At a packed press conference in NYC's Grand Central Station last night, Mona Lisa (yep, the one who's the subject of Leonardo da Vinci's famous 1503 painting) told the world of her outrage to find out that someone had made a Lego likeness of her famous face. "It's enough to curl your hair," the famous lady said, unsuccessfully holding back a torrent of tears.
"Imagine," she said with a shudder of disgust, "someone thought it was okay to reduce my countenance to a bunch of little plastic, um, thingies." With Nat King Cole's famous 1950 hit record Mona Lisa playing in the background, Ms. Lisa said she plans on taking legal action. Famed women's rights attorney Gloria Allred will be representing her, she told the crowd.
Native New Yorkers and visitors alike were stunned by the famous lady's presence, but not too stunned to snap photo after photo with their cellphones. One onlooker, hurrying home from an office holiday party, couldn't stop rubbing his eyes and mumbling, "I knew I shouldn't have had that last drink."
Mona Lisa stayed for a half hour to sign autographs, but then she begged off, saying, "It's time for me to dump this medieval garb and relax in a pair of jeans, a sweatshirt, and a ski jacket."
Rumor is that the famous lady had plans to hop a subway downtown to visit Little Italy. A friend revealed, "She eats sweets when she's upset. Right now, she's in need of some cannoli and gelato."
