"No real than you are"

For today's WTF news item, we travel to Amster-Amster-Dam-Dam-Dam to discover an elusive mystery of the deep...the sea, that is. And no, it's not the colossal squid, Atlantis, or Olivia Newton John's boyfriend. It's something far more sinister, with clippy yellow hands, a glazed expression and a very mysterious message on his t-shirt. It's a giant, foam Lego Man that apparently floated from the direction of England and is now displayed in front of "the drinks stall" for curious beachgoers to marvel at...and obey.

AMSTERDAM, Aug 7 - A giant, smiling Lego man was fished out of the sea in the Dutch resort of Zandvoort on Tuesday.

Workers at a drinks stall rescued the 2.5-metre (8-foot) tall model with a yellow head and blue torso.

"We saw something bobbing about in the sea and we decided to take it out of the water," said a stall worker. "It was a life-sized Lego toy."

A woman nearby added: "I saw the Lego toy floating towards the beach from the direction of England."

The toy was later placed in front of the drinks stall.
