In Honor Of Its 66th Birthday, A LEGO Fan Made Something Special For All 50 States

The ubiquitous LEGO brick as we know it has been around since 1958, and in 66 years of existence the company has stayed true to its formula. The company, which originally manufactured a variety of wooden toys, was founded in Denmark in 1932, named after a combination of the Danish words "Leg Godt" which mean "play well." Today, LEGOs appear in books, movies and video games and in 2015, Brand Finance officially named LEGO the "World's Most Powerful Brand." 

But all the widespread fame isn't getting to their heads - LEGO bricks have always been compatible with each other throughout the years, so an original brick will connect just fine with a brick manufactured today. Even more incredible than their ability to connect to one another is the ability that LEGOs have to connect to people. It's estimated that, on average, ever person on Earth owns 86 LEGO bricks and that there are nearly 4 billion LEGO people in circulation. 

With that kind of variety of figures available, Imgur use slop had the creative idea to utilize that diversity to create a LEGO tableau for another, real-world paragon of diverse populations: The United States of America. Using LEGO figurines and a few basic backdrops, all 50 states are represented. What did you think of how your state was depicted? I know mine made me laugh, so let us know what you'd have chosen for yours!
