LEGO is not a tool of Satan

I am not proud of every citation I receive, and I certainly do not agree to Father Slawomir Kostrzewa who used our study to conclude that the increased diversity of LEGO faces has “…compounded their evil potential”. Yes, we have been able to show that the number of angry faces has increased, but our study did not investigate what effect this may have on children. We simply cannot provide any evidence one way or the other.

Father Slawomir Kostrzewa continues that “These toys can have a negative effect on children. They can destroy their souls and lead them to the dark side.” He really should know that the only way to join the dark side is by submitting to Darth Vader.

But then again, the report was published on April 1st, so maybe this is just a joke?
