Tim Thomas was lampooned on Wikipedia, the most reliable, trusted reference source on the Interwebs.
Meanwhile, for about 14 hours on Tuesday, the all-authoritative knowledge source of the people -- Wikipedia -- was having some fun at the Vezina-winning netminder’s expense. On Tuesday morning, a merry prankster edited Thomas’ entry to better suit his convictions.
“Position: Goaltender and Protector of our Rights and Civil Liberties,” his description read. “Catches: Left, which is why he rarely uses his catching glove. He refuses to go left out of principle.”
See what they did there? They used his handedness to lampoon his defiant political beliefs. Wordplay. That’s what makes it a joke. In case you missed it.
At this point, Thomas might be realizing it’s probably best to keep quiet about some of his beliefs. But I disagree. Just take cues from your peers about how to do it in a likable manner.
