    Ah the 3976th ½ T*K*O, just the place to be for a great story, and this is a great story. Anyway, I’ll get with it. All the thread killers were busy with their thread killings. Quite a tiring job.

    VIC ROMANO: If my increase in threads continues like this, I’d like an increase in pay!

    THAT ANNOUNCER: Look who’s complaining, you get paid more than we do!

    KERMIEBABY47: Yeah I get paid the least, and I just got promoted!

    VIBS: Well so did I!

    VIC ROMANO: Okay people; forgive me for bringing this up. Let’s get back to work!

    And so the thread killers continued their work when D’Snowth entered the hallway.

    VIBS: Congratulations Mrs. (my last name has been removed), it’s a squirrel! (Beat)

    ALL: VIBS!

    D’SNOWTH: Anyway, I stopped by to see KermieBaby…

    KERMIEBABY47: What did I do this time?

    D’SNOWTH: Nothing, you’re being discharged.

    KERMIEBABY47: That mean I’m being fired?

    D’SNOWTH: Of course not, you’ve gotten all of your points, so you don’t need to kill threads anymore, so you’re being discharged.

    KERMIEBABY47: That means I’m being fired!

    D’SNOWTH: No, basically it means…you’re being fired.

    KERMIEBABY47: Well I’m talking to MrsPepper about this!

    With that, KermieBaby stormed out of his office, and straight into the office of MrsPepper, who was busy watching online clips of “Air Farce”.

    KERMIEBABY47: MrsPepper, I need to talk to you!

    MRSPEPPER: Ah, KermieBaby47, I’m sure you’re excited about the news D’Snowth gave you…

    KERMIEBABY47: (Interrupting) Oh yeah, I’ve waited all my life to get a pink slip!

    MRSPEPPER: Oh no KermieBaby, you’re not being fired at all, D’Snowth, hand me his files…

    D’SNOWTH: (Pulls out file from stack) Here ya go!

    MRSPEPPER: Ah yes (Opens file) You see KermieBaby, a thread killer must work to earn 20 points for good, clean killings, 20 points for good conduct, 20 points for punctuality, 20 points for untartiness, and 20 points for any outside activities. Together, they all add up to 100 even points. 100 points gets you an honorable discharge, and you’ve gotten 115 points…

    D’SNOWTH: (Mumbling under his breath) He must’ve paid for someone to up HIS points.

    MRSPEPPER: So KermieBaby, you’re being discharge with all of your points, your work here is done, you can go back to a regular life at the forum.

    Upon hearing all of this, KermieBaby47 was overwhelmed.

    KERMIEBABY47: I…I don’t know what to say…or think.

    MRSPEPPER: It’s been a pleasure working with you Kerm!

    Commercial Break

    Later that afternoon, KermieBaby47 was cleaning out his office, with the help of Vibs.

    KERMIEBABY47: Ha, this door has closed, but another one has opened! No more sitting around all day killing threads, no more unflushed toilets, no more waiting in line for week-old food, and best of all, no more iced tea and milk everyday!

    VIBS: I’m so happy for you, pal!

    KERMIEBABY47: (Opens drawer) Ooh, D’Snowth’s comic books, I better return those before I forget! (Clears out drawer, and opens another) Oh look, here’s us at the company sleep-over several episodes ago.

    VIBS: Yeah, I remember D’Snowth was so embarrassed when we all found out about him and his Rocky.

    KERMIEBABY47: Yeah, D’Snowth’s a great guy, I’m gonna miss his daily PA announcements. (Closes another box) You wanna help me carry these out to my car?

    VIBS: Sure. (Picks up box) Y’know something KermieBaby, I’m really going to miss you.

    KERMIEBABY47: Well, I’m going to miss you too.

    VIBS: I just wanted you to know how much you’ve meant to me…you’re the best friend I’ve ever had here. You gave me such a warm welcome when I first joined, you always sat with me at lunch, and you were there when we got kidnapped by that hacker…

    KERMIEBABY47: Vibs, (Loads car) We’ve had some fun times together. (Reaches into pocket) Here.

    KermieBaby handed her a slip of paper with his e-mail written on it.

    KERMIEBABY47: Now we can stay in contact for all times.

    With that Vibs hugged him, and the two walked back into the building with their arms around each other. Later that night, everyone was in the cafeteria, throwing KermieBaby a farewell party.

    VIC ROMANO: Boy this is some great party.

    THAT ANNOUNCER: Yeah, but man, you need to try this cake, it’s delicious!

    VIC ROMANO: Boy it does look good…oh wait here comes Beau!

    Vic Romano and That Announcer quickly acted natural as Beauregard walked over to cut the cake.

    BEAUREGARD: Alrighty, now I’ll just…hey wait a minute, who cut the cake?!

    VIC ROMANO: (Playing dumb) What?! Look at that!

    THAT ANNOUNCER: (Also playing along) Oh my goodness, HEY, WHO CUT THIS CAKE?! (Walks off) Did you cut Gardy’s cake!

    Meanwhile, over at the punch table…

    MRSPEPPER: Boy, this is some party eh?

    D’SNOWTH: (Drunk) Well, I’m not gonna worry about a few…a floo…can-de-loose!

    MRSPEPPER: (Sadly thinking to herself) How can this kid get drunk on artificial flavors, and red dye #4?

    As the night went on, MrsPepper shoved KermieBaby on top of a table, while everyone else shouted for a speech.


    D’SNOWTH: (Still drunk) PEE! PEE! PEE! Oh….momma, I gotta pee!

    With that, D’Snowth ran off into the men’s room, while KermieBaby started his speech.

    KERMIEBABY47: Well…what can I say about a bunch of characters like you guys? You guys are all spunky, and full-of-life. You guys have made my days worth looking forward to whenever I come into work everyday. All of you had made a special impact in my life. MrsPepper, it’s been a pleasure working under your firm, yet wonderful commands. Vic Romano, you’ve been an awesome chief, and your guidance has made me an even better thread killer. That Announcer, I’m really gonna miss your fascination for iced tea. (Chuckles) Vibs, right back atcha; you too have been one of the best friends I’ve ever had. D’Snowth, well, who has a bad thing to say about the little nerd?

    D’SNOWTH: (Stumbles back into the cafeteria, still drunk.) That little nerd I left, boy it stank!

    KERMIEBABY47: And of course, who could forget Beauregard, that underappreciated, hardworking janitor…

    BEAUREGARD: “Custodian” please, and thank you for being the only one to acknowledge that fact.

    KERMIEBABY47: (Chuckles) Well, what more can I say about a great bunch of people like you? I’ll miss you all, and I’m glad I got to be a part of this….organization.

    KermieBaby then got a long standing ovation. He was really touched, and never realized how much he meant to them. As he got down from the table, MrsPepper then stood up on it, raising a punch glass.

    MRSPEPPER: And now, a toast…

    D’SNOWTH: (Drunk) Yeah! Here’s to crime! (Gulps punch)

    MRSPEPPER: (Disgusted) Anyway, as I was getting ready to say, here’s to KermieBaby47, may his work here at the 3976th ½, never be forgotten. Cheers!

    ALL: Cheers!

    D’SNOWTH: (Drunk, now holding Rocky) Deer’s! (Looks down)…HEY! MY SQUIRREL WENT OFF!

    Commercial break.

    Early the next morning, KermieBaby’s office was completely empty, except for the furniture, and the computer. He walked down the hallway, and into the lounge, where everyone was waiting to say goodbye.

    KERMIEBABY47: (Puts down suitcase) Well, it’s hard for me to say this, but I’ll miss you all, I’ll be thinking about you guys, and I hope you take good care of yourselves. I guess all that’s left to say is goodbye.

    Vic walked over to shake his hand.

    VIC ROMANO: Kermie, you’ve made me proud. It’ll be hard to replace you.

    KERMIEBABY47: Thanks man. (Picks up suitcase) Thread killers…

    ALL: …KermieBaby…

    KERMIEBABY47: Ado.

    With that, KermieBaby walked out of the building, and down the parking lot. Vibs started crying, while MrsPepper comforted her.

    MRSPEPPER: There there Vibs, this is a sad day for all of us, but just think of how happy he is now that he doesn’t have to kill threads anymore.

    VIBS: (Sniffles) Yeah… (Wipes nose) I’m really gonna miss him though. (Weeps)

    MRSPEPPER: Yeah, we ALL will, won’t we?

    The others sadly nodded their heads, as they heard KermieBaby slam his car door.

    MRSPEPPER: Well, there he goes, let’s all wave goodbye.

    KermieBaby pulled out of the parking lot, and started down the street, when he saw the thread killers in the glass door, all waving at him. He waved back, as he tried to keep his tears back. With that, the thread killers sadly walked away and back into their offices, while D’Snowth kept waving. KermieBaby then suddenly remember something, and quickly put on the emergency brakes, and ran across the road to the door. It was locked, but is still called out to D’Snowth…

    KERMIEBABY47: Hey man, I forgot to tell you, I left you comic books in your drawer, next to your book full of Elizabeth Montgomery pictures.

    D’SNOWTH: (Snaps) You know I have a book full of Elizabeth Montgomery pictures?

    KERMIEBABY47: Yeah, next to your book full of Kathy Greenwood pictures. Boy, am I gonna miss seeing your face as you look at their pictures.

    KermieBaby chuckled, while D’Snowth raised an eyebrow.

    KERMIEBABY47: Take care, kid!

    D’SNOWTH: You too.

    With said and done, KermieBaby ran back across the road, got back into his car, and drove off. D’Snowth noticed he had a banner roped to his trunk that said “I’ll see you all later, I promise”. D’Snowth wiped a tear from his face, and walked back into his office to make a PA announcement.

    D’SNOWTH: (Over intercom, breaking up) Attention, all personnel…(Sighs) I’m sure that we’ll all miss KermieBaby47, (Starts crying) so let’s all start a special thread in his honor at Muppet Central today…(Weeps) That is all.

    So the thread killers, red-eyed, and wet with tears did just that, as they all posted in MrsPepper’s new thread entitled: “A Tribute to Kermie”.

    VIC ROMANO: (Sniffling) This is the saddest day of my life.

    THE END​

    Cool. Good speeches. But I am extremely turned off by toilet humour, so I was making some unpleasant faces more than once.
    Love how you got drunk on non-alcoholic punch.

    Oh, man, that was funny!

    Was is THAT bad? I tried to make it as mild as I could. Oh well, out of the entire season, I believe this was the second worst episode.

    Well, I didn't enjoy those jokes. But I suppose it's not terrible. It's just my tastes. And I felt the need to share that for some reason. >< There were some really good moments, and some little things were awesome, like the Air Farce clips. But I'm not gonna lie or anything. I just didn't enjoy that aspect, is all. But you can't please everyone, eh? First you gotta please yourself. If you liked it, that's cool.

    Well, IMHO, although this story didn't take long to write, it was a hard one to write, because the whole time, I was trying NOT to go for comedy.
    But I can see that others aren't pleased with this one, because it's been here all day, and only two people read it (not counting me)

    Wow. The first season of T*K*O ends with little fanfare.

    Well, I for one...LOVED IT!!! :D I only check the New Posts and don't get home until around 4 pm Pacific, so I've just now seen it!!! Friggin hilarious, felt very honored to be part of the story.

    LOL! See? I really am a thread killer!!! Just the mention of my name turns people away!!

    Thanks for the story, what else have I been up to?

  9. D'Snowth

    D'Snowth Well-Known Member

    Well buddy, other than that, you've been in all the other episodes as a thread killer. Your character is basically one of the recurring guests (because you weren't in the original concept). You should check out MrsPepper's site to see all the other episodes.


    Note, the site isn't working right now because FreeWebs is down (I know because my FreeWebs site isn't working either), but if you can, you might search the forum for the other episodes.

    Who are they gonna put in Kermie's place? * bumps Snowth's shoulder* Think about it, why not hire the one and only ..........ME! :D
  11. D'Snowth

    D'Snowth Well-Known Member

    We've already got someone lined up for the replacement, but that won't be revealed until the new season during the holidays. If you want, I can work you into a future guest spot, because right now, EVERYONE wants to be in T*K*O, Muppet Central's hottest show!

    And id idn'tmind the tolet humour, but that just me...Mrs P is still my fav MopFam carcter. She's hilarious!

    Also this episode had a deeper meaning...*sniff*...which I'm sure you will all get if you've been around here lately...

    Oh, if I could be a guest star later on that'd be hilarious!:)
  15. MrsPepper

    MrsPepper Active Member

    Yeah Kermiebaby, you've been to a sleepover, been hacked and kidnapped, and a few other things, I'm sure. ^_^
    Beau, you like me NOW. Be glad you're not technically a union member. ;)

    It's true eh? It kind of IS the hottest show. You should be totally proud, eh, D'Snowth?

    Hey, D'Snowth? I'm sorry. I've had a difficult time of things this week, and unfortunately it's coming through in my posts. I shouldn't have been quick to judge like that.
    I thought it was a really touching way to end the season. And you deserve giant hugs for all the work you've been doing on the series. It's hard for me to think of how much work you really do put into it. **huggles**
  16. D'Snowth

    D'Snowth Well-Known Member

    It's okay MrsPepper, like I said, this was a hard episode to write because I was trying NOT to go for comedy in this ep. I still don't care for it as much as other episodes though. You deserve the spotlight too, because you're the one who came up with the entire concept of T*K*O, I just delivered it in a series. But I too go through times like these, so I know how you feel, and I hope things turn out better for you. :)
  17. MrsPepper

    MrsPepper Active Member

    Thank you. It's good to know I'm not the only one. :)

    And, if we're throwing credits around, Vic came up with the phrase Thread Killas, and I ran with it.

    Episode 13 is up on the site, and I'm gonna tweak a few things, maybe. Forum is gone, that didn't work. ^^;
    But we need to party: We had a succesful first season, everyone wants to guest star on our show, the scripts both by you and TA have been awesome. I say, break out the desserts, guys, this is a time to celebrate! (Even KermieBaby liked it, and he pretty much got written off!) **dances**
  18. D'Snowth

    D'Snowth Well-Known Member

    I still love the T*K*O site. BTW, are you still interested in the link banners?
  19. MrsPepper

    MrsPepper Active Member

    Oh, RIGHT! Shoot. Forgot! >< Right now I am going to say no, as the links page is pretty streamlined and I like it that way. but if you have a small button I can put it on the navbar, and see how that looks... :concern:
  20. MrsPepper

    MrsPepper Active Member

    Wait, scratch that. I'm moving the copyright thing to the navbar. >< I'll fiddle around with your banner and see what I can do. Okay?
    Also, when had you said the second seaqson is planned to start? I don't need an exact date if you don't have one, a general timeframe will do.
