Overnight/early-morning open thread: The iPhone 3L (Lego) edition

September 28, 2009, 9:09 PM · Planning a visit to Legoland? What better way to call for information than...

Lego iPhone

The Lego iPhone!

Some backstory: Brian built this from various Lego spare bricks, and it's exactly the same size as a regular iPhone. Last night, he decided to play a prank on his mother, and take the "iPhone" into the bath with him. Mom walks in, ready for hair-washing inspection, and sees Brian playing with what looks from 10 feet away exactly like her iPhone.

Much hilarity ensued.

In retrospect, Brian and I decided that he really should have dropped it in the tub, to push the Mom completely over the edge. And... we should have used the Flip to record the whole thing.

Yeah, we're gonna pay for this, and probably soon. Mom is likely plotting as I write.

Anyway, it's the overnight open thread. Post in the comments if any news breaks before I return Tuesday.
