The Fairy Tale of Mumsnet

(200 Posts)

Once upon a time there was a Dragon. She lived in a small kingdom at the edge of the world called Ford, which was quiet and little visited. Being young she decided it was time to set out towards some of the bigger, livelier kingdoms to seek her fortune...

Next line anyone?

She trudged wearily through the Land of Unanswered Messages, looking for a suitable place to spend her first night abroad.

Being a dragon, a "flaming" sounded like a good place to start so she booked into the Aibu Guest House

Where she gorged herself on biscuits, popcorn, Pom Bears and Gregg's sausage rolls all washed down with copious amounts of Fruit Shoots.

Before discovering the wine and cake and gorging in a feast of alcoholic goodness, where she then passed out and slipped into a coma a new parent can only dream of

is it supposed to be "happy ever after" fairytale or a "Pogues Newyork" fairytale?

I'm going for a pogues sleeping beauty...

She had heard legends from the kingdom. She Who Should Not Be Named was a tale she had heard at her mothers knee.

Oh, like all Fairy Tales, it can be whatever you want it to be. wink I had been thinking more like the original Grimm's type though.

...She awoke from the drunken haze with a start - what on earth was all the screaming and yammering from the next room? shock

It was an impromptu nobdie thread!

The nobdie thread had a quest for our young dragon...

fight through the Goady Army to the source of the Elixier of a Good Nights Sleep, The Honey Lake and secure it from the Trolls, in the name of MNHQ (who probably need it more)

Suddenly she arrived at a little bridge with a lush meadow on the other side, with a couple of goats grazing in it.

suddenly the young dragon was hit by a barrage of missiles. Looking closer she saw that they were buns flying through the air and realised she had wandered through the dark valley of AIBU

(oh mardy x=posts - postpone my AIBU until dragon has had a little play at the festival)

(all references to SWMNBN should include this classic )

MardyBra Tue 08-Jul-14 23:25:25

The buns were for the billy goats, I expect steppe

MardyBra Tue 08-Jul-14 23:27:08

The dragon was trip trapping over the bridge (avoiding the flying buns) when suddenly a hair hand appeared from underneath.

grabbing her ankles and threatening to drag her under the bridge.

MardyBra Tue 08-Jul-14 23:28:22

(Sorry I'm all over the place there).

Bifauxnen Tue 08-Jul-14 23:29:23

she chanted her holy incantation : though I walk throught he valley of Aibu i fear no flaming, no vipers nor deletion for i am NOT fucking unreasonable so get thee to the far side of fuck aa-aa-aaa-meeeen.

It was her mother-in-law!

And lo, the IPOATs materialised from the forest, bearing down in their crinolines and wafting scented pomanders.
