Red to Green

Lego Oshkosh Striker Firetruck

This TLCB writer was busily watching Taylor Swift videos today when a sound most peculiar arose from the Elves’ cage room. It was as though a VHS machine was trying to eat a small woodland creature.

Sigh. A traipse downstairs revealed no woodland creatures of any kind, but it did uncover an Elf, two thirds of which was indeed inside the VHS machine, being rammed further into the mechanism by several of its colleagues.

Another sigh, Mr. Airhorn was awakened from his slumber, and the aforementioned Elf removed from his antique televisual prison.

The cause of the disruption was this, Cologebrick‘s superbly detailed Town-scale Oshkosh Striker airport fire truck in a gloriously bright shade of green. Apparently fire trucks aren’t allowed to be green (they’re red), and thus an Elven disagreement spiralled into its usual violence.

We have since sat all the Elves down and taught them that whilst some colours are more traditionally associated with certain things, anything can be any colour, any colour can be anything, and the world is all the better for it.

The discovering Elf has been awarded two Smarties (green and red) for its troubles, and you can see more of Colognebrick’s neat green Oshkosh on Flickr via the link above.
