'The Wire' redone with Legos

Things are tough out there on the mean streets of Blocktimore, or so we find out in the newest spin on "The Wire" -- done this time entirely with Legos.

Yahoo gets the credit for Baltimore redone like


-land, a funny bit just released online Wednesday. Just about everything from "The Wire" is in the four-minute short. The drugs. The corruption. The cops that enjoy a few drinks.

There's Omar, with two guns.

There's McNulty toting a very big bottle of something alcoholic.

There's bits from the docks, City Hall, the schools and the newspaper.

The drug kingpin, wink-wink, is named Avon Blocksdale.

The "shares" and "likes" are already through the roof. Enjoy.
