10. Building a Media Empire.

Do you think the pundits on Lego News go on and on about their president faking his birth certificate, to cover for the fact that he's...Will Ferrell? I'd tell you but it's all in German.

11. Chip off the Old Mental Block.

The good news: there may be a cure for PTSD on the horizon. The bad news: it involves cutting open your head.

13. Because the Problem With Chocolate Is the "Eating" Part...

16. No, Not a Device to Capture Hacky Directors Fond of Twist Endings...
