11. Oh, it's not in "fun" TLG (The LEGO Group) takes brand dilution VERY seriously
And "LEGO" is one of the most recognizable brands in the world.

15. I'd bet that they got some negative feedback about the tone of the first one that was simply
trying to educate people. People don't really want to be lectured, they just want their damned legos, and so TLG probably decided to take the more subtle approach to the issue (of brand dilution).

13. They recognize Lego but not X-mas!
Edited on Mon Jan-28-08 10:39 AM by pinniped
I bet they will have a leap year logo, too.

I will have to add this to my repuke anti-Google mass email mailings.

The war on X-mas begins early this year.
