It’s a good thing I double-checked this one, because you readers would have thought I was a bit Freudian when I claimed a story was about a Lego “penis” when it was in fact about a tail. It’s actually, Reuters’ fault.
Let me start from the beginning. This story claims that a Lego giraffe at a Lego theme park sort of thing in Berlin has repeatedly had its tail stolen. Apparently, the Germans love them some giraffe tail–so much so that it has been stolen four times so far. We’re not sure if it was returned or just replaced, but either way, ouch.
However, when I saw the story earlier, it was not a tail, it was a giraffe penis that was getting stolen. Which, from what we know about the Germans, makes a lot more sense. It was as if it was the same story, word for word, but the story now had replaced all penises with tails–in the story, that is.
Thanks to our friends at Regret the Error, I found out I am not, in fact, crazy. They really did publish that it was a giraffe penis that was stolen, then corrected it. Oh, you randy Reuters!
