You may find this hard to believe, because it's stupid, but the reason you’re looking at a giant bumblebee made out of legos is because that's what Pete Wentz gave Ashlee Simpson for a wedding present.  No really.  Splash News Online says…
Pete commissioned artist Nathan Sawaya to make the "Lego Bee" which measures 26ins by 47ins by 36ins and is made from about 18,000 standard Lego bricks. New York based Nathan said: "I was commissioned to create a bee. Why a bee? Because it is romantic of course. "In Hindu myth, Kama, the god of love, has a bow and arrows, and the bow string is made up of bees. In the ancient Greek world the bee symbolized the soul because they migrated in swarms. And the Roman god of love, Cupid, is often pictured with bees or being stung. "I made this bee for a boy who wanted to give his girl a special wedding gift.
I will bet you a thousand dollars that at some point Pete said, "will you BEE my wife?"  Or "Will you marry me HONEY!"  Or some other bee related pun.  Because he’s an idiot.  And idiots just live for moments like that.
