A Construction Minion Pig is working on top of a staircase with his hammer, but accidentally cut hold of it and fell. He started coming down the staircase and then picks it up, then goes back up again. Then, the same thing happen, but this time, another Constrution Minion Pig came, compares his saw with a hammer, and then takes the hammer, leaving his saw behind. Then the first Construction minion Pig finally reached the bottom, but was surprised yet confused of how his hammer turned into a saw. He then "wobbled" the saw and becomes fine with it, and goes back up to work. He used the saw, then fell from the staircase. He comes stands back up consciously, and the saw fell on his head (safely).
