The Legend of "Hey Guys" By Ron Hailes

Back on December 7 2012 @ 10.57 am two words were posted on the Melbourne Comedy Rooms hub Facebook page by Nick Mason who may or may not be a real person or may be several people. These two words "Hey Guys" were the start of the longest Facebook thread I have ever seen reaching over 2000 posts a few days ago. So what is it about and what does it mean, honestly I have no idea. The contributors are a mixture of real people and fake people, some quite well known comedians and lots of unknown ones like me. The content ranges from funny to weird, although there been a few bust ups, it generally hasn't got to nasty. Someone calling himself Mike Brown often tells me to shut up but I can handle that because at least I am a real person. Venues are mentioned, Comedy @spleen gets a big run as does @@@@@, invented habits are talked about, even bus trips to the Westgate Bridge, as I said no idea! There are lots of lurkers just hanging around the Hey Guys thread who don't post, others drop in and out to see where its heading, which is nowhere. So this is the "Hey Guys" legend, what is it really about, well I think its just people expressing themselves, sometimes in a weird way but it doesn't matter after all its just "Hey Guys" nothing more than "Hey Guys" There have even been new "Hey Guys "Threads but nothing has the power of the original ...."Hey Guys" I don't know when it will end but "Hey Guys" I will keep you posted
