Story Title; Mine Under His Feet!
Two lemmings were trapped in a world populated with sandy bricks and pyramids. One of the lemmings was a blocker, and the other was just an ordinary walker lemming. The blocker lemming looked really sad, so the walker lemming walked up to him and asked him what was wrong.
"What's wrong?" asked the walker lemming to the blocker lemming.
The blocker lemming sighed. "I'm sad."
"Why are you sad?"
"Because once you are turned into a blocker, you will always remain a blocker for the rest of your life."
"Wow, that is sad."
Suddenly, a light bulb appeared above the head of the walker lemming! He had an idea!
"Wait! I have an idea!" said the walker lemming.
From his rather deceptively deep pocket, the walker lemming obtained an impressive looking pickaxe. He held it high above the air, allowing its silvery metal to glisten from the bright sun.
"A pickaxe?" queried the blocker lemming, "How would that work?"
"Well..." the other lemming began to explain, "...by using the pickaxe, I will mine under your feet. The soil under your feet will give way, and you will fall through the open space and become a walker again!"
"Will that really work?" asked the blocker, a little worried.
The miner nodded assuringly. "Trust me."
The miner used the pickaxe and dug diagonally towards the blocker lemming; true to his word, the pickaxe struck the earth underneath the blocker's feet, and the blocker was finally free to walk again!
"Wow! Your plan really worked! I'm free!" said the ex-blocker, who was now an ordinary lemming once more, "I mean... my feet are profusely bleeding from the pickaxe, but I'm still free! Thank you so much!"
"No problem!" replied the miner, "Always a pleasure to help a lemming in need!"
As the freed blocker happily made his way towards the exit, the miner lemming... did not fare as well; once he became a miner... he could not stop mining. The earth underneath him was becoming thinner and thinner, until finally, the miner lemming broke through the earth and fell fifty feet into a pit of water... which was filled with piranhas. And jellyfish. But mostly piranhas.
