Olmec: legends of the hidden temple with your guide Kirk fogg and here he is now

(Kirk swings in across the moat)

Kirk: hey everyone nice to see you, nice to see you olmec. Welcome to legends of the hidden temple the rooms are filled with lost treasures protected by mysterious Mayan temple guards only olmec knows the legend behind each of the treasures in his temple which one are we going to hear about today?

Kirk: All right well one of these 6 teams will get a chance to retrieve the folio will it be
The Red Jaguars? The Blue Barracudas? The Green Monkeys? The Orange Iguanas? The Purple Parrots? Or the Silver Snakes? There going to have to pass some tough mental and physical tests yet only one team will enter olmecs temple but first they have to cross the moat and olmec will tell us how they will have to do it today

Olmec: before each team a beam has fallen into the moat when Kirk gives the signal the first player will step on the beam and cross it. Once the first person has crossed it?s the second persons tern to cross, however each team player must take with him a backpack of supplies if you fall into the water or if your hands or knees touch the beam you will have to go back and start again. Once both players are on the same side run over and hit the gong the first 4 teams to hit there gongs will move on the next round

As the quest continues, it?s now time for Olmec to tell us about the missing recording tape of Richard Nixon. But pay attention, because your knowledge of the legend can bring you a step closer to Olmec?s Temple

Olmec: elected January 20th 1960 the 37th president was Richard Nixon. Even after losing to president Kennedy in 1959 he finally beat became president but a scandal involving the water gate hotel cost him his presidency after admitting that he tape recorded conversations in the white house he left the role of presidency and his vice Lyndon Johnson succeeded him some of the tapes were destroyed others were circulated for years but one tape disappeared and made its way to the temple your quest is to find the missing tape and bring it here

Kirk: Olmec where is the tape?

Olmec: the missing tape of Richard Nixon can be found in the jester?s court.

Kirk: OK. Teams, you are standing on the Steps of Knowledge. In a minute, Olmec will ask you a question. If you think you know the answer, stomp down on the ancient marking in front of you. If you?re right, you?ll move down to the next level. If you?re wrong or run out of time, I?m going to give the other teams a chance to answer. The first two teams to make it to the bottom level will be one step closer to Olmec?s Temple. Olmec, we are now ready for your first question

Olmec: was Richard Nixon defeated in?

Kirk: purple parrots

Purple parrots: Kennedy

Olemc: that is correct

Olmec: was Nixon a Republican a

Kirk: orange iguanas

Orange Iguanas: a Republican

Olmec: correct

Kirk: next

Olmec: where did the scandal take place?

Kirk: purple parrots

Kirk: welcome back to legends now the glory goes to the fastest and the strongest so lets here it for Quinn and Joe of the purple parrots and David and Lizzy of the orange iguanas (applause) why don?t you guys go get ready for the temple games  (kids leave) the teams are now competing for pendants of life there going to need those pendants to protect them from those dreaded temple guards as they make there way through the temple there are three temple games olmec will you please tell us about temple game number one.

Olmec: the scandal took place at the water gate hotel. Now you have to climb to the top of the water gate hotel. When Kirk gives the signal jump through the first hole onto the second floor than do it again. When you get to the top yell Nixon?s catch mark phrase ?I am not a crook? the first to do so wins

Kirk: to the top. Let?s put one-minute on the clock. On your mark get set go

(Event occurs)

Kirk: aright Joe got there first got to the top first and shouted I am not a crook first so purple parrot gets the half pendant (applause) orange iguanas can catch up in the next game its worth a half pendant Olmec tell us about it

Olmec: Nixon won the majority vote in 69 now you have to guess which party will get the most votes when Kirk gives the signal plug either the democratic hole, republican hole, or the green party hole. If you guess right your team will score a point the first team but if your wrong water will squirt you the first team to get 6 guesses right or the most after 60 seconds wins

Kirk: these kids are too young to vote. 60 seconds on your mark get set go

(Event occurs)

Kirk: well no one scored so you both get the half pendant whoever wins the next game goes to the temple Oh Olmec

Olmec: some of the security tapes were destroyed now your going to destroy some when Kirk gives the signal one member of each team is going to place a tape between there feet grab the trap ease and give there partner the tape there partner will swing back and destroy the tape. The team who destroys the most tapes wins

Kirk: whoever wins this goes to temple 60 seconds. On your mark get set go

(Event occurs)

Kirk: let see purple parrots got 5 and so did orange that gives purple parrots the win and purple parrots you are going to temple. Orange iguanas tried but didn?t make it but we have a great parting gift for theme

Kirk: the purple parrots  proved themselves worthy now they have the right to enter Olmec?s temple. But first Olmec is going to give them some advice on how to retrieve the missing recording tape of richard nixon

Olmec: You could start by running up the stairs to The Crypt. Grab the books from the skeletons and pass into the leap of faith jump the chasm, and you could choose to go up into The King?s Storeroom. Smash the clay pots to find the key that will lead you into The Cryptic room solve the math problem and you could enter the room of the ancient warriors place your self in the right armor, and open the door to The Shrine of the Silver Monkey. Assemble the statue, and you may be headed toward The Lightning Room. Connect the right two cords crate lightning to open the door to The Pharaoh?s Secret Passage. Climb down the tunnel to the bottomless pit where you could smash through to the Dark rain Forest, but beware the Temple Spirits that may inhabit the trees. Pour the water into the right chalice to make it rain and enter the jesters court place yourself against the right wall painting to enter the laser light room break the covers to reveal the white light then race through the chasm crawl through the crevasse and race down the through the temple gates. The choices are yours and yours alone. You won 2 pendants in the temple games. Who?s going first? (Wait for response) Very well, Joe, when Kirk gives the signal, you?ll race through the gate into the temple and make your way towards the missing recording tapes of richard nixon. Hidden inside the temple are temple guards assigned to protect three specific rooms. You can trade your pendant for an extra life and go on, but if you?re caught without a pendant, you?ll be taken out of the temple and it will be quinn?s  turn to try her luck. if you reach the tape, all the doors in the temple will instantly unlock, and the temple guards will vanish. Return through the gates with the tape within three minutes, and you will both be handsomely rewarded. And here?s how: (reads prizes).

KIRK:
OK. Let?s get into position can they get the tape. Mouthpieces in. Olmec, will you lower your gate please? (Wait for gate to lower). Put three minutes on the clock. On your mark. Get set. Go!

Name of Artifact: missing security tapes of Richard Nixon
Season: 4
Layout: 6
Result: Ran out of time
Time Remaining: N/A
Team: purple parrots
Pendants Won: 2
Location of Artifact: The jesters court

Summary: joe did a great job first he entered the crypt then he jumped the chasm then entered observatory where a temple guard was then into the warriors then into the shrine where a second temple guard was he was captured and taken out. Quinn made great time put the monkey together and with 1 minute 15 seconds left made it into the lightning ball room one. when disaster struck. quinn could not figure out which power cords opened the tunnel she would plug 2 in than unplug both and try another 2 she didn?t think to leave the correct cord in (note: during this the camera reveals joe who has a priceless look on his face during this) she eventually gets it slides down,  bust through the wall climbs into the dark rain forest and with the last 4 seconds spilles the water.  One thing mysterios about this run. the team won 2 pendants in the games but when she enters the observatory she clearly has only half a pendant. Who knows what happened.

A couple of problems I have with this legend.

1) This submission was, if I remember correctly, a joke. As in not to be made into an actual legend.
2) The legend legend is way too short. It's barely even a legend, it looks like it was copied and summarized from an encyclopedia.
3) There's only 3 and a half questions on the steps of knowledge, and they're worded poorly.
4) Various capitilization and grammar errors occur throughout.

Heh, I was waiting for someone to write a "gag artifact" episode.  If you feel like another one, "Hitler's Brain", "The Can of Sir Walter Raleigh", and "The Broken Toilet Handle of Thomas Crapper" are all up for grabs.   :D

The capitalization & grammar makes it a little hard to read, just saying. Also, not to be a nudge, but didn't LBJ succeed JFK after JFK got shot?

"That is correct."  Gerald Ford succeeded Nixon, not LBJ.
