I have joined this site solely to remind all you thoughtless, forgetful, selfish ba#@ards that Madeleine McCann is missing!!!!!!!! I cannot understand how anyone can sit with their arms around their own children, in the comfort of a cinema whilst feeding their children popcorn and Coke that there are lots of mothers in this world who cannot do this. Their children have been taken from them and I wonder if any of you had the money or the resources available to them, I wonder if you would have campaigned this long or this hard for their daughters return. I wish the McCanns every success and only wish I could physically find their daughter for them. I am taking my 6 kids to see Shrek tomorrow and I hope my cinema is still showing the Madeleine film. I hope the publicity generated stays in your faces for a long time to come. Tell me, if she passed in front of you down at the shops or at the park could any of you be bothered to actually tell someone. Or are you all just to happy in the knowledge that its not one of your children. There but for the grace of God............

It's not about bothering, and when you climb down from the high horse you currently ride, you will see that.

Please, before you start mouthing off, have the decency to read the thread in its entirety, and not just the very limited reflection in the press.

And then grow up.

6 kids at the cinema, blimey.

How dare the op spend all that money on her children when she could have donated it to help find Madeleine McCann??!! I am disgusted that she would consider her own children before Madeleine!!!!

/sarcasm

thank you all for taking the p@*s out of this thread, it's saved me the trouble. I do like the coke gag too...

"I have joined this site solely to remind all you thoughtless, forgetful, selfish ba#@ards that Madeleine McCann is missing"

YES WE KNOW!

Why don't you try searching her name here & see how much time we have given to Madeleine McCann before you go shouting your mouth off!

And that is all I will say on the matter, as I refuse to have a battle with an unarmed person! How dare you talk to us like that when you haven't even bothered (by your own admission) to do your homework...go away!

TroyMcClure Tue 03-Jul-07 16:06:33

when IS the BOden sale starting?

Bigmamie - I have to say my initial reaction waa the same as yours as I have no problem with the ad, however I told my daughter about Maddy (bit of a mistake as I now have to keep telling her that no nasty operson will come and take her away).

There are lots of parents who haven't told their children so as not to scare them. From what I can gather there was no warning that this ad was going to be shown and it may well have frightened many young children.

Just because someone objects to an ad in a cinema does not mean that they would ignore Maddy if they saw her - the two issues are completely separate and if you thought about it properly for just one minute you would see how stupid you were being.

Of course if anyones child were taken from them they would move heaven and earth to find them - what an idiotic thing to say!

I don;t think anyone would have objected had the ad been shown at a film aged at an older age group, but it was shown before Shrek which many young children would have seen.

"I cannot understand how anyone can sit with their arms around their own children, in the comfort of a cinema whilst feeding their children popcorn and Coke that there are lots of mothers in this world who cannot do this."




So, we have to sit in the house, afraid to venture out, just incase we offend anyone else.... Okkk.


And.. <ahem> no coke for us please.

MrsLovejoy Tue 03-Jul-07 16:11:34

oh for christ's sake get a grip woman. Actually it royally pisses me off that you have the nerve to wade in here guns blazing without doing the posters on here the courtesy of actually reading the thread you're objecting so hysterically to. If you had you'd realise that the parents on here are neither selfish nor thoughtless.

Your post is childish, arrogant and insulting and you should be ashamed of yourself.

How can anyone afford to take 6 kids to cinema and buy them all popcorn and coke?

BTW, just so you know, cinema popcorn is full of trans-fats and salt.

And coke?

Are you for real?

Why not make them a spritzer from sparkling water and pomegranate juice?

sandcastles Tue 03-Jul-07 16:13:14
