LEGO has announced a new line of building bricks that are invisible to stupid children.
A company spokesman said: “Our ‘Junior Elite’ bricks are designed to be used only by the academic ‘creme’.
“Kids, the clever ones, that is, can really let their imaginations run wild while building MC Escher’s house, a Mobius strip, or a four-dimensional rhomboid, each priced at just £49.95.
“Unfortunately, the stupid ones will be unable to see anything at all, and their pudgy hands will be unable to feel the delicate contours of these beautiful, super-light bricks.
“I’m holding one in my hand right now, but you already knew that, of course.”
The spokesman added that the blocks had been coated in a special plastic that meant you would not even notice one if you stepped on it.
Martin Bishop, a father of two from Dartford, said: “My wife wasn’t convinced by the new bricks, but she’s always been a bit dim. Our kids are going to love them, because if not it’s extra tuition on Saturdays until they do.”
