Flotsam and Jetsam. Stuff that is washed up on beaches.
Or perhaps there may be something more sinister behind this story.
Think Troy, think giant wooden horse, think invasion.
This giant, smiling Lego man has been washed up onto the beach at the Dutch resort of Zandvoort.
Workers at a drinks stall rescued the 2.5-metre tall model, which had a yellow head and blue torso.
“We saw something bobbing about in the sea and we decided to take it out of the water,” said a stall worker. “It was a life-sized Lego toy.” A woman nearby added: “I saw the Lego toy floating towards the beach from the direction of England.“
The toy was later placed in front of the drinks stall. There is no report of a guard being placed on it overnight. The same mistake Priam made in Troy.
It has been over 70 years since England invaded Europe. Is this the start of the overthrow of the European Union?
