So I got a box in the mail filled with 80 body parts

So yesterday I got a box of body parts in the mail and when I pieced them all together they were a bunch of angry cross-dressers.

I couldn’t make this shit up.

Lego sent me this to celebrate their new line or anniversary or something and I honestly have no idea what the hell to say here except that this pretty much sums up my entire life.  Other bloggers get invited to go on CNN or get free furniture.  I get an angry transvestite army.

Even my kid was like “Fucking-A, this shit is disturbing” except that she’s three so it was more like she picked up the girl/boy and said in a really deep, masculine voice “My name is Lori?” and then looked to me for guidance and I was all “I got nothin’, kid” and Victor couldn’t stop laughing.

And let me just go on record here as saying that I am a HUGE supporter of the transgendered community and I think Eddie Izzard in drag is 10 times hotter than Brad Pitt covered in nougat, but this is just bizarre.  There was not one face in the box that wasn’t the threatening moustachioed dude.

 

PS.  Someone just sent me the lego version of Eddie Izzard’s “cake or death”.  I’m still confused but at least it makes this post slightly more cohesive*.

*No, it really doesn’t really at all.

Update:  So it turns out that this angry moustachioed head is most often used in sets where he plays a patient about to undergo some sort of procedure.  Of course it is.

Also, I got a very nice response from Lego which said ” Each kit was supposed to contain an assortment of random parts; however, it looks like yours somehow consisted only of angry mustache faces.  Please know that this was not at all done intentionally or to freak anyone out in any way.”  I also heard from several other people who got packages from Lego and none of them contained the angry moustachioed man head.  So basically I control the entire market.  It’s a lot like cornering the market on gold, which is enviable and glamorous.  Only switch “gold” with “angry moustachioed heads”, and “enviable and glamorous” with “perplexing and mildly uncomfortable.”

  9. Anything Eddie Izzard rocks my world. I love his bit on the cunning use of flags. And about queues.

    My father saw him in NYC a month ago. I had a moment of panic when he called me, the day of the show, to tell me he was going. I was all like How fast can I make it to NYC? Could I get away with robbing someone for a ticket? OMG, how the hell am I going to get to NYC??? I NEED TO LEAVE RIGHT AWAY.

    I never made it to the show, but I heard it was a good one.

  18. I NEED some of these! Izzard is one of my favorite actors – I got to see his show live earlier this summer – amazing! But really, how can I get these legos?

  19. Well, I’d be pissed off too is someone sent me off before I had my upper lip waxed and I had to wear purple (pink?) sequins!

  20. Wait, are you sure this was just not a reader goofing on you?

    Or perhaps this was the Lego Hermaphrodite Special Edition. Did you not get the press release on that. I hear Toys ‘r Us is doing a major transgender day to kick this off.

    I like Ingrid’s idea. If I recall my son used to mix all the sets up anyway. Perhaps this was a child driven initiative!

    And that sentence is sort of disturbing.

    If you haven’t seen it yet, look up his piece on Darth Vader in the Death Star canteen. Pure genius.
    Er, Bloggess, there’s no denying your unusual status within the celebrity blogosphere. Just remember, there are kids in Africa who’d do anything to have a cross-dressing lego army… ok, maybe not.

    Noopster’s last blog post..Radical Tele-marketers and my fatal error

  37. I think the lego semi-dude in the overhalls is HAWT. Perhaps it’s the way Lego was able to properly depict transvestite immigrant farmers in their true light on a little inch-and-a-half plastic toy…? I don’t know. But this is definitely art.

  38. I’ll admit to making transgender Lego people as a kid by switching around the hair, bodies and faces. But to receive a whole box of Lego people and they all have that scary man face is just plain bizarre.

    T with Honey’s last blog post..How to remove a bat from your house

  39. I absolutely love how they have long hair and ponytails and shit. Goes perfectly with the mustaches and sequiny tops. Now what do you suppose has got them all upset? I think it’s because they weren’t given cute shoes to go with those sequins.

    “hey I got a great idea that will speak to sexually confused people”… “no, not people that think they might be gay, but people that have both parts”

    Where in that pitch was that “idea approver” going like “hey – that is so awesome!” i mean they have lego starwars, lego pirates, lego dinosaurs… why not have lego gender wars.

    great post – i laughed… and that video you sent was awesome.

    Aman’s last blog post..Updated comments

  68. Y’know, those figures wouldn’t be all that bad if it weren’t for the faces. I’m guessing someone typed in the wrong part number for the head. The question then becomes, whose head is that? Is it just “generic angry guy with cheesy porn-star mustache” or is does it have some cinematic tie-in? I think it’s pretty safe to assume that Lego doesn’t have a Ron Jeremy minifig.

  77. Oh, wait, I found it. A google image search for minifig brown mustache yielded a lot of images, one of which looks right. It’s called (unsurprisingly) “Minifig Head with Bushy Brown Eyebrows and Moustache Pattern” (3626bpx135). Details here: http://www.peeron.com/inv/parts/3626bpx135. Looks like it’s included in a lot of different sets including “King’s Castle” and “Escape from Privet Drive”. There’s nothing in the list even remotely like “Grumpy Cross-dresser Playset”.

    Steve’s last blog post..“All the parts of the internet”

  78. Holy crap, Steve. So basically this head is most often used as a frustrated patient about to undergo some sort of surgery.

    It’s always books, books, books. You try to tell them that you’re not really that person, you just play one on the internet and please send toys … but no.

    Anyway, now I have something to aspire to. And then regret having aspired to. And then mock other people for not having thought to have aspired to. This rocks.

    So I spend a bazillion dollars on legos and they send YOU the cool ones?!? What’s up with that.

  116. There’s a Lego Land right up the street from me. It would be worth the price of admission to get a set of my own. Maybe those are the “mistake” Lego people, like the Jelly Belly Flops?

    @Captain Dumb Ass- Hilarious!

  117. Now THAT? That’s your entry into the Pride parade float competition next June. So many options. I’m thinking a flatbed truck and hundreds of Lego Harleys in various shades of butch and femme.

    Nic’s last blog post..200!

  119. When I first looked I thought they were pink 70′s disco shirts. I was so relieved that it was really pink sequinned slut-tops with cleavage. (is anyone else disturbed by lego-cleavage?)

    And the guy next to the white shirt/red pants is all “What are YOU looking at?!”

    I would like a legovestite, too, please. :D

  124. Okay… you are the funniest person ever. You make me laugh, and that takes allot. And, your freakin’ readers… you are all a very funny bunch of loonies!! I LOVED how someone said they look like Tony Orlando, and Freddy Mercury!! They do.

    I almost think they look like a bunch a confused Mexican Nationalists. What set of Lego’s are these supposed to go with??
    Uy.

  125. Apparently MR. LADY had her own lego figurine now (besides the one Busy Dad’s son made for her), and she’s shopping it around. Don’t know what I’m talking about? Click here and scroll down a little to see the Mr Lego Lady.

    Just gotta’ say, though, that they do look a lot like a ninja army (except for the glittery lavender tops). And I love that the angry mustache man face is underneath hair that’s in a bun, etc. This is totally twisted.

  135. I can honestly say I would have never thought of cross dressing lego people until now. But considering the men and women were shaped the same, it’s a natural progression to get gender confused.

    Okay, I’m past the extreme Queen Lego Set jealousy, but, sweetie!!! Eddie Izzard? Christ in a rowboat, I have “Velvet Goldmine” on continuous loop in my house…ooh,now I got the vapors…

  137. Seriously. What is that? I’m trying to make sense of it all. Maybe they’re supposed to be army lego people…but then why the pink? And why is Lego sending you shit? What kind of a relationship do you have with them to where they just randomly send you they’re latest arrivals??

    I have to commend Lego for stepping out of the box though…it’s about time some companies out there started embracing the transgendered. They’re severly overlooked in the community.

    Lotta’s last blog post..Smurf Jizz and Teddy Bear Porn

  143. No explanation. There were also a pair of 3D glasses and a DVD with a one-minute commercial for legos (non-transvestites) in the box. That’s it. I’ve emailed the company twice asking what this means. No response.

    Curiouser and curiouser.

  144. Yes, but… Do you have a flag?

    I swear you couldn’t ask for better material if you paid for it.

    katelin’s last blog post..Fuzzy brain thoughts.

  146. I have to make a public mental note not meant to ostracise or embarass anyone. It would seem to me that about every fifth comment associated with maybe all of your blog comments ever describes how a perhaps otherwise normal person spews coffee or an alcoholic beverage uncontrolably all over their homes or offices as a result of your ninja-like, surprise-attack wittiness.

    That’s all, I just wanted to point that out. Maybe there are some Kegel type throat exercises these people could do to avoid this in the future.

  147. I freakin’ love these legos. Love ‘em! I’ve been looking for a way to teach my kids about alternative lifestyles, but since we live out in the sticks where all the gays are banished as soon as they turn 18, never to be heard of again, it hasn’t been easy.
    Who knew Legos would solve the problem for me?
    Plus, not all bloggers get invited to do things. Take me, for example. CNN hasn’t called yet. Bastards.

    (And I agree that Eddie Izzard, in drag or not, is way yummier than Brad Pitt, nougated or not.)

  158. How the hell else was lego gonna get rid of those heads? At least they had the presence of mind to send them to YOU!

  159. What I want to know is how did you get on the mailing list for free Lego?!? I’d gladly trade my place in the “we’ve got a book written by a man about fatherhood and need people to review it who don’t have a vagina” list for a spot in the “free hermaphrodite lego” list.

    I’m not sure what that says about me, though.

    Anissa@Hope4Peyton’s last blog post..Playing Their Reindeer Games

  166. Just got a very nice response from Lego: “…Each kit was supposed to contain an assortment of random parts; however, it looks like yours somehow consisted only of angry mustache faces. Please know that this was not at all done intentionally or to freak anyone out in any way. In light of all of this, we do appreciate the humor you have put into your post and appreciate even more the fun your readers seem to be having.”

    They also even offered to switch out my transvestites for a wider selection of torsoes and heads but it turns out that my Uncle Frank was right. Once you go transvestite, you never go back. Seems like that should rhyme.

  167. Way too funny! I have a 2 1/2 year old daughter. Any chance I can get some of those Legos too? Want to make sure she’s prepared for Kindergarten! LOL

  169. “…it looks like yours somehow consisted only of angry mustache faces.”

    Now can they explain why a legos kit would even come with an angry mustache face man? Is it the Threatening Office Atmosphere Play Set? And why was there only lego people in the box? No extra legos to make little buildings or cars or anything. Wierd.

  172. Oh my God, that’s funny. Why do they even make angry mustache guy? Even without the cleavage, he would still end up in our reject pile I think.

    Clearly Lego was trying to give you something to write about?

    But the clevage thing is throwing me off.

    Maybe the Lego-people are using my sister-in-law as a prototype? She has a mustache.

    I am jealous of all the Lego toys, tho. My kids would be in heaven. Imagine how clean they would all be, in the bath with my three youngins.

    Shoegirl’s last blog post..A Black Cloud With a Side of Rotten Meat

  179. Okay, so this is an odd way to promote the third decade of the “mini-fig” but even the transgendered deserve their own Lego set.

    You can’t shield children forever either and at least you were around when your daughter learned about cross dressing. My kid learned it at camp from two kids who told her how their dad waits until their mom isn’t home and they all play dress up with her underwear.

    My daughter’s stuffed penguin dressed in drag for a week after that and she would say “buts he’s really still a ‘he’, Mom”

  180. Either trannie legos, promoting the new season of “Swingers” either way, would’ve made childhood much more entertaining.

    And, while we have close to 5.2 million pounds of Lego in our home, we have none of those little s/he minifigs. Maybe they’ve decided to scrap the Star Wars theme and go with a new Tranny line? It’s about damn time those Swedes embraced the transgendered community.

    What’s most confusing is… under what circumstance would any LEGO of any gender ever need to wear that hideous outfit?? What is even happening there? Is that a sparkly skort I spy??

    Also, $50 says the LEGO Intern was behind “angry mustache faces” and “freak anyone out.” Unless that’s just company rhetoric, in which case they’re even cooler than I thought.

As far as I’m concerned you’re a huge conceited bitch, if you’ve even done a hundredth of the shit that Mother Teresa did for other people I’ll be shocked, especially seeing as you have time to bitch about your free Lego transvestites. You’re an absolute whore and I hop you die a slow and painful death you stupid bitch. Feel free to email me back and explain yourself, I want to hear what I’m sure is a massively fucked up reason for saying such a thing.

    I’m hoping Poster #271 went back and read a post or two and felt like a total douche canoe and is now pretending to be someone else and posting something more interesting.

    Also, pretty sure Mother Theresa would be laughing about transgender lego. Its a commonly known fact she was a Rocky Horror Picture Show fan and collected lego in order to recreate scenes from the movie.

  311. Dude, do you kiss your Mother Teresa with that mouth?

  312. #271 may know who Mother Theresa is, but (s)he apparently doesn’t know who The Bloggess is. Which means (s)he lives in a hole, because how do you not know The Bloggess!?!? Maybe when (s)he finds out she insulted one of the purest and funniest and best people on the Internet, (s)he’ll reconsider calling you such names, which is very un-Mother Theresa like in the first place. #271, you could take a cue from Mother Theresa about letting God do the judging.

  358. So, after a year and a half, am I the only one wondering how you go about getting a free box of Legos? Those lil’ buggers are expensive! (BTW, we seem to be polar opposites in personality, but I can’t stop reading your blog! You make me giggle…)

  359. Mother.Fuck! That is the funnies thing *ever*.

  360. Wait, who’s Mother Teresa?

  361. LOL, I already stumbled upon this ages ago, and then stupidly didn’t start reading your blog until this past week. But I’m so glad you linked to this post, because still could not stop laughing at the angry-lego-transvestites!

  362. One. of. my. most. favorite. posts. evah! i love the tranny legos. bestest thing. i think you should make a necklace out of them and wear it to blogher. totally. or a belt. youre tiny. that would work.

    p.s. can i have one? just one? they remind me of my brother. kinda. nevermind.

  363. Am considerably late to this party, but have three comments for #271.

    1. When expressing misdirected and nonsensical hostility in the form of a death-wish toward strangers on the Internet (and Jenny is, most certainly, a stranger to you, considering your ridiculous and completely incorrect characterization of her) it is best—if one wishes to be taken seriously—to employ some sort of proofreading and/or spell-checking mechanism(s) to ensure that one, indeed, manages to make one’s point without making one’s self look like an idiot. I “hop” you understand what I am saying.

    2. Jenny is the LEAST conceited person I know, in real life or cyber-existence, and, if you were literate (see: comment 1) and intelligent enough to understand her blog(s), you would know this.

    3. You’re an asshole.

  366. I also hop I will learn to spell “relieved”

  367. Are you going to respond to comment #271? If you do – I’m sure that it will be totally awesome and that Victor will not agree with your response – just guessing.

  368. Tee Hee Mom, too funny that’s why I read this blog witty humor

  369. @comment 271 LOL, you are a true douche-canoe. Thanks for the lulz!

  370. Lmao that was the best hate mail/comment ever..and your response priceless.
    I love you Jenny!
    I”hop” to see more angry comments.
    still giggling.

  371. No, Jenny, I think comment #271 is MY mom. Sorry. She’s nutz. I have no idea how she learned to use the internet, though. She can’t even figure out how to use a CD player.

    WEIRD.

    Oh shit! Maybe my real Mom gotten eaten by pod people and that is why she is nutz, can’t use a CD player, but can use the internet?

    Fuck, that would explain A LOT about my childhood…

    Wait, yelling first doesn’t move my comment to the top? Dammit!

  375. Don’t people like #271 realize how silly it is to revere Mother Teresa so rabidly? Bitch didn’t even make it to heaven: http://www.theonion.com/articles/mother-teresa-sent-to-hell-in-wacky-afterlife-mixu,973/

  376. #323 , you’d be surprised. I see it everyday, EVERY FUCKING DAY, in grown ass, sometimes well-educated, adults.

    Funny, this post is how I discovered The Bloggess via Geekologie.

  377. I would love to receive a creepy box of travestite legos (legoes?) in the mail! You know you’ve arrived in the blogosphere when…

  378. this is amazing. How in the world do I get a box. what a hoot!

  379. That post made me laugh hard. Too hard. I read it while at work and the giggle fits set in and pretty soon there were tears (of joy) and uncontrollable laughter. My boss came over to check on me because he thought I was having convulsions or something. Then he just thought I was insane, kinda lame, and totally unprofessional. But it was worth it!

  380. Oh man, I straight laughed through this whole post. Glad to have discovered you! Did they send a replacement set of non-mustachioed faces for you to even the population out with at least?

  381. **This Eddie Izzard Lego skit… is 1000 times better**

    *Thanks for the great laugh too!

  382. Lego accidentally sends blogger a box of transvestite Legos to review…

    This is an old post, but I just ran accross it. In 2008, Lego sent out Lego ……

  383. [...] I’m always amazed when I read other people’s blogs and I hear that they had someone send them something awesome for free.  My friend Nicole was sent a couple of pairs of awesome boots, for example.  Kelly Oxford was sent boots, too.  The Bloggess was sent body parts.  [...]

  384. I fell of my futon laughing so hard! I would love to have that set of legos-

  385. First, yes I know I’m a bit late to this whole ordeal…

    Second, Comment #271 is obviously by some ignorant pseudo-religious zealot, because what REAL religious zealot would use language like that or wish death on someone.

    Third, Mother Theresa wasn’t the ‘saint’ everyone wants to make her out to be.

    Lastly, I damned near peed myself laughing at Jenny’s reply.

    This is why she wins at the internet.

    ShredderFeeder recently posted It’s raining….

  386. [...] Husband is at least as excited about this as I am. He is certain that I’ll be getting transgender Lego pieces in the mail any day now, that being his yardstick for determining that I have “arrived” in the blogosphere. [...]

  387. Love this post, but the now broken image links break my heart. :(

  388. A round of applause for your post.Thanks Again.

    Ooops – someone got fired for that balls up I’m sure.

    Reminds me of a family friend who started working in a chocolate factory (before you ask, she is not an Oompa Loompa). She had to make two halves that would eventually fit together. They were then spewed out onto a conveyor belt that she then had to piece together to make one chocolate piece.
    Except she had a brain freeze and only made one half, so when the conveyor belt started hurling chocolate pieces at her, she couldn’t get them to match up.
    But the pieces. kept. coming.

    It was an *actual* ‘I Love Lucy’ moment.

    Moral of the story: we got 3 shopping bags FULL of chocolate halves.
    (Which is not really a moral but the only good thing I took away from the experience. Shut up; I was 8 years old.)
