Hidden jokes are sometimes the best part of MOCs (my own creations). An elaborate space station that has a Jar Jar Binks minifigure in a perilous position. The back of a seemingly normal storefront that hides a disturbingly realistic S&M scence.

The jokes are easy to miss. Some are hidden, purposefully. Others are like a game of Where's Waldo? when you don't know what Waldo looks like. A political columnist for the Edmonton Journal recently discovered one of these types of jokes inside a 120,000 brick replica of the Alberta Legislature.

In a story that vacillates between investigative reporting and good humor, we learn the story of how Darth Vader and eight stormtroopers came to stand on the lawn outside the Alberta "Legoslature." Here's to hoping everybody gets the joke...
