At long (long, long, long) last, part 2 of The Ocean/Phipson Collaboration...
About this creation
Welcome to part 2 of the Ocean/Phipson collaboration! Shanomac was kind enough to write this little story for you and guess who finally got around to building it! On with the tale...
Fred gets outta bed: "Well, another day at the box factory! Life sure is sweet. Hon, you seen my car keys?"
Wilma: "No sorry babe."
Fred: Oh man, now I gotta get the stinking bus with all those LOSERS! Dang it!"
Fred: (thinking) *man this bites. Stupid bus was late, then it got a flat, then some crazy whino keeps trying to get me to give him a foot massage-what next?!*
Fred: "ARRRGGGH! That's it!"
Later, at the Mayor’s office…
Fred: "...and that, dear sir, is why I'm not leaving until I get your guarantee to fix the public transport system!"
Mayor: "You know I could have you arrested, Fred, on the spot. But...I like you; you've got some spark, fire, passion.
Mayor: "This town could do with some new blood. Congratulations Mr. Fredson-you're our new Mayor!"
"Wait till the fellas hear about THIS..."
That night, while celebrating at the local pub…
Fred: "Oh, hello mishta prez"
Fred: "Whatsh da madda, I fout u'd be happy being prez n all..?"
Obama: "Oh, I'm just bummed out. Didn't realize what I was getting myself into. My predecessor left me a little going away present…"
Fred doesn't appear to hear: "Say, datsh awwwsome dude, wanna arm wrestle?"
Obama: "Tell you what, my good man. If you win this arm wrestle, I'll anoint you as the new President of the United States! And since I'm still the president, you have to obey my command. Understand?"
Fred: "Sure, whadever u say Mr Cozby, sir…"
After Obama lets poor Fred win…
"Yay!!! I beat Bill Cozzzzbe!"
Obama: "Take him away boys!"
The next morning in the Oval Office…
General: "Mr President sir?"
general: "Ah...sir...the outgoing president Obama ordered that you be briefed on the situation in Taiwan".
general: "Well sir, it seems after President Bush ordered us to invade Taiwan it upset the Chinese considerably more than we thought; they're threatening a nuclear strike if we don't immediately withdraw."
Fred: "Oh, I guess that was Bush's going away gift to Obama. Ha-ha."
General: "We're awaiting your order sir."
Fred: "Bloody hell...I need some rest man; my head's killing me. Just nuke the #*$@s..."
General: "b-but sir-"
Fred: "SHHHH! Hungover president here! A little quite time please? Is that too much to ask?!"
General: "...as you...wish sir..."
General: "...and satelite imaging reveals no survivors in the northern hemisphere sir."
Fred: "Hm. Well there you go eh? Those nukes really do pack a punch..."
General: "Sir, shall we conduct a survey of the southern hemisphere for survivors there?"
Wilma: "At least we've got each other honey. Mmmm, this spa is lovely; how about we-ouch-what is that?!"
Fred: "Pft! THERE were my keys the whole time. Why would they be in my jocky strap?"...
Fourth wall commentary. And that dear friends was the rise and fall of Fred Fredson. Written by Shannon Ocean (a long, long time ago) and illustrated (FINALLY) by your's truly. I was supposed to have this done months ago but then moctag came up and then work got in the way and Blah Blah Blah... you don't wanna hear it. Anyway, any commentary on the story can be directed to Shannon, the mocs... that's my fault.
The story was centered around how one small incident in the life of the most insignificant man (in this case, Fred losing his keys) can lead to the end of the world as we know it.
the only scene I'm not happy with is the mayor's office. I had this grand vision of a wood paneled office with velvet curtains and a wet bar... you know, mobbed up. I really mailed it in cause if I didn't get this done today then it would have had to wait another week!
Now that it's done (*takes a deep sigh of relief*) I can get to work on my next project. speaking of which, I'm still missing a few ballots...
Keep it blocky everyone ~ Chris
Addition August 15, 2008. Mocpages thinks this review is too long for the comment section so...
Hey Will, thanks for leaving your e-mail so I could write you there and not embarrass you in public. Oh right, I forgot, you left your "stones" in your mommies purse so I guess we'll have to do this here. First off, if you read this entire moc you would know that I didn't write the story. So, that being said, how do you know if I'm a democrat or not? For all you know I could be a libraterian. Now then, I don't discuss politics with anyone because I feel it causes to many fights between friends. I think everyone is entitled to their opinion just as you are. But, when you express that opinion in such a manner as you did, not only are you the one who comes off looking a fool, but an uneducated, illiterate fool at that. Now, I hope you've learned your lesson and next time you do something like this, leave your e-mail so I don't have to put you in your place in public. ~ Chris
I now respect Chris. JOE he is a Police Man.
Those jobs are hard and dangerous. It's not Republican propaganda! Republican propaganda would be putting posters all over town reminding people of Bill Ayers!
And yet another one misses the point... I'll just stop here till these people learn how to direct their unrequited political bloodlust thrown around on a "LEGO" site, to the appropriate person. And then (and more importantly) learn how to READ the ENTIRE description before they comment. Why can't you people grasp that not only did I NOT write this story, but that "Obama" was used as a conduit for the progression of the story, NOT a political prediction... Never mind, I give up.
First of all, great build. 2nd, Love the shark on the wall, and the attempt at photoshop. Though, if that came true, that would scare me. Though, I am not sure which would scare me more, Barack in office (PLEASE do not vote for him, I beg of you, he scares me to death!!!), or China getting Nuked (that means we get no more stuffs! Remember, everything was made in China, accept for hot dogs...) So, the moral of the story, do not vote for Barack!!
hmm, not sure what to think about that one. thanks for the great review, i should do a recolor in the mystery machine colors. i was originaly going to do a green/white two tone scheme, but thought red would look better against the grass. oh, im not related to m. knight, that i know of... Peace - Patrick
I like it

Hey I'm not quite sure what to make of that first scene or the story, but it sure is a cool build! Good work mate.
Reporter: "Mr President, why did you just nuke the whole world?"
President Fred: "Uhhh, culd u repetu thut quzion?"
Reporeter: "Why did you condemn Earth for centuries"
President Fred: "Uhhh, min-e ov da scientustz sa dat globul wureng iz a mith, so mi gr8 descizun just silensssed-u thim."
Now, it's my turn to ask. What were you guys doing to come up with this? Hopefully you just fell on your heads. There's some whacked out imagination goin' on here. Lots of great detail in your pieces. I understood that door was supposed to be a window. It's all about representin' in the LEGO world. garth
Chris,that was one of the most hilarous MOCs I've ever read,and I especially like this line *I beat Bill Cosby* HA! Dude I was laughing for about two hours ;)Awesome job Chris,it's good that you finally got it done-Later~LL
well,thats some story,he sure is an unlucky guy,I have give a lot of credit for building all those mocs,thats suh-weet!I do't really like the mayors office though,there should more detail in it,and he desk just wasn't enough.but,the bar was great,I liked the house,and the nuke base is cool,and I love the nuke scene!way to go,keep 'em coming,and did you know you've ben trolltagged?
Well my friend, it was well worth the wait! I gotta give ya props on all of the MOC's...a lot of different locations here, with a lot of building, so nicely done there. Great bar scene (love the shark over the bar), and the A-bomb in the distance has got to be a first. Now about the bedroom scene, I have to express a bit of concern...I mean only someone with years of experience in such matters could accomplish such a vibrant and realistic portrayal of an S&M couple as you did!(of course, only someone experiened in such matters could RECOGNIZE said portrayal, so what does that say about me?)
The first pics (in the bedroom) made me laughs like no other MOC before !!! The whole story is hilarious too, very well done, and with great quality pics. But seriously, even if there were only the first pictures, it would be still a 10/5 MOC. AWESOMELY HILARIOUS !!!
And I thought it was gonna be Goldman giving me S&#t about the stripes... And Alex, I know it's "actually" a door but it was supposed to kinda look like two windows that... never mind, I like the Winchester Mansion idea better. Good call.
Oh man: fantastic job with the builds! So bloody funny! Your scenes in this were all high quality stuff man-you brought it all to life PERFECTLY! BTW you're now gonna be know as "the bedroom scene guy" XD
The initial S&M scene (wow, high school flashback, you know?) is amusing enough to make me overlook the fact that the Mayor appears to have a door two feet off the ground where a window should be, leading to nothing but a wall. It must be the Winchester Mystery Mayor's Office (that humor might be a bit too localized, pardon me. Any Bay Area residents in da house?). A great MOC, a great story, a great cautionary tale for anyone hoping to arm-wrestle their way to glory.
Huh, I gotta lose my keys more often. I don't think I've seen as much tiled work from you until I saw this. Well, better get building. I still have the Statue of Liberty to build from my new Skyline set.
Pssst! Don't tell Ocean, but the story ain't exactly grabbing me... case of bad timing maybe, seeing it right after his great "Johnny had a bad day" thing. But some sweet MOCing saves the day! Except for the flag -- the stars I can give you a pass on at that scale, but skipping three stripes...
That bedroom scene was hot, yet disturbing. You've officially made me look at my lego women differently. I wonder what they do when I'm away? The Oval Office, bunker, and the nuclear explosion were all great, actually, more like fantastic. Now, if you'll excuse me, I have to get check on all mt female figs...
