Alternate title: The Figure of Speech Game.

 

Create LEGO figures of speech! Be as absurd as possible! The following poster will then have to do his or her best to explain what the figure of speech means.

 

Examples:

Post 1: "That really grinds my gear functions."

Post 2: "A figure of speech pertaining to irritation, derived from silly Technic Toa figures.

             That essay was a real brick under my foot."

Post 3: "A figure of speech derived from stepping on a LEGO brick: in other words, something painful.

             That dude's a real Nex."

 

So those are pretty straightforward examples, but the point is not to be boring like me.

 

Rules:

1. LEGO-related!

2. I dunno, that's it really.

 

--

 

Let's start with: Like taking Kraata from a Rahkshi.

fishers gets the prize for actually playing correctly. You gotta give your interpretation of the figure of speech in the post above and then give your own.

Also, I may have taken an English figure of speech and inserted some Bionicle terms, but that doesn't mean that it means the same thing as the standard English equivalent...

 

Anyway!

 

A figure of speech signifying a Matoran who is tense, or "tightly wound," so to speak. Derived from the taught strings in tennis rackets, because Matoran play tennis. Duh.

A phrase created by citizens of Makuhero City to mean someone who is old and cranky and enjoys chasing others away from his viscinity, like a territorial Frostelus. Also has to use diapers.Makuheroans know of he Frostelus as Frostelus can travel thprugh dimensions, which explains their territorialism, as they are guarding their custom TARDISes.
