honestly, why would a grown adult wear a jumper with Eeyore on it

Ooh I have never seen this thread before.

I saw a purple Suzuki Vitara a couple of months ago in Cheltenham, it had a picture of Eeyore on the spare wheel coevr thingie, and the woman's name *"Sheila" amblazoned in bright pink joined up handwriting font on the back windscreen.

I chortled and thought 'I must tell mumsnet' but forgot.

I LOVE the howling wolf fleeces. Do you remember the very first Apprentice - Saira and the posh one had to select some tat merchandise for a telly shopping channel - they saw one of those wolf fleeces and completely roared with laughter at the sight of it, it was so funny to watch.

My friend is obsessed with bagpuss, and has computer accessories (mouse, laptop bag etc) covered in Bagpuss motifs. It is deeply odd.

I have, for some years now, been trying to lose dp's precious "Mickey in Moscow" T-shirt which he was given after (even more shamefully) attending some Morris Dancing bash in Russia. The only saving grace is that the lettering is all in Cyrillic script but the poxy mouse still looms large on the front.

It's not as if dp has any time, whatsoever, for the Dismal Corporation or their relentless colonisation of the planet. But he does love this particular garment.

But yes, as a rule, adults who want to brand themselves by sporting Eyeores, Tiggers and Poohs all over their clothes need help. Or to be given as wide a berth as possible.

this thread has returned
it is one of my favourites
for the last couple of years I have felt a bit of a buzz whenever I spot a disney wearing adult and feel I have come to understand them a little more.

On holiday last year ds1 went and blew his holiday money on a t shirt with a huge tiger face on it..oh the shame

My sister asked for warm pyjamas for Christmas a few years ago. It was pretty much impossible to find some without a WTP/Little Miss Naughty/some stupid slogan emblazoned across them. Some even came with a little teddy bear in the pocket! For grown women, FFS!

Naffer than a naff thing.

Our (male) headteacher is often seen in school sporting a fleece with a large embroidered Mickey Mouse on the back biscuit - the younger ones think it's great but the Year 6's are known to snurk from time to time.

We'll see whether the cold weather makes him bring out his wolf fleece.

Not Disney but I drove all the way home last night with that fucking crazy frog grinning out at me from the rear window of the car in front. Great big thing sat on the back shelf. It was the only time I have ever contemplated deliberately driving into the back of a car.

I agree with Jellybeans. Live and let live!

I saw a grown woman wearing Hello Kitty earmuffs yesterday. Her whole car was full to bursting with Hello Kitty cuddly toys and stuff hanging off the rear view mirror.

I cut her up quite badly at a roundabout. She totally deserved it.

Re the howling wolf fleece:

A woman I have never seen before wore a blue fleece with appliquéd Alsatians on the back to my grandmother's funeral.

Appliquéd Alsatians aside... A fleece! To a funeral! It wasn't even black.

I'm sitting here reading this thread in my Hello Kitty PJ bottoms grin I have a bit of a thing for HK. And I also love Owls. I'm not a saddo, honest!

jellybeans Wed 02-Dec-09 09:54:33

I see alot of older people with owl or bird motives on fleece tops, the sort you can buy in posh garden centres. I think it is maybe abit odd but I like oddballs. I wouldn't wear it, prefer plain stuff and no labels but it's not really any worse than head to toe in Bench etc and if they like it why not?

LOL - "nafftastic bearfuck"

I am going to cover myself in honey and proposition DP with that exact phrase when he gets home this evening...

Stayingsunnygirl Wed 02-Dec-09 09:34:43

Tell us what you saw, pleeeeease Carmen. grin

nickschick Wed 02-Dec-09 09:07:03

OMG.. never... NEVER google 'slutty tinkerbell' images to accrue evidence

nickschick Wed 02-Dec-09 08:07:05

Tinkerbell is so not slutty - is she?

I have a tinky t shirt and pjs ......blush.

Hey nothing is as bad as the howling wolf fleece jacket here

I must say though i only wear those things in the house and not outside and certainly not to work.

mamasmissionimpossible Tue 01-Dec-09 22:05:57

My mother has a whole sofa dedicated to all her cuddly friends, v v worrying. They are going straight to the charity shop, if I am ever 'lucky' enough to inherit them.

YABVVVVVVVU I love my fleecy Micky jacket from Disney store its so warm. Whatever happened to your sense of fun OP, just because you are an adult do you have to be miserable and loose your inner child, my goodness me what a grump. Bring it on, I have an Eyore jumper from Disney store with my name on it grin

YANBU. It is concerning to say the very least! I hate to see cars full of all the fluffy characters...peering out the back seat...hanging off the mirror. Lordy.

oops wear = year

(a year so bad, I am still unable to type)

Katiekitty Tue 01-Dec-09 21:12:46

I once worked in a very small office, for a wear, with a woman of 35, who was so deeply, deeply obsessed with Winnie the Pooh, that, she could only call him, in deeply revered tones:

Wwwinnieee da pooooooh (upwards incline on the end of -oooohhh if you don't mind)

(deep shudder)

I don't have any Disney clothing but I do have a couple of t-shirts with the comics version of the Joker from Batman on. Homicidal psychopathic clowns are much cooler than grumpy donkeys and honey-obsessed bears...
