There was this song we used to sing when I was a kid that is cute, morbid, a history lesson, and a hint of child pornography* all rolled into one called "It Was Sad When the Great Ship Went Down." That ship, the ill-fated Titanic, went down on April 15, 1912. But in thousands of bathtubs, swimming pools, and living rooms all over the world, models of the ship made of Legos continue to go down in mock sinkings. Here, for your video lunch today, are a few of our favorites.
