People in Denmark no longer wear those Viking helmets

It's been confirmed that significantly more than half of all buildings constructed in Denmark since 2001 have been built from Lego.

The figure is actually 97%.

Lego is the Danish company that produces the children's interlocking plastic building bricks toy that took the world by storm when it was first released onto the market in 1947.

Since then, Lego production has risen year-on-year, and spread all around the globe. It's estimated that, in China, nobody owns any genuine Lego, but a rival company, Rego, churns out enough interlocking plastic building bricks so that, from a distance, Beijing looks red, yellow, blue, green, and white.

Back in Denmark, Lego has changed the landscape of the building and construction industry for good. Indeed, many people now just drive down to the Lego store in a hired Lego van, and load up a huge quantity of bricks to take them away, in order to construct houses to their own design.

When the owner becomes bored, it's easy - and fun - to just tear the property down and start all over again from scratch!

A Lego spokesman said, last week, that the company hopes that, by 2035, at least 50% of Denmark's population will be Legopeople.

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
