Once upon a time there was an ant and a shoe.
The ant was walking by one day and passed the shoe.
[ Ant ] Hi shoe!
[ Shoe ] Hi ant! Where are you going?
[ Ant ] Just for a walk. Would you like to come with me?
[ Shoe ] I can't walk... I always just sit here. But I like it here.
[ Ant ] Oh, but there are so many great things to see everywhere! I'd like to show you.
[ Shoe ] It's not so bad to just sit here. I kind of like it.
[ Ant ] Oh, trust me, Shoe! The world is full of great things. I'd like to be your friend. I am strong and I can carry you.
[ Shoe ] Do I have to do anything?
[ Ant ] No, just sit back and relax... I'll show you all kinds of wonderful new places!
So the ant carried the shoe everywhere he went. He showed the shoe all the wonderful things in his world.
The shoe loved it. Everything was so different than what he was used to!
And even though the ant had to carry the shoe, he enjoyed their friendship and the cool shade that the shoe provided.
The ant and the shoe became good friends.
[ Shoe ] You're right, Ant. This is wonderful! Thank you for showing me all these great new things!
[ Ant ] That's what friends are for. I can take you nice places, and you protect me from the sun. But you're starting to get a little heavy, Shoe.
One day, the ant started walking somewhere new. The ant knew it was a nice place, but the shoe thought it was strange, and a little scary.
[ Shoe ] Hey Ant, don't go this way. I want to go back.
[ Ant ] I've always wanted to take you here. You'll really like it.
[ Shoe ] No. Take me back. I didn't think you were going to take me to strange places like this. I thought you were going to give me a ride everywhere nice. Now turn around. Carry me back! Now!
[ Ant ] Shoe, I am just trying to be your friend, but you're not being very nice to me. Maybe I should put you down for a while.
[ Shoe ] No! I like being carried around everywhere. I'll squish you if you try to put me down!
[ Ant ] What? Shoe! How could you say such a terrible thing? I thought we were friends!
[ Shoe ] I like you Ant. You carry me everywhere and I don't have to do any work. But I'm bigger than you, so you better do what I say! Now take me where I want to go! And if you don't, I'll squish you!
The ant was very sad and a little scared. He still wanted to be friends, but he didn't know what else to do.
So he carried the shoe wherever the shoe wanted to go. The shoe still acted nice to him, but ordered him around a lot and didn't care what the ant thought.
The ant didn't understand what went wrong.
So he just kept walking.

This story has no ending. There is no moral to this story. Some stories, like life, keep going, even when you don't have all the answers. Sometimes, you just have to hope it will work out in the end.
~ ~ ~
But you can finish this story!
What do you think will happen to the ant and the shoe?
Can the ant and the shoe be friends?
Why does the ant like the shoe?
What made the shoe become selfish?
Have you ever felt this way? What did you do?
I know what happens next! The ant got sick of the shoe bossing him around so the ant decided to throw the shoe in the street where it died a tragic death. The moral: Treat others as you want to be treated..... Or Else!!! LOLZ!!!

Another great moc Sean! I really like the plot the little story has and the way you did the shoe and the ant is genius! There really detailed. Anyway, well done! Keep it up! P.S. Sean, you've got to see this Moc Mark Kelso made, it's really funny. http://www.mocpages.com/moc.php/103616
Congratulations Sean! 100,000 mocs on Mocpages! Thank you for starting this wonderful site!
P.S. Excellent moc! The shoe and the ant look excellent. I was gonna do something like this, but it looks like you beat me to it:) Once again, great work, and thank you for making Mocpages such a special place!-Tom
I think the shoe is acting rather rude because some sand started to collect inside him during their journey to the beach, and as we all know, sand leads to discomfort, discomfort leads to grouchiness, grouchiness leads to rudeness, and rudeness leads to tyranny. Or something along those lines. Great build.
hey Sean, i tried to contact you through your website, but i'm not sure if you got my message, because it's been like two weeks since i sent it. i was pretty much saying that i would like some advice from you on how i could improve my MOCs, and if a career in Lego like yourself could be in my future. If you have the time to get back to me i would really appreciate it.
Once again Sean, I love it! I really love how you made the shoe hollow. at first when i looked at it, i thought it was smaller, but when i looked at the detail, i noticed that you made it a lot bigger, something that we all expect of you. Keep up the amazing work! and please check out some of my MOC's. I'd especially love it if you would look at my Barrett .50cal!
Similiar to what Sebeus said, but with a twist, I think that the shoe will ask the ant to go to a dangerous place, but the ant says it's dangerous. The shoe dosen't listen and when they get there the shoe realized it's mistake and apologizes. However, it is too late and the area almost kills them when the shoe lets the ant crawl inside so it's protected, but the shoe dies.
Nicely done, I think the Shoe will order the ant to take him to a place he wants to see but the ant sais it's a dangerous place, the shou treatens him again and the ant goes to that place, on that place they both die
So then the Ant brought the demanding shoe to the land where all shoes begin, the shoe factory. He showed the shoe that he should feel lucky, because he has a friend that he should care for, because these shoes at the factory were being hidden away in boxes for all of eternity. The shoe thanked him for this insight and they went out for ice cream. The End.
