Larryism #32

Moe and Larry were 7 and 6 at the time, or thereabouts. We were at one of these fancy-shmancy Children's Museums, I think in Chicago (so this is about 8 or 9 years ago).

They had one of these rooms full of Duplo-style Legos. I don't know why that was such an attraction to my boys, since if they wanted to play in a room full of Duplo-style Legos, all they had to do was go into our basement. But this is where they wanted to be, so I let them play in there.

A little while later, Moe comes to get me, to show me his latest architectural masterpiece. Moe has always been good with Lego. He made this Lego AT AT from Star Wars that probably could have been turned into a real Lego model and sold to parents like me for $99.95. So I go in and see this model of an elaborate pyramid and Sphinx.

"It's the Sphinx," I say.

Larry doesn't miss a beat: "No, actually, it's pretty good."

I'm guessing Larry was being totally genuine?
