    I find the whole controversy over the Lego photo absolutely hilarious, but only because I have te benefit of it being my best friend’s thumb depicted in the shot. I know full well it’s not faked, and that he’s just not the sort of person to bother with such things.

    I also find hilarious the various mistakes made in reporting. At least one professional report on the situation stated that he found it at his girlfriend’s grandmother’s house. Presumably this was interpreted from a heteronormative reading of an earlier report mentioning his ‘partner’. It was, as it happens, found at his boyfriend’s grandmother’s house.
