Well done to the builders. This must have taken many hours even days work to build. Congrats Jo on winning another award.

Yea for Jo. How cool to have a picture of yourself made out of legos. She definetly deserves this honor, way more than Zac Efron or one of the Jonas Brothers.

I am so glad she won! But Zac Efron? Seriously? I think it would have been great if Barack Obama had won.

Wow! That’s amazing, and it’s really cool that kids got to help build it. Um- Zac Efron? He does not deserve to be on a list with J.K. Rowling.

Dear Lord – ZAC EFRON HAD OVER DOUBLE THAT OF THE NEXT PERSON? Who was, in fact, BARACK OBAMA?!?!?! I don’t care about your politics, but the fact that Zac freakin’ Efron got that high is just sad. Also, indicative of how many pre-teen girls voted.

Anywho, hooray for ginormous HP=-related Lego mosaics!
