Yes, I would try to stop it. So would a few hundred million other
people. Everyone employed by Lego would quit en masse, any store
carrying the toys would be boycotted, and doctors would refuse Lego
stockholders medical care. There wouldn't be enough left of the company
to burn in effigy.

And as long as we're discussing Political Correctness, I'd like to
remind everyone that:
"Liberals aren't morons - they're cognitively challenged
