Making Hash Browns
A tribute to one of my favorite webcomics, XKCD.
About this creation
Let's begin, shall we?

Step 1:
Gather ingredients. You'll need a small sack of potatoes (Please keep in mind exactly how many ingrates you plan on feeding), a tennis racket, at least a gallon of gasoline (It will vary with how long you plan on doing this), and the proper eating utensils.



Step 2:
Ignite your racket and serve the first potato. Once it is safely above your head, swing the racket. This will neatly slice and fry your potato at the SAME TIME saving you precious minutes that you can in turn spend on avoiding your family and friends.



Step 3:
Catch the flying food! It is recommended you have an eatin utensil on hand, such as the Super Spork seen here (Note: It is unknown whether this is a dangerous Spork/Spoon cross breed. Caution should be exercised.)



Warning:
There are about 14 different ways this time-saving technique can go wrong. Should you accidentally involve a Spork/Spoon hybrid, then that number increases to 17. Extreme caution is advisable. In order to negate these effects, however, you can wear an anti-static wrist strap. Nothing can go wrong if you have one of those.

Commentary from behind the Etch-a-Sketch:
Yes, this creation will be far less enjoyable if you've never read XKCD. I highly recommend it, but be warned that it does contain some (Okay, a good bit) of inappropriate material. You have been warned.
Anywho, onto the actual build! It was a nice, simple little creation and I really enjoyed it. I've been going all-out for complex and complicated builds lately, and it was fun to just sit back and build something from one of the few things that makes me laugh regularly. The flaming tennis racket was a challenge though... I really couldn't think of any way to mount those flames other than the bulky 'pack'. Oh well. And that's about it. Thanks for stopping by!

That's very true. It's a fun little joke that requires next to no previous knowledge.

I've not read the comic, but I think it unnecessary to appreciate the MOC. Funny stuff.~H

Thank you! I don't think future XKCD based scenes will be as minimalistic. It kind of unnerves me to see so much empty space...

Nice work, a fitting tribute. Minimalism at it's best.
