Hitler: "They lose me after the Bunker scene"

But no, at the last minute, honest, Guv, the teacher said we had to have our material for the stop-motion photography project ready by TOMORROW.
So I asked if I could have Ben round this evening and of course that was a no, WHY can't everything I want happen by magic instantly and all my regular appointments pushed back by a day? I'm sure the Prime Minister wouldn't mind declaring it Monday II, the world could adapt, right?
So I waived my right to Minecraft and set to work. I have been designated Lego Provider as I show off about how much I have. So when Jof got back we all went into my room and started emptying the boxes and assembling the scene.
Our uplifting stop-motion story is about Legolas Cheese, a soldier. He gets his legs blown off by a land mine during a Black Hawk Down incident and goes on to win Olympic gold at swimming against his rivals Ronald McDonald, who is a tall clown with a big afro, and Conner Chapman who is in a film that Ben has seen.

So the others are doing the swimming pool scene props, I was tasked with creating the wartime diorama in which our eponymous hero Legolas takes on an anti-personnel mine and loses, becoming Legless Legolas. So straight away I went for the Millennium Falcon and a public toilet from the Lego road-builders range and a large battleship with no deck, and Krusty the Clown.
I was persuaded to keep my eyes on the prize and in meedle of no time we had a decent military engagement with bunker, horse, downed helicopter, barbed wire, and right in the middle, Legolas stepping on some dynamite which we will be able to stop-motion into a series of gouts of flame.
Then I went swimming and ate pasta and played Minecraft, all the usual stuff. But I did have to tidy my room.
