Interesting, but I'll pass. ;-)

Space Lego Smiley Helmet Cufflinks on Cool Hunting
"For the dapper dork Etsy seller Gr0gimann's Space Lego Smiley Helmet cufflinks are a way to subtly show off your inner fanboy. Taking a pressed button-down to another galaxy and sure to spark a conversation or two, these cute, happy explorers are made from authentic plastic Lego spaceman heads affixed to silver-plated hardware."

I was thinking it was going to be made out of a standard red brick which actually might look neat in a very whimsical way. These linked are way too on the nerd side for me.

These remind of the final scene in "Seven."

There's something very, very disturbing about wearing a smiling yellow head on your cuff. A red brick, that I'd do.

There is something disturbing about wearing any type of head-on-a-stick. Reminds me of a time when McDonald's had Winnie the Pooh character heads dangling from a plastic clasp. They look like spoils of war, not wear.

Those Lego block cufflinks on the other hand look pretty kickass.

The blocks look more interesting, but would be better if they were just all silver and not plastic.

But really, are these any different than Mickey Mouse ties?

And of course this goes without saying, don't buy single-sided cuff links. Are you too cheap to afford a complete set?

Then what's the point, they'd just be silver squares with circular bumps. That said, I like the odd quirky accessory, even if I don't have many myself.

Also, I'd say it's not like Mickey Mouse ties, because ties are on display much more than cufflinks, so there's less room for play with them.
