A Swedish Lego lover has put his 300 kilo prize collection of building blocks up for sale for 75,000 kronor ($11,500) in a bid to avoid the wrath of his wife.
The advert, posted on buy-sell site Blocket, quickly went viral after the man marked it as '300kg Lego - save my marriage' on the popular Swedish website.
"You can make a difference! Save my marriage. The old bag said last Friday 'now get this shit out.' I don't know if it was me or the Lego she was talking about but I think it was the Lego," the man from Varberg, western Sweden, wrote on Blocket.
Lego enthusiasts who feel tempted by the deal will likely need some transportation to get their hands on the collection. The lot, which is boxed in dozens of containers, weighs in at a hefty 300 kilos plus another 20 kilos for instructions.
On the advert the seller points out that the collection is being sold in whole, not in batches.
"No loose pieces or one box of tyres etc," he wrote.
Among the items up for grabs is several items from the Lego Technic range, designed for more advanced builders, including the remote controlled excavator Volvo.
There's also approximately 44 kilos of wheels and tyres and a practically complete collection of the Lego space range.
He added that some boxes of his hobby have been stored in a basement in a dark and dry environment for a decade.
Despite repeated requests from the Swedish media the man has so far declined to be interviewed, even pointing out on the viral ad that he doesn't want any media requests.
And this man sticks with this creature for what reason?
Wasn’t there a recent Danish study that showed that men whose wives nagged them died earlier. Why not?
600 pounds...$11K worth...of Lego pieces? That wife should have left him when it reached 20 pounds and $100 worth.
What about his Lincoln Logs?
Not a ping?
If this were an episode of Alfred Hitchcock Presents, he would have encased her corpse inside a giant Lego Sphynx.
The wussification of the West. I’m shocked and amazed over how many men still play with children’s toys, video games or are fascinated by Star Wars and comic book movies.
You are so right.
Now, that’s love. Or maybe it’s a serious sign of being pu$$y-whipped. Or maybe the guy is a bit deranged and it’s time to play with grownup things. Hard to tell from here which is the main issue.
I’d love to see slow mo video of that car in a crash test.
> “...the old bag said...”
Sounds to me like there are other issues in that marriage besides the Legos.
Legos aren’t just for kids.
He obviously has a job. Does he cheat on her? Is he a drug addict?
That what you said is on a conservative forum is just another reason why men should never get married in West.
Soulless self-righteous Conservatives will stab men in the back and excuse any reason for a woman to divorce and destroy him. 75% of divorces are initiated by women.
The marriage isn’t going to work anyway.
Once the legos are gone, it will be something else.
I learned a long time ago that when the current problem I’m dealing with is taken care of, everything isn’t going to be fine.
There will ALWAYS be something that we thing, *If only I didn’t have to deal with that, I’d be happy.*
The number two problem moves into the number one slot and now I have a new problem that irritates me.
One doesn’t learn that lesson until its too late. Trust me on this one...
...you forgot to add guns, cars, comic books, baseball cards, tools....etc, etc......LOL!
“The wussification of the West. “
I guess I’m old fashioned but they used to be called hobbies.
How in the world can we make the correct decision without a picture of the wife?
Everything is not awesome.
The ping list intrigues me with its hidden possibilities.
What’s it about, besides being a non-ping-list ping list?
“A boy becomes a man when a man is needed.”
We can only dream of spending our spare time exactly as you choose to spend yours, your highness.
And I'm not talking about doing that stuff with your kids but doing it all by yourself. Just weird.
It is not a non-non-ping non-list. Or not.

Dude, find out for sure before selling off the lot.
Leggo my Legos.
