Team Clutch Builders, The Dog Ate My Homework, 2014 MocAthalon

In the beginning of March, I chuckled to myself and enjoyed unleashing my very clever "Yo mama" jokes upon the competition. No one would stand against the might of team Clutch Builders! However, after a week, I realized that no one on my team was building anything.... Looked like I had to go pay them all a visit and get them working. I decided to see Simon (Si-MOCs) first, and I kitted up for travel in wild Canada.



Of course, I'd forgotten that Simon lived in Toronto. I got some odd looks for my outfit. (You know you stand out when a one-armed homeless man points at you...)



Anyways, I found Simon's apartment and peaked through the window. The horrors! To my disgust, there appeared to be a Halo or Space Marine party going on. To make matters worse, Simon was hanging out with team Jigsaw! Needless to say, Simon was not building for us.



I headed down to the States to find Paul Vermeesch and Max Pointner. They lived in a foreboding home, with a completely desiccated lawn and a roman numeral as their civic number.



Good gumbos! They'd been in this home all month, building giant olive green cheese slopes out of olive green cheese slopes! They'd become so obsessed with building cheese for Brickworld, that they hadn't cut their hair, let alone built for our team. This meant Blake Baer was our only hope...



Upon turning 18, Blake had moved out to Scotland. I flew over and met up with him on his front lawn. After an impressive kick of a soccer ball, Blake invited me into his house.



The opulence was truly stunning - Blake had obviously cashed in his fame as a LEGO builder. But when I asked him to pump out a few entries, he said he no longer liked LEGO. "Babes and balls man, babes... and balls," was all he would say - now that he was 18, he was trying to emulate Kelso it seemed. (Well, with 12 hours of soccer thrown in everyday for good measure.)



I returned home, and suddenly realized it was up to me to carry the team in the last few remaining hours. Frantically, I emptied all my Zip-Lock bags of LEGO out and got building. Time was ticking - I had but minutes left to post!



As the clock ran down, I hadn't the time to polish each scene.... But it was live! Finished! Done! After a month of hard work, we had a good excuse.

So, sirs and madams, this is why Clutch Builders didn't complete our homework. However, we hope you enjoyed this excuse, and I wish everyone reading this all the best with your own assignments. (You too judges, sorry to add on to the slew of last minute entries...)

Alas poor Clutch Builders, I knew them Judges. A team of infinite fives. Shame there Luke, had the potential of destroying this contest. But, anyways... Love the build. Blake is hilarious and building olive cheese wedges with olive cheese wedges is genius. Well at least with this, CB won't be pointless. ;)

So that's what my buddies were doing with all that olive cheese I gave them. And I see you finally got to spill the beans, huh? I guess I'll have to stop blackmailing Simon now. All that Lego I'd planned to get for keeping quiet...*pout*
