As Lord Havelock Vetinari from Ankh Morpork would say: LEARN THE WORDS. Now tie him up from his feet above the scorpion pit.

Seriously though, great job on this!

Seriously, good show there.

A simple and classic looking expression, which is pretty nice. Good job, Mr Strawberry. The Islander face used, suits well in this creation.  :sweet:

Wonderful and effective mime! I specially like the use of the black stick  :thumbup:

Anyway, I must feel a bit angry, because I had just finished to take photos of my own mime (exactly the same design...) and I was ready to post it here when I saw yours!  :sing: Well, I suppose I'll have to be faster the next time  :tongue:

What are the odds of that?

Although I haven't seen one in real life, mimes creep me out big time. And your MOC creeped me out.  :laugh: So you did a very nice job here! I love how one coin takes up the entire hat!  :laugh:

Am I missing something? What do you mean by snot? I assume it's an acronym by the way Oky Wan capitalized it?  :wacko:

SNOT stands for Studs Not On Top, which basically means that the studs on a brick aren't showing, or are being built sideways.

This would be an example of SNOT water:

Great Mime!  I can't see any way of improving it at all. Would it be OK if I added one to Brickington?

Welcome to Eurobricks Fezziwig,
Yeah, there's quite a learning curve for AFOL (adult fan of LEGO) acronyms.   :tongue:

  The SNOT referrence is a common mistake as SNOT refers to studs that are not oriented upwards, whereas covering the studs with tiles is not SNOT, but rather referred to as Tiling.
