Lego gets ready - the first 50 bricks

To celebrate its 50th birthday, Lego, world famous makers of little bricks are to recreate a copy of The Great Wall of China, the only man-made structure to be seen from outer space.

Although the location of the wall is being kept secret at the moment, planning permission is being sought in several locations, including Gaza, Babylon, Jericho, Hong Kong and the Australian Desert. It is estimated that it will need 50 Trillion (That's 50 billion, billion) bricks to build the structure which will be 50 foot high and 50 feet wide and guess what? It will take 50 students 50 years to complete!

It is not known if al the bricks will be the same colour or whether it will be psychedelic, but it is hoped that like its 3,000 year-old brother, the structure will also be seen from outer space too.

Helmut Ogel, (52), the Danish inventor of Lego is still alive and told In Seine News;

"I am looking forward to the stunt (the world's biggest advert) and who knows, there may be some extra terrestrial observer who vould like to buy my product."

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