Man Commits Indiana Jones-Themed Suicide By Having Friends Crush Him Via Giant Lego Boulder

Oh, he didn’t die, but you can’t blame a guy for hoping. All I can think of is how awesome it would have been if the Lego boulder had actually crushed the dude running from it, leaving a bloody smear covered in tiny 2×4 bricks. I’d also love to hear these dudes call his mom, and explain her son is dead because they intentionally rolled a giant ball of Legos at him. And the obituary would be pretty sweet too. To sum up, I wish that guy had died. Have a great night!
