Just say the bloody work for fuck's sake. AIBU to want to stab stab STAB people who use these twattish tweeisms?

Feck/fecking/fecker are Irish and perfecktly acceptable

Indeed. My Irish grandmother used the word all the time. I shall continue to do so too.

Feck/fecking/fecker are Irish and perfecktly acceptable (unless you are my mother).

EverlongLovesHerChristmasRobin Sun 09-Dec-12 23:11:57

Missed. Missed not mist! grin

EverlongLovesHerChristmasRobin Sun 09-Dec-12 23:10:54

<shakes fist at exit>

I'm very of you too my dear wink

InExitCelsisDeo Sun 09-Dec-12 22:58:27

But Everlong - I luffs you dearly.

<gavel>

EverlongLovesHerChristmasRobin Sun 09-Dec-12 22:57:19

I do hate the ' snorting tea thing ' sorry.

Does anybody really say gawjuss on here hmm

Hate gavel. And natch.

Not arsed about much else.

OnwardBound Sun 09-Dec-12 22:53:40

Hate 'I Luffs'

That is my number one.

Closely followed by 'Gawjuss'

There are a couple of posters who use these quite often.

I think it is meant ironically... or something...

They sound like schoolgirl queenbees.

InExitCelsisDeo Sun 09-Dec-12 22:39:47

Oh I don't know, it is just many of the things you hate seem to me to be the defining things of Mumsnet, on a day to day basis. Or maybe I just hang around on the twee threads.

[ftwee]

LoopsInHoops Sun 09-Dec-12 01:56:22

InExitCelsisDeo Sat 08-Dec-12 22:54:21 So, what is it you like about Mumsnet?

Most everything else. Is it just MN that uses these stupid tweeisms? Is it a defining feature of MN? Must one dislike the whole website if one dislikes this? hmm

getagoldtoof Sat 08-Dec-12 23:19:21

I fecking hate 'fook' or 'fooking'. Fuck off.

vladthedisorganised Sat 08-Dec-12 22:57:50

I must claim exemption for feck - it's an Irish thing. And 'blimey' is one of my 'pre-watershed things it's ok for DD to repeat incessantly' words, so that's OK too.

"I was just a bit sick in my mouth"; "a little bit of wee came out" - oh for fuck's (fack's?) sake, are you five?

Can't be doing with snogs, luffs or "I think I'm a little bit in love with <poster>". I suspect we're all over 13 here.

InExitCelsisDeo Sat 08-Dec-12 22:54:21

So, what is it you like about Mumsnet?

Oh you're not BU at all. I detest feck, blardy et al and especially the f***ing asterisks.

But I do like "vair" and "naice" as they are of the piss-taking variety, which I like vair much.

kennyp Sat 08-Dec-12 22:43:55

agree with all of the above. hate hate hate luffly, vair, hoikey (ffs, it's not remotely funny), jeff (wtf??), crusty bread/fresh rolls/market vegetables. (am going slightly off here but reallly blooooody irritating)

OkayHazel Sat 08-Dec-12 22:33:53

Language undergoes lexical shift over time.

YABU

ClippedPhoenix Sat 08-Dec-12 21:57:02

Dolphins now grin

I like monkey world on the telly.

ClippedPhoenix Sat 08-Dec-12 21:54:58

I don't snog random people on the internet, in fact i don't snog friends in real life due to me being cold grin

Lovey "snogs" are stupid and twee.

Don't even get me going on air kisses.

gail734 Sat 08-Dec-12 21:53:21

Yeah, OP should flip off. Motherflipper.

ClippedPhoenix Sat 08-Dec-12 21:51:27

Have to say I do "blimey" as an opening.

Are you me - well obviously not you twit grin

"I'm going to be a bit judgemental here" - no shit sherlock grin you "perfect" bastard.

AmIthatTinselly Sat 08-Dec-12 21:50:36
