'The Wire' redone with Legos

The Baltimore Sun

Things are tough out there on the mean streets of Blocktimore, or so we find out in the newest spin on "The Wire" -- done this time entirely with Legos.

Yahoo gets the credit for Baltimore redone like Lego-land, a funny bit just released online Wednesday. Just about everything from "The Wire" is in the four-minute short. The drugs. The corruption. The cops that enjoy a few drinks.

There's Omar, with two guns.

There's McNulty toting a very big bottle of something alcoholic.

There's bits from the docks, City Hall, the schools and the newspaper.

The drug kingpin, wink-wink, is named Avon Blocksdale.

The "shares" and "likes" are already through the roof. Enjoy.
