A fine upstanding gentleman named Thomas Crapper invented the flushing toilet. It was an outstanding invention which allowed the everyday person to carryout their business without the need to leave the house… or dig a hole in the backyard. But what does a crapper have to do with LEGO Pirates you may ask?
The enterprising Nick Lafreniere took it upon himself to recreate this technological marvel in LEGO form. But he didn’t stop there! He took things one step further and implemented a clever way for fearsome buccaneers to stash their treasure. After all, the treasure hungry Imperial Guards, and the even greedier Imperial Armada probably won’t be too keen to go bobbing around a latrine in the search of gold.
This is an example of imaginative play. If you think it’s disgusting, make sure you take a closer look before you completely judge it!
