    "The plural of LEGO is LEGO, not LEGOs."

    Meh, why not? OK, so Lego is a brand name, and the bricks should probably officially be referred to as "Lego bricks". But Legos seems an acceptable colloquial shorthand.

    Mother: "What do you want for Christmas Billy?"

    Billy: "LEGO, I want LEGO!"

    Sounds really irritatingly stupid without the `S` doesn`t it? Right or wrong, it just SOUNDS moronic.

    I think this would be "Lego in the shape of Freddy Mercury".
    Freddy mercury is not shaped like a lego brick, the bricks are shaped like Him.

    Well see, us Americans took the "s" from "maths" and stuck it on the end of "Lego".

    That`s why we have math class and play with Legos.

    We still haven`t got over you losing the `i` from aluminium. It`s like you people just don`t care.

    Naw, it sounds stupid with the "S". I have "some LEGO", I play with "LEGO", I want "LEGO". It`s like "sheep". I have "a sheep", I have "some sheep". Also, it`s not an English word which is why there is no `S`.

    On topic: This is awesome!

    Actually number, aluminium started off as alumium. The namer of the element didn`t like it, so he then changed it to aluminum. He still didn`t like it, so he changed it to aluminium. Aluminium was preferred by scientists of the time, but aluminum still was around.
    Dictionaries in the USA still wrote aluminum as the official name, and it stuck.

    TL;DR: The name aluminum came roughly 5 years before aluminium and stuck in the USA

    DuckBoy87, right on! :-)

    Jokes aside, you`re all ignorants, the word Lego actually comes from Latin, originally referring to the little pieces of putty the Roman commanders used to model enemy armies when simulating upcoming battles (there is some evidence that they also planned their elaborate orgies this way). The plural is Legones, so you`re all wrong.

    "Billy: "LEGO, I want LEGO!"

    The point is (me thinks) that Brits use the word as a collective noun (like "milk" or "fish"), whereas Americans use it as a countable noun (= pieces of Lego). Nonsense to reason that one is right and the other is wrong, and whether you THINK one sounds good/correct is just a matter of what you are used to.

    Once I rule the world, I`ll have everyone call them blippits anyway.

    I always just thought it was old people who called lego "legos".. Like how they called pokemon "pokemons".
    That annoyed the hell outta me when I was a kid.
