The Thread Master

Standard

There are pros and cons to joining and using Facebook. Though many use Facebook to shamelessly promote the wonderful accomplishments and adorable looks of two incredibly beautiful boys . . .er, um, I mean, many use Facebook to promote themselves and/or their family in some way, shape or form. Of course, I’ve merely observed this practice with Facebook. I would never use Facebook to do such a thing.

Then, there are others who use Facebook to entertain. One person steps up to the stand, hand selects others to join him in a quest for intelligent conversation, strange ideas, mind-bending questions, vanity tags, junk, bacon, cookies, euphemisms and a passion for Regretsy. Well, some folks and I have met this person. We call him: Thread Master.

Thread Master has stitched together a plethora of people, mingling within various Threads. The Thread Master’s accomplishment is no small feat, either. Others, myself included, have tried to create one’s own group of ‘threaders’, only to find the deafening sound of crickets.

Yes, I bow down to the Thread Master, who has managed countless threads for over a year. And, as I bow, I find it hard not to compare my Thread Master to ‘Toy Story’.

As a matter of fact, it is as if we (the Threadheads) are living a version of Toy Story. Our Thread Master is the Claw, and we are the Aliens.

Threadheads: “The Claw!”
Threadhead #1: “The Claw is our master.”
Threadhead #2: “The Claw chooses who will go and who will stay.”
Alien: “I have been chosen! Farewell, my friends. I go on to a better place.”

When a new Alien joins the thread:
Threadhead #1: “A Stranger.”
Threadhead #2: “From the outside.”
All Threadheads: “Oooooooooooooh.”

And like the Aliens, those within the Thread know Nirvana is found within the mystic portals.

The ‘Claw’ turned 40 this week. And, I am taking this opportunity to salute him and thank him for providing great fun and entertainment. I am honored to be an Alien, er Threadhead, and I am glad the Thread Master chose me. “Bawk! Bawk!”
