Hello. My name is Them.
Let me explain. Every night When Jack and I are bringing our train into the yard, we hear the yardmaster on the radio telling the yard conductor "Jack and Them are bringing in 80 loads..."
Every night I hear this. One night, Jack just looked at me and asked "Who the fuck is 'Them'?"
"I guess that's me... I'm 'Them'..."
I guess it's better than "Just call me Ishmael" but it does remind me of a really bad B-Grade horror movie with giant ants...
