Bricks no longer legal

CCN (Crazy Cal News) - New York - Nathan Sawaya was a promising lawyer until the Bush administration reduced American business to absolutely nothing. Now he has to build everything out of LEGO blocks. In fact, everything in the room is made of LEGO; a cash register, a monkey, a bowl of fruit, a vase of flowers, his bed, his house.

"I was going to build my house with brick, but President Bush said that bricks took too many explosives to bring down. He said that he learned that in 9/11," said Sawaya. "I worked with great people at the law firm, but it became clear to me what I had to do.

"Has it been a challenge to make ends meet?" asked Cal Jennings.

"New York corporate attorneys are known for working the long hours. I find myself working long hours now as well, but I had to get two additional jobs to support my family, and now I can only afford to build things out of LEGO blocks. I was afraid that she wouldn't like the LEGO flowers, but she's been a good sport about things. She understands how hard I have to work now."

"What was the hardest thing to build?" asked Cal Jennings.

"I built a functioning industrial air conditioner. That was pretty hard," said Sawaya.

More and more families have had to get additional jobs and start building with LEGO. Reporter Cal Jennings suspects that LEGO is tied to the Corrupt Bastards Club, but the investigation is still pending.
