This is a question Lego

Battered wonders, "What amazing stuff have you got up to with Lego?" Or just tell us about the time you got a Lego brick stuck up your privates.

All people referring to 'Legos' will be shot at down. Or dawn. Your choice.

... Japanese submarine slammed 2 x 4 brick torpedoes into our side, chief. It was comin' back, from the island of Tinian to Laytee, just delivered the Lego. The Hiro-Chima Lego.
Eleven hundred minifigs went into the water. Vessel went down in twelve minutes. Didn't see the first plastic shark for about a half an hour. Grey. Thirteen studder. You know how you know that when you're in the water, chief? You tell by lookin' from the dorsal to the tail.
What we didn't know... Was our Lego mission had been so secret, no instruction booklet had been sent. They didn't even list us in the catalogues for a week.
Very first light, chief. The sharks come cruisin'. So we clicked ourselves into tight groups. You know it's... kinda like ol' 2 x 2 stud squares in battle like a, you see on a calendar, like the battle of Waterloo.
And the idea was, the plastic shark comes to the nearest minifigure and that minifig, he'd start poundin' and hollerin' and screamin' and sometimes the shark would go away. Sometimes he wouldn't go away.
Sometimes that shark, he looks right into you. Right into your eyes. You know the thing about a Lego shark, he's got...lifeless eyes, plastic eyes, like a doll's eyes.
When he comes at ya, doesn't seem to be livin'. Until some kid snaps the mouth down and those plastic eyes roll over white. And then, ah then you hear that terrible high pitch screamin' and the ocean turns yellow and spite of all the poundin' and the hollerin' they all come in and take you all to pieces again.
Y'know by the end of that first dawn, lost a hundred minifigures! I don't know how many sharks, maybe a thousand! I don't know how many minifigs, they averaged six an hour.
On Thursday mornin' chief, I bumped into a friend of mine, Herbie Robinson from Cleveland. Baseball player, boson's mate. Series 3 Minifigure. I thought he was asleep, reached over to wake him up. Bobbed up and down in the water, just like a kinda top. Up ended. Well... Some kid had pulled off his legs.
Noon the fifth day, Mr. Hooper, a Lockheed Ventura saw us, he swung in low and he saw us. He's a young pilot, a lot younger than Mr. Hooper, anyway he saw us and come in low. And three hours later a big fat Vacuum cleaner comes down and start to pick us up, brick by brick.
You know that was the time I was most frightened? Waitin' for my turn.
I'll never put on a lifejacket again.
So, eleven hundred minifugres went in the water, three hundred and sixteen minifigs come out, the Vacuum cleaner took the rest, June the 29, 1985.
Anyway, we delivered the Lego.
