    3 days and nights to build the first time tells me that it'll be one day back on its feet.

    That reminds me of one of my favorite videos...

    The attempted restoration by an elderly parishioner at the very bottom of the article killed me. The "restored" face appears to have the "You tried." look on it's face.

    So that's what the BBC meant by Lego violence.

    At least the parents of the 4 year boy offered to pay for the damage as opposed to saying "accidents happen".

    ^ This is true.

    (Although no Lego was actually damaged.)

    A cynic would suggest its had FAR more attention having been destroyed than it would have done if left in one piece.

    What, what wat, waat, waaat, wooOOT!?! Glue!? Glue! Lego and glue?!? Are you nuts!?
    No! Just no.

    The destruction of that Lego statue was not nice, pretty awful actually, but besides the agony for the Lego builder(s) can relatively 'easily' be rebuild. Maybe some damaged bricks will need replacement, but then it is restored to perfection. Contrary to:
    "In 2006, an adult visitor tripped over his shoelace and destroyed three 300-year-old Chinese Qing Dynasty vases in Fitzwilliam Museum in Cambridge in the UK."
    which even though it is absolutely horrible and very sad, still made me LMAO when I read it.

    And as much as this made me cringe:
    "In 2012, an elderly parishioner stunned Spanish cultural officials with an alarming and unauthorised attempt to restore a prized Jesus Christ fresco. Ecce Homo (Behold the Man) by Elias Garcia Martinez had held pride of place in the Sanctuary of Mercy Church near Zaragoza for more than 100 years. Cecilia Gimenez took her brush to it after years of deterioration due to moisture - but her "restoration" rather failed to impress."  
    this also reminded me of some funny sketch with Rowan Atkinson as I believe Mister Bean smutching up some painting too, well actually he totally FUBARed it.

    The cynic would have a point impossible to refute ;)
