I bet you a hundred dollars that you never played with LEGOs as a kid. I bet you never even had a box of LEGOs. And I know for a fact that you never had LEGOs because LEGOs don’t exist. Don’t get me wrong; there is a popular line of construction toys called LEGO. But the LEGO company doesn’t want people to use the wrong form of pluralization. In their own words: “Dear Parents and Children, The word LEGO® is a brand name and is very special to all of us in the LEGO Group Companies. We would sincerely like your help in keeping it special. Please always refer to our bricks as ‘LEGO Bricks or Toys’ and not ‘LEGOS.’ By doing so, you will be helping to protect and preserve a brand of which we are very proud and that stands for quality the world over. Thank you!” So yeah, looks like you owe me a hundred dollars. You’re lucky we didn’t shake on it. I’ll let it slide this time, but next time I’m taking out your knee.
