Having stepped on my fair share of Legos in my time, in addition to thumbtacks, rusty nails, broken glass, burning embers, etc., I would say that I think the effect is less about how much Legos actually hurt (which is quite a lot) than how shocking it is to find that a small, non-sharp piece of plastic should be in the same league as the things I just listed. On the other hand, knives and needles can often go right through a person without even being felt. Case in point:
I don’t know how evident the photo of that scar is, but when I was 12, I cut my hand deep enough to see bones, but didn’t feel a thing. Even getting the 40-odd stitches removed hurt considerably less than stepping on a Lego.

Wow! That makes the scar on my index finger look like a paper-cut!
