The Greatest Thread Ever.

I need your help, as I want to make this The Greatest Thread Ever. Understand, if YOU help make it happen, YOU will forever be a part of The Greatest Thread Ever.

I believe The Greatest Thread Ever will make you laugh, cry, think, love, hate.
It will do so many other things. It will be powerful. It will have humility.
I thank you all in advance.


No no, thank you for making this happen.

How’s it working so far?

Now that I have I posted, it is done. Mods, feel free to close this thread.

Will there be free pickles for participants?

I don’t understand the pickles sold in movie theatres that I saw in the US. Pickles are not movie food to me! Popcorn is! Ice cream is!But not pickles.

Isn’t it a paradox to declare yourself the best “ever”? Isn’t “ever” a condition only accurately decided in retrospect?

So far, it is not going well. I believe I have bitten off more than I can chew.
By the way, If there were pickles, I’d hope they’d be Klaussens. But I don’t think there will be any pickles at all. Gosh, I’m actually crying in shame.

Yes, change the title to The Greatest Thread So Far.

Can we get this moved to the Pit? It needs some curse words and at least one slam from the Ban Hammer.

Where’s Cecil?

You got a problem with pickles?

Is that some Australian thing?

Hey, at my local theater you can get baba ganoush.

With a pickle!


But ‘The Greatest Thread Ever’ would need that very title. If there are greater threads, then this is not The Greatest Thread Ever. It is merely a Pretender to the Throne.
It may indeed be The Greatest Thread So Far, and many others will be greater.
But I’m raising this child with extremely high expectations.

You know, Carl Jr.'s Six-Dollar Burger comes with those bread and butter (or sweet?) pickles, instead of dill. I find it refreshing and delightful, and always order extra pickles.

Great idea. The Greatest Thread Ever will be beautiful, but it must have its darknesses, also.

I think the thread would be better if you gave out free drinks instead of pickles.

Can you ride one of those electric bulls?


It’s official. The Greatest Thread Ever will forever be AKA The Pickle Thread.
How you folks knew that I’m CRAZY for great pickles, I’ll never know. And I’m not kidding.

I’m glad–nay, proud–to say that I’ve posted in the Greatest Thread Ever. To paraphrase the Bard:

But we in it shall be remembered
We few, we happy few, we band of Dopers
For the Doper today that posts along with me
Shall be my brother or sister, be they ne’er so vile,
This day shall gentle their condition.
And Dopers who are now a-lurking
Shall think themselves accursed they did not post
And hold their status cheap whilst any speaks
Who posted with us in the Greatest Thread Ever.

Adapted from Shakespeare’s King Henry the Fifth, IV iii 59-67.

No, this is not The Greatest Thread Ever. This a thread about The Greatest Thread Ever. The actual Greatest Thread Ever would have an open bar and buffet; five seperate soundstages; helicopters; celebrity guest appearances; a private screening room; monkeys; car chases; gratuitous sex scenes; pool and sauna privileges; explosions; an ocean view; cheerleaders; genuine leather upholstery; and fire trucks.
