Thing I Read on Mumsnet That Still Make Me Laugh Even Years Later

(460 Posts)
VivianDarkbloom Tue 01-Nov-11 12:57:52

Apologies if I get any of the details wrong...

The MNer who broke her wrist trying to teach a puppy how to jump a fence, and then broke the other one the next week showing somebody how she'd broken the first one.

The MNer who quite randomly introduced herself at a conference as "Angela Hernandez" when the real Angela Hernandez was in the room.

The legal MNer who was about to stand up in court when their opponent tried to sabotage them by passing them a note saying "the second witness lost his left buttock in a lawnmower accident".


Most of these happened to that "friend" I KNOW you all have...

notnowbernard Tue 01-Nov-11 13:01:54

The MNer whose toddler DS pointed at a rather un-tended ladygarden in the communal swimming pool changing room and said "uh-oh!"

I still chuckle at this and it seems like aeons ago. I don't even know who posted it grin

mycatsaysach Tue 01-Nov-11 13:02:41

100 rolls grin

TanteRose Tue 01-Nov-11 13:03:54

"tiny wanker"...I still sometimes remember that and giggle to myself grin

Pippinintherain Tue 01-Nov-11 13:05:03

The poster who as a policewoman was visiting a murder scene for forensics and fell over the dead body grin

iklboo Tue 01-Nov-11 13:06:02

Woofa's testicle removal - build up and post op (that dog was fecking hilarious).

MrsYamada Tue 01-Nov-11 13:07:07

It's got to be Second Coming taking her bikini bottoms off by the pool.

'Fuck shock your minge.'


ShowOfHands Tue 01-Nov-11 13:07:55

The grammer police. That whole invasion in fact.

OpheliaBumps Tue 01-Nov-11 13:08:02

The MNer who removed her tankini bottoms at the side of the pool, the one with the tiny wanker DC, and the utter arse of a woman who gave her toddler a cutted up pear.

In fact I'm snorting now just typing these!

kickingking Tue 01-Nov-11 13:08:06

The garlic shit post. Even if it wasn't true (think there was some doubt about the story) it's still funny.

bran Tue 01-Nov-11 13:08:19

Message withdrawn at poster's request.

Putrifyno Tue 01-Nov-11 13:08:27

"Is that you, UCM" always makes me titter.

WitchesAreComing Tue 01-Nov-11 13:09:26

The lady who mistakenly called her son a "tiny wanker" instead of a "whiny tinker". In a packed doctor's waiting room.

Whenever I'm peeling carrots I think of Reality's Mum because apparently she is unable to understand that Chantenay carrots don't need peeling and nags her about it. For some reason it makes me giggle.

chinam Tue 01-Nov-11 13:10:30

The poor mum whose child told her she was lovely but would look even better if she had straight hair and a different face.

WitchesAreComing Tue 01-Nov-11 13:10:30

Oh - and someone grabbing the wrong hand thinking it was their DD and finding themselves encouraging a dwarf out of a toy shop.

Thumbwitch Tue 01-Nov-11 13:11:44

yes to all of the above but the one that I still remember most was the first thing I saw about MN, an article in the Guardian c. 2004 - it listed some of the things that mumsnetters recommended one didn't do with one's toddler - and I believe it may have been monkeytrousers (might not though) who wrote something about it being ok to draw a moustache on your sleeping baby's face, but probably best not to do it in indelible ink the day before the HV arrived! I was honestly ROFL at that! grin

kickingking Tue 01-Nov-11 13:13:05

WitchesAreComing - no! That can't have happened! It just can't - you'd have to kill yourself!

WitchesAreComing Tue 01-Nov-11 13:18:14

The tiny wanker one would have been even funnier if someone had actually started a thread saying, "AIBU to think that the dreadful woman in the doctor's waiting room should be shot?" grin

GetOrfMo1Land Tue 01-Nov-11 13:20:52

Is that you, UCM wss brilliant.

grin at Angela Hernandez.

Revies on Trip Advisor, I laughed at loud at 'in the wooky'

'shopping for carbs with Claire'

Something which BupcakesandCunting said about Myleene Klass which was deleted.

When the Pram Huns invaded the rest of the board (this was when for sale and classified were in active convos, the people who sold stuff on MN were SO DIFFERENT from the rest of the board).

TanteRose Tue 01-Nov-11 13:23:20

any one remember when Tech changed the smilies for a couple of hours shock

it was NOT a laughing matter angry they were GRIM!

Thumbwitch Tue 01-Nov-11 13:23:30

Sorry, not monkeytrousers, monkey magic:
"It doesn't make you a bad parent if you draw a moustache on the baby for a laugh, but it's best not to do it with indelible marker the day before an appointment with the health visitor."

Still makes me laugh now! grin

TeWihara Tue 01-Nov-11 13:24:05

The shitting elf was one of the first threads I read grin

And the bobble plate disaster.

There was also a great PFB thread where someone admitted to putting no more tears shampoo in their eye to check it really didn't sting! And another MNer who gave her parents 18 typed pages of instructions on looking after their DC...

ContraryMartha Tue 01-Nov-11 13:24:35

The mooncup debates make me laugh, especially the poster who said she came out from her work bathroom looking like she had slaughtered a chicken.

BupcakesandHaunting Tue 01-Nov-11 13:25:38

What GetOrf said about Kelly Osbourne's jaw being excavated by a Time Team in the future and they will think it is a prehistoric ploughing tool. Actually cried at that.

Revies on Trip Advisor, especially Dillie the prostitute/ShirleyKnot's "fucking spanish speaking spanish eating their spanish food in spain"

Pouffe of Poo

Angela Hernandez

Thumbwitch Tue 01-Nov-11 13:27:07

Ooo, I don't remember that Tante - what were they like?

BoffinMum Tue 01-Nov-11 13:27:29


<wets self>


Becaroooo Tue 01-Nov-11 13:28:45

cutted up pear woman
<<wipes tears of mirth from eyes>>

GetOrfMo1Land Tue 01-Nov-11 13:28:54

haha at 'fucking spanish food eating spanish spain bastards in spain' grin I wasn't even on that thread, I read it on my phone late at night and woke DP up with laughing.

grin at kelly Osborne. They fucking deleted that thread buppy, it has kelly Osbourne, your comment about Myleene and the Khao San road and other nasty comments. Why did they delete it <wrings hands>

neverever Tue 01-Nov-11 13:29:52

the thread about the mum in aibu who was annoyed that the childminders hiad dared to give her dc m&s pasta and had not handmade the pasta.

TanteRose Tue 01-Nov-11 13:30:11

Thumb, they were...scary...shock sort of...evil-looking.

very odd...twas about 3 years ago?

GetOrfMo1Land Tue 01-Nov-11 13:30:52

The thread where I said that I had immaced my fanjo, and then someone came on and said 'well it didn't harm my 4 month old baby's head when it got immaced', she then fucked off for 24 hours whilst the rest of the thread went 'whaaaaaaaaat'.

(She came back in the end, she dropped immac on the baby by mustake, it wasn't purposefully done)

oh yes. "your minge, your minge" has me laughing so hard it hurts.

and the, erm. babies and rockets. grin

oh, and the woman being stitched up whose 'minmin' attacked the doctor and pinned them to the wall grin

LadyClariceCannockMonty Tue 01-Nov-11 13:32:16

I second the detective inspector tripping over the dead body. grin
Also on the work thread, the woman who had food poisoning at a conference and kept sneaking off stage to puke in a bin hidden from view, forgetting that she had a mike on. And then ended her stint on the stage by sitting down too hard on a wheelie chair and cannoning off the back of the stage shouting 'Fuck!' <dying of laughter all over again>

And the celeb crushes thread where someone mused: 'Benedict Cumberbatch ... For a thin man, he's exceptionally hot. And I bet he'd do the nasty like a rocket.' Something about the vocab and punctuation just made/still makes me howl with laughter.

GetOrfMo1Land Tue 01-Nov-11 13:32:38

Tuna Pasta Bake gate.

And one of my favoutite threads of all time - Beesimo with the gran gran and all the horses, everyone was having a row and then suddenly loads of people started quoting 90s lyrics in random places, you would have 'shut up you racist bitch' and the next post would be NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO THERES NO LIMITS TECHNO TECHNO TECHNO TECHNO

That was deleted as well.

StillSquiffy Tue 01-Nov-11 13:32:46

the tale of LisaLisa's pants had me crying with laughter as the drama unfolded.

Putrifyno Tue 01-Nov-11 13:32:51

Oh the tripadvisor one was hysterical! I want to GO to the Wooky....

BlameItOnTheBogey Tue 01-Nov-11 13:33:13

Another vote for the MNer who took her bikini bottoms off beside the pool. Read it out loud to DH but couldn't even get the words out because I was crying with laughter.

JenaiMarrHePlaysGuitar Tue 01-Nov-11 13:33:59

I just love tiny wanker grin

The other day I spent a lovely hour in the bath revisiting revies and chortling like a loon. Goodness knows what the neighbours thought was going on (terraced house - thinnish walls).

I need to know about cutted up pears and toddlers, please Ophelia

Sidge Tue 01-Nov-11 13:34:32

The hamster casserole one was hilarious. Even though it was made up it was bloody funny.

And pirate sex.

And cube of poo.

Putrifyno Tue 01-Nov-11 13:34:55

and the Oxo Tower.....grin

LeQueen Tue 01-Nov-11 13:35:34

I loved that thread 'Do you have twigs and pebbley shit' ...stuff of legend smile

I always wish I'd printed it off and had it bound into a slim volume that I could peruse whenever I was feeling a bit blue...

Putrifyno Tue 01-Nov-11 13:35:53

The hedgehog cam one had me in tears.

Fuzzywood Tue 01-Nov-11 13:38:49

The one where whoever it was ran topless past the plumber who was sitting in her lounge with her DH shouting something about hob nobs thinking only her DH was there. Who was that?
The toddler AIBU with the cutter up pear was also fab.

LeQueen Tue 01-Nov-11 13:40:59

And, that thread about 'Weird Things Your In-Laws Do' Remember one MN-etter posting how her MIL had a key to the MN-etter's house, and one day the MN-etter was pulling onto her own drive and spotted MIL letting herself into her house (perfectly normal, the visit was expected) but the MIL actually shut the door in the MN-etter's face, reducing her to having to knock politely on her own front door shock

Doesn't sound remotely funny now, but it really tickled me at the time smile

Thumbwitch Tue 01-Nov-11 13:42:54

Ah the OXO tower one - masterful!

I presume the cutted up pear one is the recent one that made it into Classics? Where the toddler was asking AIBU? this one

coldcomfortHeart Tue 01-Nov-11 13:43:03

Cutted up pear one is in Classics- title is something like 'if my 3 year old had access to AIBU' or somethhing like that

classic indeed

coldcomfortHeart Tue 01-Nov-11 13:43:26


LeQueen Tue 01-Nov-11 13:43:33

Ohhh, and any and all threads pertaining to Attachment Parenting...infact I got a bit fixated by their utterly crazed lunancy, and couldn't stop myself attemtping to be the voice of sanity and logic...still recall the AP Parent who wouldn't make their child wear a seat-belt on an airplane shock

Had to wean myself off them in the end hmm

Thumbwitch Tue 01-Nov-11 13:44:41

Tante - I must have missed those - phew!

JenaiMarrHePlaysGuitar Tue 01-Nov-11 13:45:59

Shall peruse shortly, thank you.

VivianDarkbloom Tue 01-Nov-11 13:46:01

Oh, I'd forgotten the MNer who came running into the kitchen topless, tarzan-wailing and beating her chest, to find her DH sitting at the table with the plumber... <wipes tear>

Can anyone link to the original thread about the bikini bottoms? I only know of it through legend.

(P.S. I accidentally made a duplicate of this thread as I thought this one hadn't gone through, and have been sadly refreshing the page wondering why nobody wanted to reminisce with me. So glad to find you all here grin )

TanteRose Tue 01-Nov-11 13:46:22

Thumb, actually, I sometimes wonder if I imagined it coz no-one ever knows what I'm talking about...hmmconfused

SucksToBeMe Tue 01-Nov-11 13:49:24

fuzzywood you beat me to it!! I STILL laugh when I think of that poor woman running through the kitchen beating her naked chest!!!! <snorts>


reelingintheyears Tue 01-Nov-11 13:49:34

'A dog shat on my picnic'

WitchesAreComing Tue 01-Nov-11 13:50:17

The MNer's child who made a large clay cock the day before the HV was due to visit and wanted it proudly displayed.

I was howling before I even read the suggestion that perhaps it might be better hidden in the child's bedroom.

exoticfruits Tue 01-Nov-11 13:50:26

I agree with the one who took off her top and ran through the house like Tarzan and found her DH was talking to the plumber!
Definitely agree with LeQueen and anyone who takes AP to extremes. You just wanted to get hold of the DC on the aeroplane and say 'stop the nonsense-you will put that seat belt on THIS MINUTE'.

reelingintheyears Tue 01-Nov-11 13:50:32


The tarzan one was brilliant.

CogitoErgoSometimes Tue 01-Nov-11 13:50:57

My favourite was the 'I've shat myself in the lavatory at Victoria Station, it's all down my legs and haven't any spare clothes' troll. Especially when it evolved into a real-life (bless her heart) MN-er going along to assist and discreetly whispering ...^Cooee! Are you the lady that's shat herself?!^... under every door.

reelingintheyears Tue 01-Nov-11 13:52:22

'My DH leaves shitty cotton wool tips on the side of the bath'...shock

TanteRose Tue 01-Nov-11 13:52:30

OMG, Cogito, did someone actually go to help her? The thread was pulled before I had a chance to read it all...

YaMaYaMa Tue 01-Nov-11 13:53:47

The one with the MNer who made a terrifying Easter Bonnet for her son. Someone linked to it a few months ago and the pic was still on her profile. It is awesome.

CogitoErgoSometimes Tue 01-Nov-11 13:54:46

As far as I know... yes, they went to help. All a massive wind-up and, no doubt, a serious let-down for the Good Samaritan, but killingly funny otherwise.

Fuzzywood Tue 01-Nov-11 13:58:08

<giggling all over again now> did we ever find out what happened the week the plumber was back in the house?
I'd forgotten about the cock sculpture.
This has cheered me up no end grin

I loved the thread describing post-bath whoosh. Still makes me laugh thinking about it.

YaMaYaMa Tue 01-Nov-11 14:02:28
Thumbwitch Tue 01-Nov-11 14:03:08

There was a MNer who posted a picture her very young DS had drawn of what appeared to be a penis - it turned out that it was meant to be granny in her wheelchair (it really did look like a penis though...) - that made me laugh a LOT. grin

LadyClariceCannockMonty Tue 01-Nov-11 14:04:39

Christ, that bonnet is terrifying! Excellent work though – it has genuine frightening character.

The MN-er who wanted to know, for reasons I forget, how her digestive system was performing, time-wise. So she swallowed a piece of lego. Her astonishment at what she had done and her appreciation of the fact that there's nothing a forum would like to do better that to "support" such a person while they await the outcome of their investigation was charming.

Fuzzywood Tue 01-Nov-11 14:08:46

Bloody hell that bonnet is scary, whilst highly amusing at the same time!

God yes the bonnet. I often think of it when construction paper is getting the better of me.

mrsmilesaway Tue 01-Nov-11 14:10:42

Pram huns.

A thread about a nude pic of Madonna. Half the thread was people giggling at her fanjo and the other half was shouting at the people who were laughing. Someone then said it looked like she was giving birth to Rolf Harris. Now whenever I see Rolf I think of Madge's fanjo.

The mner who fell out with a friend after sliding down a wall in gales of laughter when she was told about the friends mum falling out of a car as it went round a roundabout. Her mum was ok but the woman couldn't control her laughter.

msshapelybottom Tue 01-Nov-11 14:11:04

Oh these are great! The one I still giggle at when I think about it was the woman who wandered into her kitchen starkers, got a tin of fanta out of the fridge and was slugging from it with one hand whilst lifting up her boob to examine it with the other hand. At that moment her lovely neighbours walked past the window with a box of home grown veg :D So funny...

Also love the cube of poo one.

MrsWicket Tue 01-Nov-11 14:11:23

The date at the zoo/penquin one. Classic

SarahStratton Tue 01-Nov-11 14:12:24

It was squirty cream wasn't it? Not fanta. Unless I've embellished it in my mind.

ImpYCelyn Tue 01-Nov-11 14:13:38

I love (LeQueen's perhaps?) MIL who believed the dinosaurs were real and was surprised they were being sacrificed after all the expense.

In fact, just last week I heard DH recounting that story to my Dad blush I was so embarrassed that he started with "ImpYCelyn" told me that she read on Mumsnet..."

I also love the Easter bonnet, cock sculpture, and "your minge shock ".

The one about drawing a moustache on your baby before the HV comes was also one of the first things I read on Mumsnet, I felt right at home grin

Empusa Tue 01-Nov-11 14:13:47

The MNer who sent their child to school dressed as the devil only to find they'd changed the theme from Halloween to Heroes. grin

I can't believe that no one has mentioned the bear thread.

Sheer brilliance. Special gold star for the MNer's DP.

And the one about the Christmas cards which arrive year after year from people you've never met but now know all about, addressed to people who have never lived at your house.

LadyBeagleEyes Tue 01-Nov-11 14:16:57

The whole Beesimo saga and the I am not mitmoo threads.
Sadly deleted.

ContraryMartha Tue 01-Nov-11 14:21:26

Oh gosh Mrsmilesaway, now I am laughing at the though of the mother falling out of the car at the roundabout.
Don't suppose you have a link??

ContraryMartha Tue 01-Nov-11 14:21:54


wahwahwah Tue 01-Nov-11 14:23:18

Someone pooing into a sock. Probably not true but the amount of thought that went into other posters trying to work out the logistics of such an event.

SarahStratton Tue 01-Nov-11 14:24:15

I mourn the loss of Mitmoo. Although you may wish to totter over to AIBU, where there is a veeeery interesting thread about an autistic son being traumatised by a neighbour whilst trick or treating.

spooktrain Tue 01-Nov-11 14:27:15

the glittery lady garden thread

Tianc Tue 01-Nov-11 14:29:21

Squirty cream and Fanta: I have greatly humiliated myself-even by my own standards. Please make me feel better by sharing your stories

Angela Hernandez: The Least Professional Moments of My Illustrious Career - Please Feel Free to Add Your Own

I hadn't laughed so much for years and years and years. DP and I wept into the small hours over these – not so much chicken soup for the soul as spicy gumbo.

FunnysInTheGarden Tue 01-Nov-11 14:29:58

I'd totally forgotten that sales/wants/prams etc were all in active once. Ooooh the trouble that used to cause............going over to the pram/sales huns and poking them with sharp sticks

<it was v bad form>

fuzzypicklehead Tue 01-Nov-11 14:29:58

Around the same time I read the poo-ed on pouffe and "Your Minge!", there was a thread about injuries sustained during housework that had me in stitches.

SarahStratton Tue 01-Nov-11 14:32:14

I love Classics. I wish Twigs and Pebbly Shit was in it though. sad

snice Tue 01-Nov-11 14:37:27

This from 'least illustrious moments of your career' makes me snigger everytime

Califrau Wed 19-Nov-08 16:38:16

My father once addressed a press conference to do with the Civil Liberties Lobby and called it the Civil Liberties Lobberty throughout.

BoffinMum Tue 01-Nov-11 14:38:53

The being caught bonking by a DD thread.

ElephantsAndMiasmas Tue 01-Nov-11 14:39:13

Oh my god yes Empusa - from just last week. I cried over that one, "I have sent my daughter to her new Christian school, on a day when the theme is Heroes, dressed as Satan".

Also loved Angela Hernandez ("actually I'M Angela Hernandez") and the body tripping-over. Plus there was one where the MNer was a doctor/paramedic, and saw a man lying face down on a roundabout. Concerned, they stopped the car, rushed over, turned him over and starting feeling his pulse and listening for breath. At that point he mentioned that he was an engineer and had been checking the drains.

The fanta/squirty cream makes me howl! grin

GetOrfMo1Land Tue 01-Nov-11 14:40:52

I think I started the post-bath woosh one blush

I am very very glad that is not in classics.

JenaiMarrHePlaysGuitar Tue 01-Nov-11 14:41:56

From a Pedlars' thread - the tartan fox cube.

The one and only time in my entire life that I have cried with laughter at an item of furniture.

Psammead Tue 01-Nov-11 14:43:10

"Fuck off, grandad"
"As you were, love"

ripstheirthroatoutliveupstairs Tue 01-Nov-11 14:50:35

I am the dwarf grabber.
My favourite was one about wolf fleeces. Tragically it was pulled.

Hullygully Tue 01-Nov-11 14:53:20

Boffy's banana photo from a hundred years ago.

lovingthecoast Tue 01-Nov-11 14:53:28

-The Mnetter who posted that her DDs hair was so frizzy that she's tried everything including semen!!! She obv meant serum and was mortified at her thread title.

-The bikini by the pool.

-The MNetter who performed surgery on herself.

-The one who said she's cried all day when John Lennon was shot because she got muddled and thought it was John Craven! grin

Ive been here getting on for 8years and so much has made me laugh!

SarahStratton Tue 01-Nov-11 14:54:28

Wolef fleeces. I content myself with stalking them in supermarkets now. And posting my findings on FB.

WTF is a post bath whoosh?

AutumnFalls Tue 01-Nov-11 14:56:29

Bobble plate.
Mitchy Inge's pink pony
'your minge' by the pool

and the pus porn ones. I have been on MN for too long- I think pusporn is normal. At a dinner party last Saturday and the hostess (a dotor) was ranting about how cutbacks mean that she cannot perform simple operations now 'such as cutting out an infected sebaceous cyst' without the approval of a panel. I sighed and said longingly 'I'd LOVE to cut out an infected sebaceous cyst'.

Cue tumbleweeds.

No-one there were MNetters then.

BerryLellow Tue 01-Nov-11 15:00:03

When I first joined MN there was a funny trolling thread about a MNer who found her husband had a fetish for kitchen implements. I howled at that one. Can't remember who it turned out to be though.

Also liked WanderingTrolley's thread about inadvertently racing people when you are walking the same way as them.

Angela Hernandez still makes me giggle now

GetOrfMo1Land Tue 01-Nov-11 15:00:13

sarah when you have a bath, and then 3 hours later when in Sainsburys the water which was <ahem> stored within escapes...

<leaves mumsnet for a bit>

Hullygully Tue 01-Nov-11 15:00:53

And the trip advisor revies, of course.

SarahStratton Tue 01-Nov-11 15:04:01

I feel your pain Autumn. I could barely restrain myself in A&E when there was a massive boil in the next cubicle. Wanted to burst through the curtains, shouting 'It's ok, pombears and naice ham. Now let me at it'.

<sadly understands the post bath whoosh now>

crazygracieuk Tue 01-Nov-11 15:04:56

Willy willy willy!!

Apologies if x-posted

Peachy Tue 01-Nov-11 15:06:13

There was one about a lass (obviously a funny troll but nonetheless genius) who shoved blue cheese up her bits to combat thrush, and it ended with it rolling out whilst she was in the supermarket...

trip advisor / pedlars

LMAO at some of the ones on here too; my own guaranteed giggle tale is when my Grandad (94) was trying to show my parents how hard it was for him to get up from a chair and said 'watch how I jack myself off'...

apparently my Dad actually cried with laughter.

GetOrfMo1Land Tue 01-Nov-11 15:08:16

The best post amonst many goldne ones on the tripadvisor thread wasa rambling stream of consciousness about a dozy lass and her sister being refused Karaoke.

It was like some working class chav version of Ibsen, such was the tragedy.

crazygracieuk Tue 01-Nov-11 15:10:36

The husband who ejaculated on his wife's thesis during an argument...

verlainechasedrimbauds Tue 01-Nov-11 15:11:07

Allhailtheaubergine's child's lament over the cutted up pear has now been purloined by me (and DP).
There are various test of unreasonableness and stroppiness which involve quotations from the thread:
"next you will be insisting on finishing your wee..." and anyone unreasonable is clearly an "absolute arse of a woman" who obviously wouldn't hesitate to inflict cutted up pear on unsuspecting victims.

I howled with laughter and it still tickles me now.

JenaiMarrHePlaysGuitar Tue 01-Nov-11 15:15:44

I just had a quick look over at Pedlars, thinking we were overdue another thread, and my jaw didn't drop once.

I'm quite despondent.

BrainDeadSurgeon Tue 01-Nov-11 15:20:43

Pouffe of poo had me in sticthes - especially the Sean Connery impression <wipes tears>

Also Ellaroo's river of sweetcorn - makes me gigle every time DS has sweetcorn

The one about toddler art was very good too!

Munkiii Tue 01-Nov-11 15:28:57

Thank you, thank you all.

I am having a crap day and now I am sitting with tears of mirth rolling down my face...and a fair bit of snot from snorting so much.

I bloody love mumsnet.

wahwahwah Tue 01-Nov-11 15:30:32

Didn't someone here eat a bit of lego to see how long before it 'reappeared'?

omnishambles Tue 01-Nov-11 15:31:42

Whorehammer, tripadvisor and a long lamented lost thread about Thunderduck's poinsettia uses.

TraitorsAreComing Tue 01-Nov-11 15:31:50

Oh, willy willy willy was ace.

And the spunk on the essay.

BrainDeadSurgeon Tue 01-Nov-11 15:35:26

Oh yes the red piece of Lego grin grin grin

wahwahwah Tue 01-Nov-11 15:36:57

I wonder if the lego ever reappeared. Hope it wasn't a 2x8 piece.

I had myself, my DH and both my parents in howling fits reading out the 'lies you have told your children', but the one that still makes me gigglesnort even now is the woman who was told by her father that kiwis were puppy eggs and proceeded to sit with one by the radiator for three days waiting for it to hatch. It's so cruel and funny and sad all at once that you have to laugh.

I was also very taken with the woman who carefully rescued someone's dead pet cat, put it in a box and took it to the vets... turned out all was not quite as it seemed, but I hate to ruin the punchline... <chuckles>

marzipananimal Tue 01-Nov-11 15:37:28

OP your post on the 'Odd things you've done, and then thought 'WTF did I do that?!' thread was possibly the first to make me laugh out loud:

"One time I was walking down the street and saw a girl called Bronagh coming towards me who I had met at a party a week or so before. I couldn't decide if she'd remember me and if I should greet her. I battled with myself until we were level, then suddenly half made up my mind and said "hello Bronagh" in this weird harsh strangled voice from behind her as I stumped away. I sounded like a psycho serial killer stalker."

Still cracks me up grin

I loved the one about how horses were transported to Beijing for Olympics. Sadly it was never moved into Classics.

Tripadvisor one is called 'thickos on tripadviosor' or something and is in mumsnet classics.

SarahStratton Tue 01-Nov-11 15:56:43

Is dead cat in Classics? I thought I'd read them all.

Tripadvisor is excellent.

I can't even find the blimming classics <headdesk>
But yes, I think it is there - famed as the shortest thread ever to make it in.

The one where someone left the wrong present, (a sex toy and chocolate body paint, intended for a bride to be at hen party) to a five year old at a party at a soft play, instead of the child's present shock

SarahStratton Tue 01-Nov-11 16:04:07

Am absolutely FPMSL at it. grin

kenobi Tue 01-Nov-11 16:05:31

Does anyone remember a poster who was so drunk/so nervous in a job interview she lit up a cigarette?

Also speaking of the here "great PFB thread where someone admitted to putting no more tears shampoo in their eye to check it really didn't sting" on the same thread, someone who drove to the hospital and sat outside before they fed their baby strawberries for the first time in case it had an allergic reaction.

It would have been extreme if it had been peanuts, but strawberries???!

I rofled.

BalloonSlayer Tue 01-Nov-11 16:05:34

I can't remember the thread but a comment that always makes me laugh when remembering it was when someone revealed that they spent 15 minutes a day plucking their eyebrows.

Another poster said: Fifteen minutes! Bloody Hell, are you Liam Gallagher?

and for some reason I have been chuckling about that ever since.

FeastofBeans Tue 01-Nov-11 16:08:09

One about an exchange student using too many panty liners, in which one poster told how her 9 year old DS had dissected his sister's used sanitary towel as a 'science experiment'. Disgusting but hilarious grin

LaFilleSurLePont Tue 01-Nov-11 16:14:12

The nanny pasta thread.

The invisible shelf thread in B&Q/Homebase. The one with the sledge and the almshouse. The cleaner and the cup of teal. Really any thread with the OP becoming apopletic when the majority of posters dare to tell them that they're being unreasonable.

The best of the Bradford Exchange thread.

Cutted up pear.

Serum/Semen thread.

The 'I danced last night with the man who killed my dog' thread. I can't remember the exact details,but it was the the OP's vet who had put their dog to sleep once,not that it's funny that the dog had to be euthanised,but the thread was priceless.

I missed the shopping for carbs one.

Haven't read whole thread yet, saving it for later, but I love Angela Hernandez! Can I also add pooh crumbs which is now part of my vocabulary and my other favourite is when a Poster inserted garlic up her back passage to treat worms and ended up stinking out the toilet at the nursery she worked in and was mortified because all her colleagues knew it was her! I still don't know to this day if that was a wind-up, but it still makes me snort, the way she told the story was magnificent! Apologies if these have been mentioned already.

JenaiMarrHePlaysGuitar Tue 01-Nov-11 16:39:23

Someone posted about it saying something like "WTF!!? Buy your kid a real bike ffs! Then there was a big old thread with the usual well its good for kids with SN etc" <<disclaimer I have a child with SN who would probably love this bike by the way>>. For some reason it just made me laugh so much and I still smirk when I think of it five years later.

It was probably the third or fourth thread I read on MN and it was what made me decide to stay. I honestly don't know why because it isn't that funny, just has always stayed with me.

Cue 765 posts of: No No NOOOOOOOOO!!

and 100 from the OP saying: Oh but he's sooooo excited, I don't think anyone will mind really.

The MNer whom it transpired had put tartar sauce in her homemade play-doh instead of cream of tartare. grin

I love the image of her spooning this lumpy, smelly condiment into the mixture and not once thinking 'hold on, I don't remember the play-doh of my childhood containing morsels of gherkins or capers'. grin

I've loved the Per Una and the Pedlars threads, why aren't any of them in Classics???

I think the thread which first made me fall in love with MN was when I (very tentatively) posted in AIBU asking for sympathy because DH had just bought himself some new beige slippers with red stitching which made him look like one of Santa's Little Helpers...there were 100s of replies, and each one hilarious smile

WillbeanChariot Tue 01-Nov-11 18:11:35

I just read Small Fluffy Bundle and snorted! I loved 'your minge', can't think of it without laughing. I always like the ones that are a bit gross but honest, like the mooncup thread about the thwop and the stringy drip.

And WTF was the one where a poster had to wear tights at work to avoid 'vulval debris'? That has stayed with me. One day I will change my name to VulvalDebris.

Happily, DH is away. One hour til bedtime for DS, then I think I will pour a wine and settle into Classics for the evening...

One of my favourites was Crap Tips, where we all linked to those inane tips which are published in Take a Break and Love It etc, alongside dozy pictures of a photo frame made from an old beermat or whatever. It was great, as one of the links was a picture of an adversary of mine from school in a bikini, and I spent many joyful minutes slagging the rancid old cow off.

It's in classics but it is useless and makes no sense, and none of the links work sad

There was one where the OP's H, threw up in the bucket which was in the bath because it had the goldfish in. The fact the goldfish died was horrid but the thread was just hillarious.

And my all time favorite "Stupid things you shouldnt do", and the thread which contined the copper tripping over the dead body.

Twiggy shit SHOULD have gone in classics just for one post alone. A poster had made up a song to the tune of "A few of my favorite things" and renamed it "A few of my chavtastic things". I cant remember who did it now.

Also, another thing which makes me laugh despite having never seen the thread in question, the mumsnetter slubberdegullion was on a thread once saying how high should you sift flour when you are making a cake or whatever. It culminated in slubber getting her husband to take a photo of her sifting flour out of an upstairs window to prove a point (and win the thread). The photo of the High Sift is still on her profile, I always click on it when I see her name and have a giggle.

On night 3 when he came in and said "hmm that smells good" and he was talking about the dinner, she realised she'd been had, so we all had to come up with ideas as to what domestic tasks he could do,m that she could claim really turned her on.

And the thread where Cod was pretending to be Jane, who wondered if she ought to tell her neighbour that her cleaner was smoking while she should be cleaning.

There was a very funny thread about Lapland UK in c2008, we blogged about it that month, I'll try to find the link.

the poster who's mum invited her old headmaster to her wedding for no apparent reason. Was it pagwatch? i might've made that up. I was in tears.

KenDoddsDadsDog Tue 01-Nov-11 21:00:17

Oddly enough I have just been watching Kelly Hoppen choosing Morroccan leather pouffes on TV. And it reminded me of the poo on the pouffe incident. Tried to explain it to DH but he didn't really get it.

LynnCSchreiber Tue 01-Nov-11 21:05:40

I was watching that. Wasn't the dad awful?

Just reread the Tornado Hell. It was one of the first things I read when I first found MN.

does anyone else remember the poster who was in a changing area after swimming, with her little boy (he was maybe 2 or 3 i think?)

her little boy went up to a naked lady and <laughing now> parted her buttcheeks !!!!!

KenDoddsDadsDog Tue 01-Nov-11 21:12:32

MmeLindor Yes he was awful. I love Graham and Green things and she got some of the v pricey stuff that I can only covet!

Have just read the toddler museum of modern art. Hysterical and so clever.

GetOrfMo1Land Tue 01-Nov-11 21:16:51

I think it was pagwatch jenny - what thread was that again, it was very funny grin

Teladi Tue 01-Nov-11 21:27:53

A group of MNetters reading How To Talk So Kids Will Listen together... every time I even think about that thread I weep with laughter.

TraitorsAreComing Tue 01-Nov-11 21:32:01

Bloody hell I completely missed that one Teladi - cheers.

You should have slapped him and told him not to be fresh

And sold his turtle

grin grin

And there's pages to go yet!

ThankyouWankyou Tue 01-Nov-11 21:42:58

Always prominant in my mind are:
Cube of Poo.
The lady who fell out of the car going round the roundabout.
Shitting in a sock.
Wank mitten
"Mine's a ginger muffin!"
The foreign chap who's English wasn't his first language, kept pronouncing biscuits as bees-squits still makes me giggle.
The thread on the Husband who had the itchy arse hole, and kept sticking cotton buds up his bum to relieve the itch. A MNer linked a picture to a pipe cleaner, and I havent been able to look at them ever since without chortling.

So funny!

Alwaysworthchecking Tue 01-Nov-11 21:44:40

The tankini bottoms by the pool and the avenging minmin both had me crying with laughter. Cutted up pear was a work of genius and the one with the stainless steel kitchen implements.

Iggly Tue 01-Nov-11 21:58:04

Your minge your minge - ace.

The thread that made me want to join MN was an AIBU to let my son pee in a beaker. A kid weed in a plastic cup at playgroups (or something) and the person washing up objected. It all kicked off and was deleted in the end. Shame really as I'd love to read it again grin

SpringHeeledJack Tue 01-Nov-11 21:58:29

re the talk so kids will listen

does anyone else find it interesting reading Old Mumsnet?

I do. It's a bit like medieval church latin. Or Beowulf or summink

eg "oooh look! they had quite a few mum names then. Oh, yes, so they did. The spelling is a bit hard to read. Hmmm, yes, lots of typos"

<dons white gloves to look at more Yore MN>

PerAr6ua Tue 01-Nov-11 22:08:02

Oh I'm crying and I can't get a sentence out to tell DH why. Glad someone else remembers Hedgehog Cam and 'he was polishing his globes shock ' - did anyone ever admit to trolling that one?

noddyholder Tue 01-Nov-11 22:11:03

Some of this is really reminding me of some corkers .I know I will get lynched but MN did use to be a lot funnier

SpringHeeledJack Tue 01-Nov-11 22:11:06

Hedgehog Cam was the first thread I ever saw on mn

my sister linked it for me

I cried

Sorry if anyone's already posted a link, but could I have one to the bikini bottoms thread? Please? And is it the same as the Your Minge Your MINGE one? Must be, surely.

I think the Mooncup/slaughtered chicken at work one might have been me. blush I'm much less clumsy now.

One of the first ever posts I read on MN was actually a story about a story. The lady, apparentely, was having her bits stitched up following childbirth and the doc got a bit too energetic with his stitching causing him to push his little wheely stool from underneath him and ending up face first in her faff! grin

TraitorsAreComing Tue 01-Nov-11 22:28:45

"medieval church latin. Or Beowulf"


Yes! I leaving the rest of that thread till tomorrow when I will be more sober alert.

What about lists left in shopping torleys? I think that was the first time I encountered her Fishiness.

Hamster Stew was fab.

And the weird polyamory one, with the self-sufficient bigamists. (or were they all trolls?) I think I might actually have C&P that one because it was so incredible.

MrsChemist Tue 01-Nov-11 22:35:07

I was crying with laughter at the British gas thread where the OP was on the phone, winding up the BG people on one phone, with Eon on the other phone, listening in.

QuintessentialShadow Tue 01-Nov-11 22:38:19

grin so chuffed that somebody remembers, and giggles over midges of all things, due to my unfortunate adventure with the man eating midgets.....

poorbuthappy Tue 01-Nov-11 22:45:37

Every time there is a thread like this I hope and pray that someone will magically link to the olympic horses thread...but sadly it never happens.

I wept with laughter at that...and still do occasionally. grin

Hullygully Tue 01-Nov-11 22:48:18

There were lots of good threads back then <sighs>

GetOrfMo1Land Tue 01-Nov-11 22:54:06

First thread I ever posted on in 2006 was a mad rant about someone who let their kid piss in carrier bags in Tesco.

Slubberdegullion Tue 01-Nov-11 22:55:03

another evening lost to reading threads past.

QS midgets was just brilliant. Is it still about?

The mn memory that still makes me all teary with laughter was from a little thread in chat that has now long gone. A bunch of us decided to set up a one night only quiche and all needed to perform a hazing ritual to gain access. I have NO idea why, but we all thought it a great idea to see how many megabloks we could fit in our mouths, and then to photograph it for evidence.

Maybe we were all very sleep deprived.

Well we all dutifully complied, but it was purplemonkeydishwasher's photo that did it for me. There it was, a complete strangers mouth crammed full of megabloks but the picture was all misted up because she had turned the camera round to photograph herself and her heavy breathing through her nose had fogged up the lens.

Next to the photo on her profile she had written

I hate you all

I think maybe you needed to be there, but the sense of camaraderie was something else. I properly fell in love with mn that day. And a tiny bit of wee came out laughing at that photo, and that's saying something as I have a pelvic floor of steel.

cyb Tue 01-Nov-11 22:57:52

<adds another sigh>

<goes back to twitter for larks>

QuintessentialShadow Tue 01-Nov-11 22:58:46

It was in chat Slubber, and some tech or other promised to dig it out from the archive when somebody asked for it to be included in Classics, but I guess not enough people requested this, so they could not be bothered.... (hint)

LEMONAIDE Tue 01-Nov-11 22:59:03

I cant ever hear foxes mentioned anymore without thinking about the person who had a hungry looking fox outside and wondered if she should "make it a sandwich"

TraitorsAreComing Tue 01-Nov-11 23:00:35

Well I'd like it to be in Classics. I'm sure I can't be the only one.

It sounds brilliant. I have megablocks hidden in the cupboard for Christmas as it happens.

Slubberdegullion Tue 01-Nov-11 23:03:28

<taps glass>

Coo-ee mnhq. QS's midgets. It was a goodun. Please can it go into classics, if you still have it?

Thank you smile

ShipsBat Tue 01-Nov-11 23:05:12

It has to be the Toddler confessions thread for me. I was feeding DD when I read it, and kept jiggling her off my boob I was laughing so much grin
I came back to the thread after she'd gone in her cot, and DH rushed out of the study at one point as I was literally howling with laughter. He thought something dreadful had happened, but I wasn't coherent enough to let him know that everything was fine (except for my pelvic floor completely giving up on me blush

Fishpond Tue 01-Nov-11 23:05:42

Can someone please link the bikini bottom thread?!

Fishpond Tue 01-Nov-11 23:06:15

Ships can you link that one too? grin

GhoulLove Tue 01-Nov-11 23:07:44

Poo stories
Wedding hell
Penguins 1 and 2
Penguins the remake starring annathepenguin
Garlic arse (and no it didn't kill the worms)

And the KX poo troll although this lead in RL to a MNers sister coming to KX with her gym kit on a mission of mercy only to find there was no-one there. She got a bollocking from her line manager for being late after lunch as well.


Where is the shitting elf? Please show me it please!

531800000008 Tue 01-Nov-11 23:11:42

Here is the link to the gift mix up thread v funny

GetOrfMo1Land Tue 01-Nov-11 23:19:03

OH OH OH I adored that poundland thread.

I roared at prangles.

However I didn't really get it, I thought cod made up St Moritz, then I wasa in Poundland for real, saw St Moritz on a shelf and nearlt passed out with excitement.

I bought some - it was shit.

I love the sound of megablocks slubber. Didn't you also have a thread where you all baked cakes and had a competition to photograph them in the most scenic surroundings?

531800000008 Tue 01-Nov-11 23:21:19

yy the Vic Sponge comps, they were fab

ShipsBat Tue 01-Nov-11 23:23:39

Fishpond I can't link from my phone, but I'll try and find it!

Slubberdegullion Tue 01-Nov-11 23:33:07

yup GetOrf. That was the LDC in scenic surroundings.

The cheesecake comp was the funniest when Franny got PROPERLY CROSS as her effort had inadvertently been judged in the childrens' cheesecake category and won.

Slubberdegullion Tue 01-Nov-11 23:34:12

Have just read Poundland. vv funny. Baldy on fire.

snice Tue 01-Nov-11 23:36:55

i have tracked down the photos from the "Afternoon Tea Tray for One" MN competition.

Note especially entry N

Slubberdegullion Tue 01-Nov-11 23:40:09

Oh god. Roar @ entry N

snice Tue 01-Nov-11 23:41:09

actually entry B is v gd

GetOrfMo1Land Tue 01-Nov-11 23:44:30

Oh god that is genius.

I love the competitions with photos, I ache with envy that I have never been involved in one.

531800000008 Tue 01-Nov-11 23:53:20

not VSC, but LDC <smacks forehead>

oh the afternoon tea ones, so so funny

SpringHeeledJack Tue 01-Nov-11 23:58:56

the tankini one is gorn

how did that happen?

GetOrfMo1Land Wed 02-Nov-11 00:01:52

Oh that is wonderful.

I love the thought of a mumsnetter driving to Chatsworth and photographing a cake amongst all the sheep and toruists.

GetOrfMo1Land Wed 02-Nov-11 00:02:59

Do another competition.

Min you I couldn't enter as I can't bake cakes and dd has stolen both cameras and broken one and left the other one in the Netherlands.


FearfulYank Wed 02-Nov-11 01:59:55

<marking place for a time when my DH is not demanding the laptop>

FearfulYank Wed 02-Nov-11 02:28:28

I have told pretty much everyone I know about Megatron beating her chest and running in front of the plumber. My mother was screaming on the phone for a good ten minutes. grin

"Your minge!" is tops for the line "so I was stood inflating shit"... PMSL.

And for some reason that one about the mumsnetter who hid behind her sofa because she forgot some workman was coming...and then crawled out and he was staring at her through the window? I almost wet myself every time I think of it.

FearfulYank Wed 02-Nov-11 02:34:46

And I'm still sad Beesimo is not real. I loved her.

ripstheirthroatoutliveupstairs Wed 02-Nov-11 08:48:17

I can't do links, but for whoever it was that asked about my midget. Me and DD were in a toys shop, I was bored and told her she had two minutes or something. I said to her 'time to go' grabbed her hand and started to leave. I realised her hand felt different and looked down to see a cross looking midget or dwarf person on the other end.
DD was looking a bit confused so I grabbed her and we left. She told everyone she met that day that I was trying to steal a dwarf from a toy shop.

LynnCSchreiber Wed 02-Nov-11 08:49:27

ooh, I do like the cake competition. That was before my time.

Funny to read the old posts, from around 2007. There was a different tone on MN, wasn't there.

Hullygully Wed 02-Nov-11 08:59:42

Less Frothing Berserkery and haha I pooed myself back then.

That's another topic we need: The Elevated Tone with Occasional Competitions Topic.

It was a different tone - even if we feel we shouldn't say that now. It was funnier, and it was clever. MartianBishop used to start some corkers - like alternative openings to novels - they didn't necessarily make classics, but they were hugely entertaining. It was one of the reasons I got drawn in so quickly!

Hullygully Wed 02-Nov-11 09:07:06

Where have all the flowers gone?

Where have all the flowers gone?

SpringHeeledJack Wed 02-Nov-11 09:13:59

don't mention Moldies

it always makes me fear New Moldies


Hullygully Wed 02-Nov-11 09:16:16

Really? All the bright, fun people went to Moldies?


I thought it wsas the arsey self-pitying ones.

LynnCSchreiber Wed 02-Nov-11 09:19:39


Didn't mean to bring that all up again.

It was different though, less earthy and more intellectual. I like both, depending on my mood.

There are still pockets of the old MN, they can be hard to find amongst the bumsex/poo stories.

Hullygully Wed 02-Nov-11 09:20:37

<rips MN apart looking for the teeny hidden pockets>

SpringHeeledJack Wed 02-Nov-11 09:23:13

I don't mind the poo.

I don't like the <whisper> right wing benefit bashing stuff, tho


JJ Wed 02-Nov-11 09:33:29

QS - the midges/midgets story was in chat and has been deleted [sob]. Could you please tell it again?

I don't think tone has changed because of people leaving - I think it's more to do with more people coming in. I don't think it's a bad or good thing though tbh - if I had to pick one, I'd say good thing on the whole, esp with the "hide topics/threads" facility.

Pagwatch Wed 02-Nov-11 09:37:04

Oh, it has to be your minge! that made me laugh more than any other. I cried.
And trip advisor.

I miss a lot of the big threads somehow. I think it is because I was rarely on here at night until fairly recently.

ledkr Wed 02-Nov-11 09:38:40

Pirate sex,knitted wank mit and willy willy willy. Ok not very origional but very funny still.

SuckItAndSee Wed 02-Nov-11 09:46:13

ooh the cake threads were hilarious
as was the Unreasonable Supersoaker
but i misses "your minge" - can anyone do a linky?

fluffythevampirestabber Wed 02-Nov-11 09:52:54

The one that still makes me chortle was one about a mad woman who was going to have her baby in the fish tank where she kept her Koi Carp - does anyone else remember it?

BupcakesandHaunting Wed 02-Nov-11 09:55:59

Does anyone remember that thread about the MNer who was either internet dating or had been RL dating a bloke. She sent him a text message saying "this is my new number" but forgot to put her name. He sent a flirty text back despote not knowing who it was and she thought "hmm, that's a bit of a forward text considering he doesn't know who sent it!" then she and he text each other and he thought she was this woman called Sue or something and she arranged to meet him on a date at the bird sanctuary or somewhere really shit and she was asking how far she should go and all of MN were cackling and egging her on and telling her what to say. I almost rang in sick to work so that I could sit refreshing that thread all day. I nearly shat my cervix out laughing.

BupcakesandHaunting Wed 02-Nov-11 09:56:46

Just looked at the Supersoaker thread and I can't believe that it was written about two years before I joined! I know about that thread as though I were there!

MsBrian Wed 02-Nov-11 10:05:29

Bups wasn't that Shiney's penguin thread? Or am I confused

MsBrian Wed 02-Nov-11 10:08:55

So if I wanted to look up some of these threads that you meanies keep mentioning but no links should I just try serching for the thread title?

IwoulddoPachacuti Wed 02-Nov-11 10:14:13

HermanMumster Wed 02-Nov-11 10:18:54

Who was it tested a disposable nappy as an emergency wee device (for motorway delays and such) but was informed by Mumsnet that she had to do it over her sofa or it wouldn't be a fair test? Or something?

SayCoolNowSayWhip Wed 02-Nov-11 10:19:19

Anyone remember the season n shake chicken one a few months back? The OP's DP was at the pub and his friend had come round and she was wondering whether it would be rude to give him dinner or not? Was a complete wind up of course by Rhubarb but the puns coming out had me in stitches!

PadmeHum Wed 02-Nov-11 10:30:05

The post birth recount where the woman was in a tiny room being stitched when she slipped down the bed crushing the doctor between the wall and her birth ravaged vagina. Wish I could find that one.

BupcakesandHaunting Wed 02-Nov-11 10:30:42

Was it, MsBrian?! It might have been actually... I didn't realise that Shiney had been the OP!

TeWihara Wed 02-Nov-11 10:31:58

I can't find the shitting elf - someone else must remember it!

It was in AIBU, and the MNers fiance had got dressed up as an elf (for his stag I think) and got horrendously drunk...

Phlox Wed 02-Nov-11 10:37:16

There was one years ago about a woman who had strunk her husbands best dungarees in the wash. It still makes me chuckle when I think about it

VivianDarkbloom Wed 02-Nov-11 11:19:26

Actually, the MNer whose horrendous pus-filled boil crashed a very genteel thread about KitchenAid (due to a mis-link) still makes me cackle. I can't hear or see the word "KitchenAid" without snorting.

VivianDarkbloom Wed 02-Nov-11 11:24:19

Oh my giddy aunt, I just saw my thread is in Classics.


Had to be the thread with a typo in the title that made it...!

BupcakesandHaunting Wed 02-Nov-11 11:49:04

Thanks Mrs Brian! grin can spend another afternoon roaring at old threads now instead of doing actual stuff

I know it's my own thread but the Robert Mugabe eyeliner thread makes me laugh just thinking of it, mainly due to the work of ShirleyKnot, Chickens, UrsulaBuffay, Curryspice and others. It descends into nonsense about deep throat and man essence in the eye quite quickly sad but every now and then a valiant poster would pop up amongst the unspeakable filth to try and help with my original query. grin

MsBrian Wed 02-Nov-11 11:55:35

<sigh> I'm never going to win this name battle am I.....

I have given in and changed from Brain to Brian, but Bups people still somehow manage to misspell it by changing Ms to Mrs....

I'll have you know that I'm not a Mrs - there's a reason why it's Ms and not Mrs.

MsBrian Wed 02-Nov-11 11:56:49

blush sorry for the hijack and shamless atention seeking

Helena77 Wed 02-Nov-11 12:01:45

A thread from a woman who asked "AIBU to have chucked a jug of piss over my DH". The incredulity from everyone on the thread, and her absolute insistence that he'd deserved it, was a joy to behold. It was the first thread I ever read on here and made me howl so much I just had to keep coming back.

MsBrian Wed 02-Nov-11 12:05:54

Oh this reminds me of the threads with people either throwing things into neighbours' gardens and/or having things thrown at them
I'm a sucker for this kind of thing it really tickles me <imature>

SayCoolNowSayWhip Wed 02-Nov-11 12:11:01

Oh and MitMoo was great. And the subsequent name changing, and the lack of spanking from MNHQ for a WHOLE weekend while we ran RIOT, and then got our wrists severely slapped on the Monday blush

It's the little things....

GetOrfMo1Land Wed 02-Nov-11 12:14:47

Yes, that mitmoo thread was funny, especially when every so often someone would say 'how the fuck is this thread still here?'

I think MNHQ thought 'oh bollocks to it, let 'em carry on this once'

BupcakesandHaunting Wed 02-Nov-11 12:16:11

Oh sorry MsBrian, genuine mistake! Honest! grin

Mitmoo was a thing to treasure. I actually miss her.

SayCoolNowSayWhip Wed 02-Nov-11 12:17:04

YY Getorf; twas like being naughty schoolchildren in the classroom while the teacher popped out for a fag.

I am such a child!

And then any subsequent mentions of MitMoo then meant the entire thread got pulled! <Wonders whether this will now happen to this thread....>

GetOrfMo1Land Wed 02-Nov-11 12:21:00

It was great fun saycool.

I loved it when the mitmoo amnesty ENDED and every subsequent mention was deleted like that.

Then coldsancerre created the Floral Fuck Off (for those who haven't seen it, when the flower emoticons were unveiled some miserable bastards among us moaned about it - coldsancerre then created a tableau of smileys and floweres which spelled FUCK OFF. She then did CUNT and MITMOO (the floral mitmoo was deleted) sad

SayCoolNowSayWhip Wed 02-Nov-11 12:23:07

Oh my God the floral displays! Things of beauty. Bless ColdSancerre for the ridiculously long time and effort spent creating them.

MsBrian Wed 02-Nov-11 12:27:40

O O O where are the floral displays? Please please please link / screen shot / anyone kept anything?

GetOrfMo1Land Wed 02-Nov-11 12:29:06

Hang on, will have a look.

marzipananimal Wed 02-Nov-11 12:30:53

Ah yes the Mitmoo threads were fun smile
I missed what happened with Beesimo though? Did she turn out not to be real?

SayCoolNowSayWhip Wed 02-Nov-11 12:31:29

MsBrian, here and here


GetOrfMo1Land Wed 02-Nov-11 12:31:45

floral fuck offs

The thread is very funny, MNHQ deleted the first floral fuck off, we all came on and wept and moaned, then MNHQ said sorry for deleting the swear word (coldsancerre reinstates it herself in the end).

I love MNHQ for that grin

GetOrfMo1Land Wed 02-Nov-11 12:36:40

Haha just read the floral fuck offs thread again, so funny, especially when most of MNHQ pile on <warm glow>

VivianDarkbloom Wed 02-Nov-11 12:37:14

If somebody explains what on earth Mitmoo is, will it survive long enough for me to read it before it's deleted?

BupcakesandHaunting Wed 02-Nov-11 12:38:43

Oh cripes. I would LOVE to tell you all about Mitmoo but I don't want this thread to go pouffe! sad

SayCoolNowSayWhip Wed 02-Nov-11 12:41:55

Getorf, me too. Especially Captain's fake convo between Rebecca HQ and her DH. Am PMSL at work right now grin

SayCoolNowSayWhip Wed 02-Nov-11 12:42:58

Hang on, Vivian, I have a PM somewhere that I will cut and paste for you. For some reason I ended up being the MitMoo social secretary and PM'd about ten million MNers about the situation. God knows why, I was just an innocent bystander.... <Whistles innocently>

TheSecondComing Wed 02-Nov-11 12:44:09

Message withdrawn at poster's request.

Teladi that "How to Talk so Kids Will Listen" thread is very good. I quite like the fact that I don't understand why exactly it's so funny. And the added mystery element of why the OP, who is clearly called Porcupine is referred to throughout as Cod.

SayCoolNowSayWhip Wed 02-Nov-11 12:47:03

Have PM'd you Vivian.

TSC - I had not heard / missed the "your minge your minge" one but is definitely up there now as one of the funniest things I have read. Classic! Does your DH still bring it up now? grin

SayCoolNowSayWhip Wed 02-Nov-11 13:05:04

FFS - all of you. It's now after one o'clock and I have done no very little work. And lots of sniggering.


I remember a thread about a pregnant mumsnetter who had gone to the swimming baths with her DH and DD and taken her bikini bottoms off at the side of the pool in her pregnancy induced fugue.
I cried with laughter, especially at her description of her DH's face as she folded the bottoms neatly onto a chair near the side of the pool.

It was excellent.

MsBrian Wed 02-Nov-11 13:07:26

I can't believe you're complaining SayCool - you're the one sending out links and stuff!

I have been bad an added to the floral displays of Bad Words. Twas fun! grin

tangledweb Wed 02-Nov-11 13:14:49

Possibly inappropriate but loved the one during the Rauol Moat saga with the horror of Sue Sims hair, the wrong pronunciation of ponteland and the surreality of Gazza turning up with a dressing gown and some chicken.

There's been nothing new since all the hoo-hah, Thumbwitch (that I know of anyway). Lots of rumours about various subsequent posts which seem a bit dodgy and so get the Bovine curse thrown at them. Will PM you what I PM'd everyone else, but tis only what happened at the time which I thought you were there for.... IIRC. grin

uniCorny Wed 02-Nov-11 13:19:27

someone started a thread in g&t about their hamster. Twas very funny.

Thumbwitch Wed 02-Nov-11 13:19:38

I was indeed but will read your PM just in case it has any extra salacious salient points grin

YaMaYaMa Wed 02-Nov-11 13:20:43

Oh could I have a Mitmoo PM please? I read a few weird threads by/about her but then didnt come on mn for a few days. Was it as good as the Beesimo stuff? Coz that was hilarious, with all the DLass 1 boll and all that grin

LynnCSchreiber Wed 02-Nov-11 13:20:49

The floral displays has to go into Classics.

LeoTheLateBloomer Wed 02-Nov-11 13:22:05

I just had to stifle highly inappropriate giggles when I saw a dwarf and was reminded of the MNer who tried to take one by the hand in a toy shop thinking he/she was her child shock blush

FreakoidOrganisoid Wed 02-Nov-11 13:28:32

I obviously spend too much time on mn, remember pretty much every one mentioned blush

I seem to remember a particularly hilarious phase of mn around 2006, every other thread had me in stitches (nb this may actually have been having a newborn baby related hysteria)

I think it was on shineys stupid things thread but Laurie's "I'm clearly a feral shitter but have standards for boffing <nose in air>" (quoting from memory may be slightly wrong) comment has always stayed with me! grin

GetOrfMo1Land Wed 02-Nov-11 13:38:12

Yes, MNHQ, please can you put the floral fuck offs into classics.


kenobi Wed 02-Nov-11 13:39:44

Oh thank the baby jesus for this thread. I can now waste even more sections of my life

Can't wait to read the nanny pasta one Traitors

The one that always has me in stitches is the one where the MNetter had invited her friend over for a visit and the friend's son proceeded to hump all the soft furnishings without being told off ....

Sea of sweetcorn finished me off.

bibbitybobbitybloodyaxe Wed 02-Nov-11 13:50:54

A classic thread which has me in stitches is MorningPaper's rather naughty p-take of our good friends over at NetMums here

and I loved the shitting elf (it wasn't really about the poo Hully), grammer police, and the woman who wanted to charge her inlaws for Christmas lunch.

Kveta Wed 02-Nov-11 14:02:38

oh god, am weeping at the nethuns spoof. weeping.

my favourite recent one was the little girl going to school in a devil costume for the help for heroes appreciation day - where the kids had to dress up as their hero. At a church school.

I can never remember threads past about a week or two though.

JenaiMarrHePlaysGuitar Wed 02-Nov-11 14:05:14

But the woman who wanted to charge her inlaws for lunch wasn't really wanting to charge them, she was after a contribution as it was going to cost her a bloody fortune (and it wasn't like she'd invited them).

I can't believe I remember that thread. I got quite worked up on her behalf .

bibbitybobbitybloodyaxe Wed 02-Nov-11 14:13:18

Oh gawd, lets not have it all again re. the Christmas lunch one (but she was asking if £50 per person sounded about right iirc) grin

Fishpond Wed 02-Nov-11 14:27:00

Does anyone remember the woman who wanted to ask relatives to give her PFB only wooden toys? grin

JenaiMarrHePlaysGuitar Wed 02-Nov-11 14:28:58

SWNBU grin wink

Oh Fishpond I so want to read that!

Fishpond Wed 02-Nov-11 14:29:31

Haha I'll see if I can find it!!

Fishpond Wed 02-Nov-11 14:31:04

Wooden Toys Only for my PFB

I wish the OP would come back now that her child is nearly 1 and tell us what toys they have grin

Who was it who had a Sunday roast lobbed over her garden fence? confused

exoticfruits Wed 02-Nov-11 14:44:43

I remember the Wooden toy brigade thinking DCs had grown out of toys by 7yrs, which of course they would if wood was the only material.
The really funny one, if you didn't feel so sorry for poor little Finn, was this link that someone gave.

josephinebonaparte Wed 02-Nov-11 14:45:51

The medieval mumsnet thread

exoticfruits Wed 02-Nov-11 14:46:40

Lovely of course from an adult point of view, but she had it ready before he was born to go through to 5yrs with no room for him to stamp his personaility on it.

bibbitybobbitybloodyaxe Wed 02-Nov-11 14:48:09

Oh yes, the medieval mumsnet one was also vair good.

AbsofCroissant Wed 02-Nov-11 14:58:58

Thickos on tripadvisor is my favourite thread, ever
The NM invasion which led to "grammer police"
The Dallas and Cardigans thread that was deleted, and led t a special thread JUST FOR ME from Hully
The thread about uninvited groping where someone came on and gave this whole weirdy story about spouse swapping and sheep
