Side-event #1: "Phip Phip, Hooray!"
 Group admin 
"Phip Phip - Hooray!"
http://www.mocpages.com/group.php/13227
This is the 1st side-event hosted by the MOC Olympics crew.
It's open to all those who lost (or will lose) and still want to have fun with us.

INTRODUCTION
I hear this Chris Phipson is a great guy.
He may not always seem to play with a full deck (see R1), but he's friendly, supportive, funny and he has endured at least twice the smack it would take for any self-respecting AFOL to leave this place forever.
And he does it all with a smile (at least I can picture him smiling right now).
I thought it was time to give something back.

So without further ado, this is your assignment:
- Build a vig or small dio (not a story) showing Sig-Fig Phipson facing, pursuing or apprehending weird/unusual suspects in weird/unusual ways.
-Additional: your official entry in the contest CAN contain more than one different vignette, showing different situations.

We're not looking for yet another round at "smack the Phipps" here, make him the hero of the situation. A funny hero, maybe a clumsy one, but the hero nontheless.

For practical reasons, this side-event will be hosted in a side-group, here
http://www.mocpages.com/group.php/13227

Here, these are some examples of what youžre expected to build for this event

If you want to write here, DON'T REPLY TO THIS POST (unless you shave it down to the bit you want to answer to).

The original is preferable.

Got mine ready for when I lose in the MocOlympics. Certainly not super weird, it's just kinda weird.

Ooops! I forgot something in the rules!
Check them!

In no way whatsoever do any of you have permission to use my character, Chip Philson, for this side event. He is a copyrighted character that I created (along with Heather LEGOgirl) and is NOT Chris Phipson. Thank you very much for your cooperation! (Yes, this means that there is another Blockocop story in the future, just when, I can't say.)

Yes, and in fact if you did it would also happen to be an invalid entry :)

I resent that question. Of course there's a notable difference -- my character, Chip Philson, is a bumbling idiot who couldn't find his back pockets if you spotted him his left hand. I wouldn't put the notice in here if I wanted anyone trampling all over my intellectual property or insulting Chris' intelligence and integrity or despoiling his reputation.

WRONG. There is a huge difference between my character and Chris Phipson. I actually know Chris; I've talked with him many times, I've broken bread with him, and I've even been to his home. Chris is an intelligent, thoughtful, and considerate human being. My fictional character, Chip Philson, is a careless, bumbling idiot. Please don't insult my friend or run roughshod over my creation by making the offhand assumption that they are "pretty much" the same. I worked very hard to create the character and the 82 page story I wrote to go with him, and to be quite honest I don't want anyone stealing my thunder. Chip is my creation and I'll write his stories myself, thank you.
