I thought it was hilarious and very creative! What do you think about it?

Very nice, cannons were often decorated as dragons, snakes or in this case a crock! :pir-classic:
Why do you need TLC to make sets for you, all you really need is parts...be creative!

The build a frigate tutorail!

I'm still wondering where that cannonball is from...

And when we touch the powder off the 'gator lost his mind."

I also on B-shelf. I believe that cannonball is a regular ball with a hole in it, and the little spoke of the fire attached to it.

Ha ha!  :pir_laugh2: This reminds me of an old song by Johnny Horton.
"We fired and fire till the barrel melted down, so we grabbed an alligator and we fought another round. We filled his head with cannonballs and powdered his behind, and when we touched the powder off the gator lost his mind!"  :pir-grin:
(That was "The Battle of New Orleans", by the way.)

song already posted cp. redblade. But this is pretty creative, and in some ways, accurate. I wish they didn't take the battle of new orleans lego off youtube :pir-cry_sad:

I am so glad you said that because that song and this enitre topic was giving me a serious sense of dejavu.  As for the MOC, it doesn't work for me unless it was placed into a comedic setting in which case it would be fine and a green croc would be funnier.

Lordy, I didn't realize Johnny Horton was so well-known. Ah, well, we can agree on one thing here: He was a damn fine talent who was taken from us way too early. "Sink The Bismark" is one of my favourite songs and I don't care who knows it.
