Gabby: Who invented Legos?
Me: I don't know, but he was from Denmark.
G: Whoever he was, he was the smartest person ever from Denmark.
Me: Neils Bohr's family might disapprove.
Me: A guy who developed a model of the atom.
G: Well, he didn't invent the atom. The Lego man is way smarter. He's even smarter than Claudius and Hamlet.
Oh dear, there is something rotten in the state of Denmark if 'the Lego guy' is smarter than Neils Bohr.
By the way, the Lego guy is Ole Kirk Christiansen.
