The Lego Bible (Literally)

I just came across this and had to post it because (a) it’s hilarious; and (b) I thinks it’s of real pedagogical value.

Here’s a scene from the Garden of Eden:

I also like the “Adult Content” warning he has at the bottom of the page. (And I understand that, yes, in fact, the work is not entirely safe for kids.)
