All right folks heres the deal: After deciding to cook up an MOC for Mr. Kelso's new contest The Sig Darwin Awards I spent my time building a little MOC for you guys. For those who don't know the Darwin Awards is where a Sigfiggy does something out of the ordinary, and ends up removing themselves from the gene pool in an extraordinary fashion. In other words some moron does something stupid, and gets his little plastic brains blown out. Anyway this is the first installment, so I encourage you to come take a look...
Well, in order to get away from the pages for a while, along with all of the smack, sore building fingers, and wait time that comes with it lately, I've decided to leave with a few of my MOC friends to go on a little camping trip. Yep, just one of those little weekend trips.
And were off, here you can see a group picture of us, with Caleb Cutlass Crocodile Blanchet as Caleb, Elite Marshal Phazonix as Phaz, and Dylan as uhhh, Dylan.
Before setting up camp we decided on taking a little nature hike though the woods. The scenery was quite beautiful, birds chirping, squirrels running around, very peaceful, you could just kick off your shoes and take a nap for hours. But MOCpages was brought up eventually, and Phaz's constant warning of Sasquash attacks became quite annoying, so we decided to head back.
Caleb had the bright idea of suggesting that we were being followed in some manner, and this eventually led to Phaz bringing out his "How to avoid the Monsters of the Woods" book, just when we shut him up too...
After walking we come upon a little cabin in the woods. It was a quaint little place, made of adobe bricks, and a straw roof. it had probably been untouched for a long period of time and looked like a nice little place to stay for a while, almost like a Motel 6 in the woods.
We made up our minds to take a peak inside, and after a vicious match of rock-paper-scissors, it was decided that I was to go in first.
After I saw that a group of Amish settlers were huddled inside feasting on hotdogs, I decided that it was a good time to leave. Just when I was about to turn away, of course, Phaz try's to make friends with the foreigners. I could have given him one to the face right then and there.
The people decided to invite us in for lunch, so respectfully we joined in... After talking we found out that they, in turn were not so bad, but were quite friendly indeed.
Out of respect for the meal we decided to help them with the daily chores around the house.
Phaz and Jacob were assigned well duty, to retrieve the weeks worth of water.
And Caleb had to churn a little butter, apparently it wasn't too hard after Ezekiel showed him to properly handle it.
And of course, I get stuck with milking Betty, the cow. It wouldn't have been as bad if Brenda hadn't told me that Betty was a real person, and that she was the ugliest person in the Amish territory. When she had passed on, it was believed that she was reincarnated as a cow.
Afterwards we took a little swim in the creek. Since we had done so well in the chores, Ezekiel had promised the tonight we would party like it were 1895.
The swim was all fun and games until Caleb decided to pull out his new speedo to see how it fit. To think that he wondered why we all got out of the creek right afterwards.
The party began right afterwards, there was dinner and talk...
And much dancing.
When morning came, we were all beat, and were later to be awoken be sounds of a cell phone. I really hate High School Musical too.
We all listened closely as Caleb began discussing something with the speaker on the phone. The speaker seemed like a truly troubled person, his requests were absurd too. He seemed in a panic to get what he wanted. No one knew who is was though...
Since the Amish are more directed to the simple life, the cell phone got their attention real fast. Something about it made them feel very uneasy...
All of a sudden the sprang up and began chasing us, I don't know when they upgraded their weapons from apples and sticks, to rocks and frying pans, but we knew that we were in for it. They really didn't like that cellphone.
We made a break for the creek, aside from all the rocks and crocodiles, and leeches made it even more fun.
We hid in a little plant along side of the trail, and scrunched ourselves tightly against it, it was a conformable plant, somewhat itchy, but we could handle it. They ran past, and we remained unnoticed. It didn't take us long to figure out that we were lost, without well anything, and dang it, I forgot to tape the Man vs Wild series on forest survival. when we get out of here I otta kill whoever was on that phone, yes i will do that. HEEEE. While I thought, Phaz noticed that the brush we were in happened to be poison ivy... Why that clear painting *itch* artist *itch* is so dead, why... *itch*itch*itch*...
To be continued...
Here the set I used on the MOC.
And is case your wondering, I got the idea from making this by viewing a music video on YouTube, that is entitled Amish Paradise, by Weird Al...
For those from the Darwin Awards, yes your wondering wheres the gore and guts, right? I'll tell you this is part 1 of the contest, a whole new MOC for part 2 is underway, that artist will pay for almost killing us...
Well hope you had a good laugh, and enjoyed it. I've got a lot of new stuff coming out, yes possibly a part 2, so stay tuned. So go ahead, and don't be afraid to tell me how I did on my first comic, ok.
"We've been spending most our lives, livin' in an Amish paradise! I churn butter once or twice, livin' in an Amish paradise! It's hard work and sacrifice, livin' in an Amish paradise! We sell quilts at discount price, livin' in an Amish paradise!"
Fun story, Dillan (and some good jokes!), but so far, it’s missing the point of the D.A. contest. Ah, but I’ll have some patience and we’ll see where this leads.. It ain’t over till the fat lady sings, and since this is to be continued, I’m guessing she’ll serenade us somewhere in act two, or three.
Quoting Lee Jones
Nicely done, but what is the 'grass' that is over everything? Paper? Lee.
It's fake moss, that can be found at pretty much any local craft store. I used it to spice up the MOC a little, make the environment a little more realistic, since I lack those green pieces needed to do so...
