Split Rocker-feller

Lego was surprised to see something other than the Rockefeller Christmas Tree at the Rockefeller Center. He later figured out that it was Jeff Koons’ Split-Rocker making its New York City debut.

Lego photographs some weird unknown bugs near the vegetable patch. Tried using a closeup of the bug on Google’s image search-by-uploading-an-image to identify the bug, but it returned mugshots of men as a match 🙂 Tried to refine the search by adding the keyword “bug” along with the image and it came back with nasty pictures of bug-bitten people. Gave up the search and used an insect spray…
