Awesome! Great job, he looks like a proper ponderer of the flawn.
And I'm very flattered that you followed my idea to build a flawnponderer's workshop :)

Since not everyone knows what a Flawnponderer's workshop is, and as we already established there is no Wikipedia article about it, here is my brief explanation to King Peter I for anyone willing to read:

Classic-Castle.com Chat wrote:PeterI: what medieval building should I build?
Aliencat: A flawnponderer's workshop
Aliencat: With a nice refurbal table
Aliencat: Make sure you add a fireplace, they need those

PeterI: What is a flawnponderer, if i may ask
PeterI: Wiki has no flawnponderer page
Aliencat (to PeterI): Evil wiki, I will write in a letter of complaint rightaway!
Trevor: if I had to guess, I'd say it's someone who spends their time pondering flawns
PeterI: Can People tell me?

< intermezzo where we dictionary.com the meaning of "flawn" and "ponderer"

PeterI: Thinker of pie?
Aliencat: So basically a flawnponderer is someone who thinks about those kinds of pie a lot, and does it for a living
Aliencat: He even gets his own workshop

Foamrider: Thats my dream.
PeterI: so he just thinks of pie and people pay him?
PeterI: so I put my cook hat in action?
Aliencat: Yes sir
Aliencat: That can be his thinking hat

PeterI: or he is just a philosopher of pies?
Aliencat: Yes, I don't think a flawnponderer actually makes pies
Aliencat: Otherwise he'd be a baker

PeterI: yea
PeterI: well, so he just thinks of diffrent pies
PeterI: and then he takes his plan to the baker, the baker makes the pie, and the baker gives it to the king?
Aliencat (to PeterI): If the king doesn't like it, it's off with the baker's head, so the flawnponderers weren't very popular with the bakers
PeterI: ah
Aliencat: If a flawnponderer didn't like a certain baker, he'd just give him an awful recepy
Aliencat: And a few days later, off with his head, flawnponderer doesn't even get involved

PeterI: WOW!
PeterI: so how does the flawnponderer make a living?
Aliencat: They lived mostly off of money from bakers to get good recepies, sort of like the maffia
Aliencat: "You don't pay, I give you a bad recepy and it's off with your head"
Aliencat: So a flawnponderer could terrorize a whole city's bakers

PeterI: I will have to order 10 cook hats because I see not 1 cook will be dead
Aliencat: Sometimes there were more than one flawnponderer, and they'd have gangwars in the streets with the peasant militia enlisted with the money from the bakers
Trevor: flawnponderer=pie engineer. he doesn't make pies, he just creates them
PeterI: But dosen't the flawnponderer have to have some baking experience when he wants to make recipies?
Aliencat: They'd also do the occasional horse-and-carriage ram into a bakery to keep the bakers on their feet
Aliencat (to PeterI): The flawnponderer doesn't care about knowledge, he cares only about money and power
Aliencat: It would often happen that a flawnpondered would ask a baker to make something he couldn't possibly make
Aliencat: But what could the baker say?

PeterI: ok!
PeterI: So I am getting off this chat
PeterI: and getting to work


So I just want to say to King Peter, that you did an excellent job turning something that started off as a joke into an actual MOC of the very workshop we were talking about. Good work making something made-up into something real! We should do this more often :)
Next time you can think up the non-existent profession and I'll make a MOC of it! Or the whole chat can join in and we can have a quick little 24-hour building contest! I'm so excited thinking of the ideas we could come up with!

Yeah I know you were playing along with the joke.
Thanks for being a good sport and building it anyway! It came out great.

Lol. I should make another MOC where you and me ponders, for diffrents of pies. Aliencat is not included because he told me he will make a rivaling flawnpondering workshop.
