In advance of the release of The Angry Birds Movie we thought it would be fun to let Angry Birds loose over the topic for the next four days. We very much hope you enjoy them but if you don't, not to worry; they'll be fluttering off in a few days.

Oh did wonder about the new angrybird

angrybird to add to the chocolatem

You can't bribe people to like shit stuff.

I can't believe they made a movie out of a silly game.

Just wondering how people think a site the size of mn can function without advertising?! No likey, no clicky! Simples!!

I've never noticed such a blatant shout out on here before. Keep the ads popping up at the top of the screen by all means but a post to openly advertise a presumably shit film is just a bit disappointing in my opinion. I'm really surprised.

Yes we do need advertising to fund the site, as it's free to use but not free to run. We try to do it in an imaginative way though and obviously there are lots of brands we won't work with and formats we turn down...

angrybird cool! I don't mind.

I do mind that I thought this was going to be a rant about some people getting arsey on aibu though blush

Oooh who? grin

herecomesthsun Tue 10-May-16 10:23:08

yes I thought we were the angry birds grin

As an angry old bird myself, I'd quite like to have that emoticon available permanently - just to save time wink.

WorraLiberty Tue 10-May-16 10:27:45

Of course the advertising is shameless

Why shouldn't it be? confused

angrybird I quite like it. The newer emojis are a lot sleeker in appearance than the older ones. Perhaps the older smileys could be earmarked for a bit of refining treatment Justine?

It's quite fun. I do like the way you produce new emojis from time to time. The tardis and dragon were great.

BoatyMcBoat Tue 10-May-16 10:55:54

Though I think using brew for tea is a bit bonkers, but hey.

ProcrastinatorGeneral Tue 10-May-16 11:08:31

I have two boys desperate to see the new film. I'm going to take them, and I'll be toting ear defenders and a good bookgrin

Doesn't matter what happens on this site, there's always someone moaning about it. Get over it or go to the glittery site.

I'd rather have an angry bird emoji than bloody glittery tickers!

inlovewithhubby Tue 10-May-16 11:20:43

Aibu to not know what a glittery ticker is? Or what the glittery site is? Almost certainly I imagine, though I'm inwardly grateful.

bungmean Tue 10-May-16 11:24:06

I thought a glittery ticker was a euphemism for a vajazzle.
