Only In The U.K.: TV Star, With Lots Of Help, Builds A House From Legos

This story couldn't be more English, if you agree with the view that the Brits can be somewhat eccentric:

James May, one of the "presenters" on the BBC's popular Top Gear program, is getting set to live (at least for a few days) in a home made from Lego blocks.

We like this video that was posted last month by a young man named Harry who took part in the construction. "James May really isn't doing that much," the kid says. And, as he adds, to build a Lego house "you get lots of people to build the bricks for you":

As Renee Montagne noted on Morning Edition, the house even has a "Lego loo."
