SD - MOC Olympics R1 - "Your pants are on fire"
My first round entry for the MOC Olympics
About this creation
Somewhere in the country.......



Hi there folks, this is Lance Clancy for B.E.S. news, bringing you your daily dose of Ďthose crazy localsí! Today, weíre reporting from Dirt Farm in deepest south county, where an enterprising inventor claims to have created a revolutionary method of flight using a low-cost fuel. Letís meet him!



Cletus P Dirt, and his assistant Roscoe Dogpie Ė Guys, thanks for talking to me today. Tell me a little about your invention.

Well son, iíve made me some flying pants, ainít that right Roscoe?

Uh-huh.



Flying pants? Amazing! I understand you have them in your workshop Ėcould we see them?

Son, youíre in luck. Iímma testíem for the first time today. Roscoe, fetch them flying pants.

Uh-huh.



So, have you done much aeronautical engineering before Cletus?

Son, thereís no need for that kind of talk in front of Lou-Ann.

Erm, I mean whatíve you invented before?

Well, I done made me a still, sawn off a shotgun and I made the biggest fireworks in the county for four straight years.

Okay.....




Now here we go. Iím gonna fly me some pants today!

Now Cletus, have you ever flown before? It doesnít look very safe.



Son, I done taken precautions Ė I got me a helmet.

And as you climb into the flying pants, could you tell us a little about the low cost fuel youíre using?



Yep. Weíre using TNT.

TNT! You mean dynamite?

Sure! Same stuff we use for fishing. Itís safe as you like as long as Roscoe donít light it, ainít that right Roscoe?



Uh-huh?



They donít pay me enough for this!



Your pants are on fire! Your pants are on fire!



Well, itís all OK as long as Roscoe connected the safety chain. Roscoe?



Uh-Huh?

Oh Shee....



Eeeeeeeee...



Eeeeeeit!

Mocolympics 2010

4th Wall/ Notes

Due to vacation (or holiday as we civilised people know it) I have had one night to build, photograph, edit and post this, so if itís not down to my usual low standard then sue me. Iím tired and I donít care. I could have cheerfully stretched the judges on a rack for bringing forward the start date Ė iíve spent the last week in a tent wondering whether I would get an entry in. Actually thatís not strictly true Ė I was in a tent, but I was drinking cider and eating food cooked over a butane burner and visiting castles and stuff. It was great but iím knackered and typing rubbish and I go back to work tomorrow, so Boing! Time for bed.
Thanks for looking.

Quoting CY-EV . Creative build and quirky dialogue, but also one critical research failure: TNT and dynamite are not the same thing.
Thanks for that. The next time I build some flying trousers powered by explosives I'll be sure to give you a call.

Forgot my non judge comment. This is simply the bes, really the bes. This had me laughing at work on a very hard day, so I thank ye for that good Sir!

Ah! Slap me thrice and hand me to me momma! This is one great build that can be added to the "I-officially-got-hosed-when-they-changed-the-mocolympics-start-date group." Your casual attempt at being politically correct here is easily defeated though - we all know this isn't a stereotype you Englishmen have of just Southern US citizens. You're perfectly sure that the whole colonial lot of us are crazy, explosion-loving brigands. Don't worry, though, because we all conversely picture you uploading your LEGO creations while wearing a top-hat and monocle, sipping tea (with pinky out, of course) and discussing fiscal trade policy and glory-of-the-empire with Allan Quatermain. Bes o' luck to you in future rounds, mate! ~M

Thank you all for the lovely comments! And of course, thanks to the esteemed judges for their scores (Although Heath and I are stocking up on charcoal for a judge roast - I promise to marinate in alcohol first). Now I have slept in a real bed for a few nights my limited level of sanity has returned and I feel much better. No more one-night builds though, yesterday I felt like I had brushed my hair with a mallet and washed my face with gravel. On to R2, and judges, I would love it if you keep up the mob-rules style categories as I think they produce such interesting results. Bye.

AHAHAHA That was so funny! What put it over the top, though, was the rust on the roof! How did you do that? A brilliant creationn, one of the best in the MocOlympics! EDIT: Never mind, I think it's a piece. And I just noticed he went up into space! Even more funny!

Hahahahaha!!! This is brilliant! Sometimes we create our bes stuff whilst under pressure. The guy in the tub had me giggling madly and the flying through the clouds and into space floored me! I am reminded of Wallace and Grommet on this one... I love the "Wrong Trousers".

Nice work on this Stuart. The overall build is very good even with one night of work on the whole MOC. I really love the little pond at the corner, and very nice story line by the way. Good luck in the games! ~ Ghostman :)

As a resident of the 'deep south', I can safely say these folks remind me of some of the people I know. Lovely build, hilarious scenario, and all done in a panicked rush. I love it! Good luck in the Olympics!

Quoting Chuke Lapman You weren't watching that James May program, last night, perchance? Great entry. What kind of voodoo is that shack roof, though? Sounds like you had a great time camping. Good luck with judges!
No telly at all last night Luke, as soon as we got back from camping my old 3-tonne TV died :( Good news is that it's been replaced by a shiny new LCD HD monster that weighs about as much as a bag of crisps. Bad news is that was an unexpected sting in the wallet. The roof slopes are from an old adventurers set - Dino research compound #5987. Thanks too! Now i'm back to civilisation I need to catch up on everybody else's entries and new builds.
