The Darwin Awards . . Here's my second entry for the 2012 MocAthalon. It's for the team
The "Expendables. I built in the category of Darwin Awards: A throwback to Kelso's contest from a few years ago. Show someone unintentionally killing themselves in the most ironic way possible. The more crazier the better but it must be "grounded" (get it... that's a burial joke there...) in reality (to a point).
All the judges have been invited to Mr. Kelso's house. Spread throughout the rooms, havoc is sure to ensue...
In the lounge Kevin Walter and Chris Phipson discuss important issues...
Walter: "Hey Chris, check this out! Mark had some iocane poison lying around."
Phipson: "Awesome! Can I see it for a minute?"
Walter: "Sure, knock yourself out."
Phipson: "Heeheehee!" He empties the poison into his glass.
Phipson: "I challenge you to a battle of wits. Where is the poison? The battle of wits has begun. It ends when you decide and we both drink, and find out who is right... and who is dead."
Phipson: "Enough talk, now we drink!" He drains his glass. "What you don't know is that I spent the last few years building up an immunity to iocane powder."
Chris Phipson collapses.
Walter: "Ahh, my glasses! ARGH, my EYES!!!"
Kevin Walter collapses to the floor, glass fragments having been driven through his head by an ill-planned "facepalm".
Upstairs Blake Baer browses through some of Kelso's stuff...
Baer: "Hey Mark, I didn't know you had a claymore!"
Kelso: "Look but don't touch!"
Baer: "Yeah, whatever old man."
Baer: "Looks sharp."
Baer: "And heavy."
Mr. Baer commences swinging the massive blade. *Swish, swish, swish*
Downstairs Heath Flor, Mister Bones, and Mark Kelso hang out by "The Eye of Chaos"...
Flor: "Hey, I thought this was a costume party."
Flor: "Fine. Well, I'll go talk with Chris and Kevin."
Flor: "Looks like someone couldn't hold their liquor..."
Flor: "No point wasting good wine!"
Back in the LEGO room...
Kelso: "Thanks for helping me with the "Eye" Bones. It just needs that one panel to finish up the main infrastructure."
Bones: "Want me to pass it to you?"
Kelso: "Nah, I can get it."
*CRASH!* LEGO flies everywhere as the ceiling buckles and breaks, dropping over a hundred pounds of sharp plastic onto Mr. Kelso's back.
Fortunately Mr. Bones has a portable time machine, and he decides to go back in time to before Kelso's house was built so he could warn Kelso to reinforce the ceiling.
Unfortunately, he forgot that he was in the basement and his legs are trapped underground. Even worse, Kelso is just driving up to check out his new plot...
Mr. Kelso's LEGO room.
My favourite aspect of this room is the LEGO drawers here. I never imagined that LEGO stickers used on their intended piece would ever be useful.
The lounge. Trophies from creatures Kelso claims to have hunted are mounted on the walls, though only Phipson believes him.
The oddities room. (Sorry about the bloodstains, Mr. Kelso hasn't bothered to wipe the floor yet...)
The entrance hall. (Not featured in the story, I just had some extra space.) A fountain dominates the view.
The roof has some lettering on it... See if you can guess what it would say if the other half of the house was built.
A cherry tree.
And at the back Kelso has some pet chickens. And one of their relatives...
Thanks for stopping by!
Oh, and this is all in good fun without any disrespect meant.
