I wonder if it will be friends with me?

“The Sperm Whale and the bowl of Petunias” by Stefan Schindler (All Rights Reserved; Used with Permission)

If you are incapable of loving this LEGO vignette based on the whale and bowl of petunias scene from Douglas Adam’s The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, then you and I can no longer be friends.

My four year-old loves the perspective created by the miniature trees and mountain.

I appreciate that the work captures the idea that the terminal velocity of the bowl of petunias would be lower than that of the sperm whale, and that creator Stefan Schindler is a fan of science:

I’m also a great enthusiast of the scientific method and reason…

His LEGO renderings of the ATV-4 “Albert Einstein” space vehicle and his favorite t-shirt (a play on a classic evolution image) lends credibility to that statement.
