What Happens In Bad Writing Stays In Bad Writing


Allison Hoffman of the Associated Press had a great story. I mean, how cool is it that they replicated 10 Vegas casinos with Legos -- complete with figures of annoying men pushing prostitution fliers. Look at this picture of it -- cool, huh?

Sadly, she spent about 12 seconds thinking up a lead to her story and became just the latest hack to take the intellectually brain-dead, most cliched approach to a Vegas story imaginable.
Are you ready for it?

CARLSBAD, Calif. -- What happens in Legoland Las Vegas will stay in Legoland Las Vegas -- if the designers have anything to say about it.

The worst part is, it's not even true! The Legoland folks want EVERYONE to talk about it, want EVERYONE to take pictures, want EVERYONE to go forth and discuss. That's why they put out this Video News Release!
