I know the dates at the photos says XX/XX/2010, but they are all taken in week 42 this year. I must have set the date wrong... :(

The third photo is taken by one of the gardeners at Legoland, who was taking care of the trees at the exibitions :flowers:

Nice Lego Castles! They are very detailed!

Muhler 10-21-2011 12:07 PM

Thanks, FasterB :smile:

So you were nephew-sitting during the autumn holiday?

Hope you had a nice trip.

How could you guess that? :whistling: My parents, nephew and I went to Legoland for two days and Givskud Zoo for one day in the autumn holiday :flowers:

And btw, I met a giraffe. The following photos are taken without zoom. I just called at the giraffe and then (s)he came :rofl::rofl::rofl:

Hope you said hello to Samson.
You may remember that he's an expat from Copenhagen. ;)

For foreign viewers...eeh, readers.
Samson is a gorilla. He became a household name in DK, in the 90's. - Not least after falling in love in a female reporter and masturbating while looking at her - on prime time TV.:lol:
After which, realising he couldn't get the reporter, lovely as she was, he proceeded to eat boogies out of his nose to console himself.

To this day I believe the reports from the zoo's in DK is among the best reality TV ever shown, and the participants, among them Samson, were among the most intelligent and endearing characters yet. - Whatever they did, it made a whole lot more sense than what most humans do.

You can actually find the infamous clip of Samson on YouTube.

- On another note. The Legoland view of M&F's private garden at Kancellihuset is probably the best we have. Even the swimming pool is very detailed.

No, unfortunately I didnīt get the chance to say hello to Samson :sad: It was raining and my nephew couldnīt care less about Samson :lol:
So we took the Safaritour in car three times instead :rofl:

Btw. talking about animals that every dane knows... Do you remember Brutalis? :whistling::rofl::whistling:

I should have taken better photos of all the castles, but it was raining, hailing (kæmpe hagl) and I donīt know what both days we were in Legoland, so most of the time we stood inside or tried to a take a tour in an inside ride :smile:

I sure do :lol: A rhino, who was in so many ways more human than the humans he was among.
Do you remember when the elephants had a hang-over and the vet at the zoo phoned the police to see if they could help him with a breathalizer test on the elephants?
(They did manage to get a test and the elephants were drunk).
That was at same time the royal elephants from Thailand moved in.

Oh yes, that was soooooo hilarious :rofl::rofl::rofl:
I wish that they would make a rerun of the series :flowers:

WOW They look like the mini versions of the actual royal residence and it's hard to believe it's made of Lego :0

Why do I get the feeling that Denmark TV is better then American tv. I will have to look those up on youtube. Ok I have to ask why and how did the elephants get drunk.

Ok to stay on topic, those castles look very life like. Muhler or FasterB would you know how long it took the artists/builders to do that? If I ever get to Denmark that would have to be one of the places I go to.

I don't know how long it took the builders (yes, they are really artists in their fireld, as you say) to plan and build the Lego-Kancellihus.
What they do is that they study the plans of the building, then thoroughly photograph it from every possible angle.
From that they start to figure out what kind of standard bricks they can use and to draw, mold and cast special bricks.
Then it's "only" a matter of putting the whole thing together with glue and place it in Legoland. - Viola!

The story with the elephants was hillarious.
It all started with the elephants acting a bit weird, when they were being hosed. One of them kicked his/her "play-bucket" around. The elephant always did that, but a good deal more enthusiastic this time! :dizzy:
Strange! As the other elephants were also extraordinarily merry the keepers wondered if their fodder, containing fruits had fermented. That couldn't be established right away, (the elephants had eathen the evidence) so the vet was called and the elephants looked decidedly intoxicated, but how to know for certain?
Got it! Call the police and ask them if they know how to perform an alcohol test on elephants.
I don't know how that conversation was but it must have been interesting!
Something akin to this perhaps
- The police.
- The is the vet from Copenhagen Zoo. I believe our elephants are intoxicated and I wonder if you can help us perform a breathalizer test?
(Silence).
- Hello? We would like to establish whether our elephants are drunk. - Hello? No, they are grey, not pink...
The vet in some way actually managed to persuade the police to borrow an alcometer and now came the tricky part. How to persuade an elephant to blow into the alcometer? An elephant with lungs as big as a cathedral, mind you.
They got hold of a big plastic bag for garbarge and the elephants breathed into that bag, after which they squeezed the bag, holding the alcometer close to the open hole.
The test was inconclusive however.
But the next day one of the elephants was filmed, litterally leaning against the wall, with the trunk hanging down limp. - And you almost see a speech-bobble over it's head saying: "Oh, my head, oh, my trunk"! :sick::headache:

I didn't leave anything out, did I FasterB?

FasterB 11-07-2011 05:58 PM

No, you didnīt leave anything out, Muhler :flowers:
You described it in a perfect way :rofl::rofl::rofl:

Grandduchess24 01-16-2012 06:59 PM

I just wish I could visit and see them up close .
