A Lego underfoot is the worst sort of injury. Chasing after your kids and stepping on one of those sharp blocks of pure plastic evil is sometimes more painful than stepping on a broken glass.

At least the glass is quick, Legos lodge themselves into under your skin like a bad girlfriend.

Now just imagine thousands of those Legos spilled across a West Virginia freeway messing up traffic for drivers. That’s exactly what happened on Interstate 79 this last Sunday.

At first there was no word on how the treacherous toy mishap happened, other than that they spilled out of a few large containers, but we’re pretty sure it was all part of Legos evil plan at world domination.

Luckily for mankind, firefighters came to the rescue and cleaned up the mess with one firefighter Facebooking pictures. A mother named Tiffany Lantz admitted to giving birth to the toy terrorist.

“Those legos belonged to my 11 yr old son they where in totes strapped to the top of the durango they fell off strap came loose he cried it seemed like forever but I tried to recover as many as I could cause I don’t have the money to buy him anymore,” she said.

Sure, Ms. Lantz. That’s just what the evil Lego overlords wanted you to say.
