Scott's Tip Of The Day: If porn sites mysteriously appear in your web browser history, Legos are not to blame.
Dear Lego, My name is Scott, and my son is a long time Lego user. He loves your legos. He is 14-years old. Lately, my son has been telling me about some unusual behavior with his Lego sets. I recently purchased him a pirate ship lego set. My son claims late at night, the Lego people have been leaving the pirate ship and have been going on my computer and looking at pornographic pictures on the internet. I checked my internet history, and sure enough, it's true. I definitely didn't view these sites, so the only logical explanation is the lego people included in your set did this. Have you ever had similar reports of lego people walking around at night? How come there is no warning on the box? Do you think if i purchase some female lego characters, they will stop going on my computer and remain in the pirate ship? Please advise, as I am very troubled. Thank you.

Apparently Legos are inanimate objects. Who would have guessed? The big question is who has been looking at porn on my computer, when I have been asleep? Any ideas? Hit me up at firstname.lastname@example.org and let me know!
