'The Wire' redone with Legos

<br /> <br /> 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.<br /> <br /> 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.<br /> <br /> There's Omar, with two guns.<br /> <br /> There's McNulty toting a very big bottle of something alcoholic.<br /> <br /> There's bits from the docks, City Hall, the schools and the newspaper.<br /> <br /> The drug kingpin, wink-wink, is named Avon Blocksdale.<br /> <br /> The "shares" and "likes" are already through the roof. Enjoy.<br /> <br /> jill.rosen@baltsun.com<br /> <br /> @BaltInsider on Twitter
