Would the Pirate sex one be allowed?
grin

I still chortle at the 'tickers' thread, but I can't find it to link to. Has it been deleted because it was in 'chat' or am I just being a dimbo?

Nbg Tue 25-Sep-07 09:35:17

Oh and Gingerbears Patent leather knicker thread!

Pirate sex and stupidity are already in by virtue of featuring in MP's talk round up which gives a thread auto qualification.

We're going to clear out the other threads in this topic that have been started, so it's easier to see what's what.
Cheers,
MNHQ

although its abit cringeworthy now( at least I think so, being the one who had a replacement) the Strawberry thread was lovely.

I believe it was one of the 1st threads lost toys threads to have aresult.

The Strawberry one is hilarious for all the wrong reasons. The woman started out thinking MNers were unbelievably lovely, and then by the end she plainly thought she had landed in the middle of the biggest pile of soft-toy obsessives on the planet, and was desperately trying to get people to shut up and leave her alone. Or that was my reading of it, anyway. grin

I want to nominate the thread where Zebra(?) said she puts her kids to bed in their school clothes to save time in the morning. I can't find it though. I can't find much these days..

The clone one, the zombie plan and the Jesus at breakfast I was amazed nevertheless one.

Hi Justine: Does a thread qualify as an Mnet classic because it's amusing or are there other potential qualification criteria e.g. particularly poignant, an unusually eloquent discussion? Something made me re-read a thread I started years ago about loving one DC but being 'in love' with another and the contributions to that thread were so well written and thoughtful that for me it was a classic thread in a different kind of way (none of them mine as I was the OP). In a similar vein there was the 'muffinchops' thread, again from years ago, when dozens of women carefully and thoughtfully explored how or even if two full-on professional careers and parent-hood are compatible. Then's there's Custardo's thread about how to deal with teenagers - definitely a classic in its own right.

The one that was entitled something like "you know you're not an earth mother" - that was one of the funniest threads ever! I've searched but I can't find itsad

tortoiseSHELL Tue 25-Sep-07 10:09:18

Well I would like to nominate this one as one of the funniest typos ever

tortoiseSHELL Tue 25-Sep-07 10:10:55

And also, the original brians

Flamesparrow Tue 25-Sep-07 10:11:09

Is the hamster stew one in there?? I looooooooved that one.

The depression story too - not a funny classic, but one that should always be around.

Flamesparrow Tue 25-Sep-07 10:12:48

Oooh oooh oooh - the one with the poor woman trying to link to a dress grin

Turquoise Tue 25-Sep-07 10:13:48

Just tried to find the bluebell woods man and it's gone, boo!

Also loved the windup ones - Jane the cleaner and the photo one with Kate and the girls.
