  • The history of the "official thong"

    I've seen a lot of references lately to my sig and thought maybe it was time to explain to some of the newcomers how this sig came to be. (no, believe it or not, I didn't buy this for my own personal wardrobe)


    a little background info is in order here:

    As few of you probably know, we have t-shirts available at cafepress:

    http://www.cafepress.com/buy/bt3cent...t_/fpt_/c_360/


    When Sam originally set up the cafepress site, he included a thong in the lineup as a joke. This item brought about quite a few good laughs on the forums and in the chat for several months.

    Then in November of 2004, I had the privelidge and honor to host BT3C's Big Kahoona (aka Sam Conder) at my residence for a weekend so we could attend the Woodworking show in Philly PA with a few other members. I felt it to be such a great honor to finally meet the man behind BT3C that I needed to present him with a "gift" to remember his trip. Being the sarcastic individual that I am, what better gift than the "official thong" that was available on the site????

    After the trip, it was decided to retire the thong from the website so that there would be only one in existance. This was to become the 'traveling thong' to be passed from member to member as they got to meet each other. Sam had presented the thong to Xamu when they met at the Chicago show a few years ago, it's never been seen again.


    So there you have it folks, THAT is how it all came to be.

    I'm a warped individual with a twisted sense of humor, BUT ....

    I DO NOT WEAR THONGS!!!
    If it ain't broke.. don't fix it!!!... but you can always 'hop it up'

    The part Thom left out was that he was wearing it when he picked me up at the airport.

                Thongs for the explanation, Thom.

                Re' the comfort factor in wearing the thong, I have just 2 words: butt floss. I don't know from experience--I spent much of my formative years pulling underwear out of my crack, why would I want to wear something that by design has the opposite effect?

                            Had to set the coffee cup down on this one. That is a funny story. Perhaps the next 2 X 6 Challange should be design a Thong using wood, naw the splinters would hurt.

                              I didn't want him to ven know I was "Sam Conder". I hoped he didn't notice me...
