I think it's funny, but a little too close to the edge. I'd like to have it on here, but no.

Thanks to both of you for posting your creations here, I love funny Lego MOC's and I'd love to be able to have a page that pools all of the funny, but clean humor into one place so people don't have to go running all over and end up clicking on, say, The Other Shannon (which was funny, but a lot of kids could get in trouble for reading it).

I know what you mean.

Hello, I added a creation to see if it meets the clean standards for this group. If it does not, please let me know and I will remove it.

Don't worry, if it's not quite up to scratch, I'll remove it myself. Well, that is, whenever I drop by. I usually go I while without checking this group, then check it all at once.

Well, I can't say that getting run over by a lawnmower is quite what I was thinking of. A lot depends on your presentation, but it seemed to be more of the "knee-jerk" type of comedy that I'm not too keen on.

As far as your other creation, it really wasn't any sort of comedy whatsoever, rather, it was a main picture that didn't seem to serve a purpose. Now, if you were to expand on that and make a funny creation out of it, then it would probably fit here.

I guess I'll need to expand on the general guidelines a bit.

I see that my creation did get removed. Could you please let me know the rule that it violated so that I am more careful in the future?

A lot of the time, it's not so much about breaking a rule as I didn't feel that the creation was completely appropriate. In this case it was the "Phipson Monsters". Now, I have to admit, I got a bit of a chuckle out of it, but it didn't quite fit the policy here.

I realize that it wasn't really bad or anything, and I may just be overly picky, but this isn't so much about what I feel is over the line, but that this group would be the internet address to give to anyone looking for a lego laugh, and that includes kids. So while I thought your creation was just fine, I don't think that all parents would be pleased.

At any rate, I still would like to see any future funny creations added to this group if you feel that they're safe. You don't have to worry about offending everyone under the sun, I'll take a look and let you know about them. ;)

Excellent! That is exactly what I thought. The Phipson monsters pushed it a bit. I do not really have any others yet, my Snow White is way out of line for this group. I will do something funny though, good group!

What do you mean by 'knee-jerk'/

"Knee-jerk" referred to humor of the type where, instead of understanding a joke as funny, or laughing at the absurdity of something, it was rather a reaction to something shocking. Now I realize that your creation wasn't "bad" or anything, but for it to only be funny because someone was randomly killed is not, (for lack of descriptive words) truly funny.

Now if, for example, Jones had been run over by the lawnmower, but instead of being dismembered, he was flattened into the ground with a shocked expression on his face, and nobody had even noticed, it would've been funny. It would've been even better if he managed to walk a ways thinking he had survived and then a leg pops off. Add a punchline (maybe about how he just needs to find someone to put it back on again, since he's plastic, for example), and you have humor. Just don't portray it in a violent, bloody light, and it's fine, but once it becomes about pointless death, it simply boils down to shock value.

I see your points.

A plot for a possible Moc.

Once upon a time there was a kingdom whose monarch possessed a throne of pure gold and precious gems. Now, this kingdom was always beset by outsiders, invaders who wanted that throne, and so the realm were always in some conflict or other.

At one point, three of the neighboring realms united and decided to end the matter once and for all; agreeing to divide the throne equally among them.

However, the monarch of the valuable throne got wind of this plot and decided to send the throne off to be hidden somewhere. His trusted chamberlain agreed and so the throne was smuggled out of the capital in the dead of night and taken off into the countryside.

A few days later the invasion took place and the country was quickly overrun. When the invaders got to the castle they found the throne gone and sent out troops in search of it.

Meanwhile, the men guarding the throne were becomng disgruntled at not be able to go back and fight, so they decided to trust one of the realm's loyal subjects and soon decided upon a humble woodcutter in a small village.

This man was so humble that he lived in a log shack with grass walls, on the edge of a great forest.

"Certainly, I will hide the throne for you." he agreed, "We can put it n my house. Though it seems shaky, it is actually quite sturdy and we can put the throne in the attic."

This was quickly done and the men returned to the battles .

Later, an enemy patrol came searching for the throne and went through the entire village. They came lastly to the woodcutter's hut and laughed, looking at it. The thing was so rickety and you could see right through parts of the walls!

"Nevertheless, we look inside." Said their captain, and they did.

Unfortunately, the hut was not as strong as the woodcutter had claimed. The enemy troops were just about to leave when there was a loud groaning sound, and then the throne crashed down through the ceiling to land in front of them. The woodcutter was taken prisoner and the enemy troops loaded up the throne on a wagon they had brought with them.

The moral of this story, of course, is that people who live in grass houses shouldn't stow thrones.

A plot for a possible Moc...

That was rather enjoyable, and would be even better if it were in lego form. However, if you have good ideas, use them! Just posting them somewhere does little good.
