Go Jo! Congrats! I don’t understand the criteria for being on that list, as a Jonas Brother isn’t necessarily a hero, but I’m happy for Jo.

It amazes me how someone can create such a great likeness of JK out of LEGO blocks. She deserves to be at the top of the list.

So cool that Jo beat out everyone so decisively! She’s certainly brought more joy to the world, and done more good in support of acceptance and tolerance and love than anyone else.

A recent episode of Mythbusters featured Lego! You have to check it out. This story, and the Mythbusters episode, makes me want to buy a big vat of Lego.

Congrats to Jo! I would have thought that Daniel Radcliffe and David Tennant would have ranked higher…
