Is there a sentence that begins with “them”?

An online retail store is asking its customers to construct a sentence beginning with them in order to win a voucher. I just can’t believe there’s any such sentence, at least I don’t know of any!

I’ve had enough laughs with friends coming up with Americanisms that fit, so that’s not what I’m looking for.

I’m just very curious, is such a sentence grammatically possible or is this store just being mischievous?
