you wanna fight about it? [Yahoo!/AP]
