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).






Grandpa: Well I am glad that you two could come and visit me today, because I have a special story to tell.

Grandson 1: Thanks, Grandpa!


Grandson 2: Is it something violent? I hope so, otherwise I won't like it.

Grandpa: Haha, don't worry, boy, not only is it bloody but its a true tale, from when I was a young man...


When I was a young man, I saved my cash and bought me an apartment, here, this apartment that you two are sitting in right now.


It was a new building, so my neighbor in the above floor also just moved in. His name was Jean FenÍtre, and he just moved in from Toronto.


Jean was a nice fellow. His trade was windows.


He sold high-quality windows to people, and he was very proud of his windows.


A little too proud, if you ask me.

Anyways, he claimed that his windows were shatterproof, breakproof, impossible to destroy.


One of the potential customers wanted some proof. If he was going to invest his money in Jean's windows, then he definitely had the right to know that Jean wasn't bluffing.


After briefly stating that he would prove to them that he wasn't bluffing, he ran towards the window.


And he jumped!

And bless his soul, that window didn't break.


But it did pop out of its frame.


Aye, even when he hit the ground that window didn't break! That businessman bought those windows and eventually bought Jean's company, since Jean had sort of, well, died.

Thanks to Jean for helping to clean out the gene pool.

The Build:






Without figures.


The upstairs apartment.


Jean and his (in)famous window!


Ol' Grandpa

This was based on a real incident that was actually awarded a Darwin Award in 1996.

Thanks for viewing! :)

never hurts to cleanse the [minifig] gene pool once in a while, huh?

Nice! For whatever reason, though, the first couple of times I read "window" as "widow." That... turned out oddly.

Quoting Stuart Lucas I think this is my favourite of your MOCathlon builds, nicely detailed and a good story. Well done for all of them (sorry I haven't had time to comment on the others!)

The detail is great! Especially with the outside of the building. Come to think of it, I know of a company that won't buy high-quality windows: Apple!

Oh, I love the plexiglass idiot! I tell this to every person who leans on a plexiglass window and the reaction they get is priceless... I think I've kept the numbers low in recent years or something :D...
