Using Legos, Yellowstone is reminding tourists not to cook Thanksgiving turkeys over hot springs.

Yellowstone National Park continues to have a sense of humor.

A few months ago, the Park posted some advice for tourists on what to do if they see a bear.

They advised not tripping your friend and then running (which is, although humorous, still good advice).

On Saturday, they took it to a different level.

Using Legos, they reminded tourists that it is illegal to cook turkeys in the hot springs of Yellowstone.

This advice, of course, jumps on the recent story of the idiots from Idaho who attempted to cook a chicken in the hot springs of Yellowstone.

“We don’t know who needs to hear this, but it is illegal to cook a turkey in the hot springs at Yellowstone National Park,” the Facebook post reads. 

“Boiled, baked, stewed, brined, spatchcocked, grilled, braised, smoked, and deep fried are all illegal.  They will ban you from the park!  Just don’t do it,” it said.

Kudos to Yellowstone not only for the usage of Legos but because the park ranger and the lawbreaker are both wearing masks.

In Lego court, we hope the ruffian gets probation just because — even though he is breaking the law — his mask covers his nose (which so many non-Lego people don’t understand).
