Johnny: “Oh man, I forgot I’m allergic to elephant pudding! It’s not that noticeable is it hon?”
Well, nothing for it Johnny thought but to go about his day as usual and wait for the swelling to die down.
Sitting on the bus on the way to work he couldn’t help but notice some interesting side effects: he got a seat to himself…
And once he got to work, he found that, for once, everyone left him alone.
After surfing the net for a while he got bored and photocopied his bum.
Before he knew it, the time was 11.00 am, so he went out for an extended lunch.
“I could get used to being this hideous!” he said to himself.
On the way to lunch, Johnny thought he’d stop by the luxury car showroom and maybe take that red Roadster he liked for a spin.
The salesman was so horrified he threw the keys at Johnny and said he could keep it if he never came back!
“This IS nice” thought Johnny, and drove off.
So Johnny had a lovely lunch and thought he’d knock off for the day and go home. Predictably, he sped just a tiny little bit (267 kmph) and was pulled over by a highway cop. Johnny politely got out to greet the nice officer but he was nowhere to be seen…
Johnny’s wife was most impressed with her husband’s new purchase.
Wife: “I’m SO impressed with my husband’s new purchase!”
Johnny: “I think I’ll eat some elephant pudding every night now dear. And you know, my face isn’t the only part of me that got hideously swollen…”
Be sure to say in your comments which one you liked the best. I'll count these up to give the score. Smileys are cool and such but won't count in the tally. I'll count all the "votes" by Sunday the 27th Eastern Aussie time. Cheers!
I don't know where to start complimenting you on this one: there are way too many awesome things to comment on. The office chairs, the water cooler, the great police bike- don't be too surprised if some of those ideas are stolen...
Gotta love that elephant pudding. You've got my vote.
I like it

I gotta give my vote to Ocean on this one. Good MOC-ing and the story was A+. As others have stated, the ending clinched it for me.
I like it

So maybe I'm biased because you're my favorite Aussie Brickman around.. but I have to give this one to Shannon. The ending is my favorite. I'm guessing I know what she'll be feeding him for dinner at least a couple nights a week.
Hey Mark, the reason for that is that there are a few of us (you, Young, Goldman, kesenovitz, Jones, Ludgonious, Ocean and Myself included) who have been placed on a constant amber alert watch list by the moderators... but we already had that discussion. ~ Chris.
Okay, Shan...everything I write is getting moderated (imagine that!), so it looks like all the snarky commentary will have to wait for another time (too bad, this MOC's screamin' for it!). You got my vote, now if you'll be so kind as to send me the recipe for that pudding we'll call it even.
Hey, Where can I get some Elephant pudding? Not that I need any of it of course. No, not me... anyway... the ending was the clincher! I never thought a blank screen could convey so much imagery! My vote, Shannon! Good on ya mate! BTW, I'm posting your story today (Shannon: what, what story? I wrote that like six months ago and you're just posting it now?!? Chris: Ummm...?) ~ Chris.
You see kids, there is a lesson to be learned here. It's not what's on the outside that counts, it's what's in the inside...of your pants..Well, Shannon, it's pretty clear, I think you edged him out. There is too many details to mention them all, but I really liked the motorcycle and bedroom. Great Job!
Alright, it looks to me...yeah...you, in my opinion, beat glorious moon...sorry...had to do it. SO I like yours better...does that count as my vote? OK...better go pity shadow, Well done on the bedroom, and of course, the cop chopper! NICE JOB MATE!!
Wow, one of your best MOCs to date, Shannon! The police chopper was sick, the onvertible's tight [wait till Apple sees it] and the rest of the MOC was stellar. 5/5 for build and 5/5 for story, great job.
Great story and great pics to go along with it. I like the bedroom. That bed is great. Looks like he had a good day being a monster. Wonder what that means? I thought Shadows story was fun and his build good but this is more polished. It wasn't a knock out but you won the rounds and the match. garth
The brick-built cop bike is good -- okay, great -- okay, amazing -- okay, I stared at it in wonderment for a solid two minutes -- but that painting of the Nullarbor Plain in their bedroom puts this over the top. Johnny the sod headed freak of nature beats Johnny the Masturcheif killer!
Shadow hasn't posted yet, so maybe I'll must comment here again, but honestly, I think I'll prefer your entry anyway. Hilarious !!!!!!
A lot of nice little MOCs and funny jokes, that's all I was waiting for. Great work, Shannon !!!
5/5 (at least). Good luck, but for me, you've already won !
