Officially seen in print by a major media outlet. Another great TMP debate has been laid to rest. Legos it is. LOL
Of course this is brought to you by the same people that criticized Lincoln's Gettysburg Address as empty rambling soon to be forgotten. So maybe, just maybe, my source isn't quite so reliable.

"Whose Gettysburg what?"
President Abraham Lincoln built a 1:1 scale version of the White House in the outskirts of Gettysburg, PA made entirely out of Legos. His plan was to retire there after the ACW but he had an unfortunate encounter with a theatre critic before the end of his presidency.
The same source linked to in my OP, wrote a scathing review of both Lincoln and his speech right after the dedication to the battlefield memorial cemetery following the battle of Gettysburg. Unfortunately for the original critic, Lincoln's Gettysburg Address was something that most US school children were required to learn and recite.
Just before the 150 year anniversary of the speech, the newspaper published an apology and retraction of its comments. Hence my comment about the reliability of using said source for proving the accurate spelling of "LEGO."

"ONE LEGO. MUCH LEGO."
LOL – my two favorite discussions here in TMP land are the LEGO vs LEGOS and the "It's a size, not a scale…" Both topics ruffle a lot of feathers.
