How long until the bride realises it's about her? When are journalists going to research for their own, original news?!

VioletVaccine Wed 11-May-16 22:48:14

I've ceased to be interested until the bride comes forward!

Can you guess what 81% thought the guest should have done with the cheque?

SisterMoonshine Wed 11-May-16 22:52:11

Is the 2nd thread full already?

FoxSticks Wed 11-May-16 22:53:19

It was discussed on LBC today too.

Vardyparty Wed 11-May-16 22:54:40

There are already a few threads on this.

Least this isnt about dipping dicks in cups I suppose like the last big mumsnet story

I loved the green cup story. Kept me amused for AGES!

It was on BBC 5Live this afternoon too - I heard it on the way to the school run.

It's a good cautionary tale though - beware - your thread could go viral.

I saw it on yahoo and I know it's been in the cunting paper of cuntflaps.

My life is in no way exciting or news worthy - but this kind of thing does make me worry about posting in the future.

notapizzaeater Wed 11-May-16 23:19:56

Let's hope the bride sent the email to a few people

BatteryOperatedBoyfriend Wed 11-May-16 23:24:14

It means that people either don't post , or people make up the most random story in the hope of it getting in the papers!

PurpleRainDiamondsandPearls Wed 11-May-16 23:25:25

I wonder that thread is responsible for the influx of goady twats we've had of late?

kayessbee Wed 11-May-16 23:25:27

On Chris Evans Radio 2 earlier today too.....

CodyKing Wed 11-May-16 23:28:02

I've just voted "cancel the cheque!"

The article is very badly written. Shoddy sloppy 'journalism'.

It was also in the Guardian, not just the DM. As bloody bad as each other.

ilovesooty Wed 11-May-16 23:46:21

I read the beginning of it and didn't feel interested enough to post. I'm astonished it's gone viral really.

Mind you I didn't think pens beaker was particularly funny.

Penis beaker of course.
