It's actually LEGO®, apparently, even in plural. Or so I'm told. :) – John Rudy Nov 21 '09 at 8:04
Igot out of the shower this morning AND HAD THE EXACT SAME THOUGHT. First order of business was to take care of that. Of course, I blame it on those crazy denmarkians and their poor grasp of English plurals. Don't bother me with the fact that it's actually denmarkish. (Actually my sister in law speaks Danish and has been there for a few years at a time a few times before. She says it's quite a lovely country.) LEGOS. – Adam Davis Nov 21 '09 at 13:55
LEGO is the name of the company - the product is a LEGO brick. It'd be like referring to the PS3 as a Sony, and pluralizing by calling it Sonys, rather than PS3s. – warren Nov 21 '09 at 14:11
I suppose nobody here says, "pass me a Kleenex," either. Everyone says, "pass me a Kleenex®-brand facial tissue?" :) – John Rudy Nov 21 '09 at 15:13
I make Xerox brand copies, and I never google something - I always use a google search to find something. – Adam Davis Nov 22 '09 at 5:09
