Magical Realism In Action!

Even with all of today's problems, there just seems to be something so right with a world where an eight-foot-tall Lego man can mysteriously wash up on a beach in the Netherlands.

[Since his initial appearance, he's become less mysterious: the enigmatic "NO REAL THAN YOU ARE" message carried on his T-shirt seems to lead to this artist's website (maybe someday it'll recover from "Bandwith Limit Exceeded"), and he's been previously spotted at a Dutch dance festival. I was hoping that the Lego man was the first step in a surrealist prank, with a different giant-sized Lego piece washing up on the beach each day ...]

I love the idea of a surrealist prank. In fact, I'm going to think of the public art in Berkeley as a surrealist prank. That makes it a *lot* more tolerable. (I love my town, but the blue concrete projectile-vomited vertically outside the BART station is not art, no matter what the Public Art Commission says.)
