This whole “diet and exercise” thing can be stressful, even panic-inducing. This poor lego above couldn’t decide which health and fitness sources to trust, and unfortunately, went a bit crazy.

What tiny detail or problem used to freak you out? How did you let yourself off the hook?

True story: After taking this photo, BlamedCat stopped a bank robbery single-handedly, bench-pressed a Mini Cooper for fun, only before rescuing orphaned puppies from a burning building. I won’t tell you the shirt was the cause of his superhuman abilities, but seems like a funny coincidence…don’t you think?
