Some posters are more special than others

(thought that would get a few people in)

and should, therefore, be allowed to use more pictures a day than the average.

I will happily give my daily allowance (as long as I can keep the occasional one for tennis-related emergencies) to SparklingBrook, because she uses them so well.

What do you think?

Maryz Tue 15-Apr-14 20:27:26

I can see I may have to bump this a bit, to try to get it noticed.

I am happy to accept nominations for other posters to get larger allowances of various things (suggestions welcome).

Forgettable Tue 15-Apr-14 20:28:59

Yes indeed I relinquish my photo quota henceforth

usualsuspectt Tue 15-Apr-14 20:29:14

I will give all the humptie wee faces to SM grin

Forgettable Tue 15-Apr-14 20:30:25

Mostly because I am super thick tech-wise and couldn't do a photo even if the bleedin' Queen wanted me to.

Maryz Tue 15-Apr-14 20:30:35

I am also happy to offer my LTB's to AnyFucker.

AtYourCervix Tue 15-Apr-14 20:31:00


Maryz what a lovely thought, I agree 6 is never enough especially when they are of important things like this,

Maryz Tue 15-Apr-14 20:31:31

Forgettable, I can do them on my computer, not on iPad or phone.

It takes a lot of effort. I have to find them. Then save them. Then find where I saved them confused.

Then add them.

I'm sure there is an easier way.

AtYourCervix Tue 15-Apr-14 20:31:47



And now I have run out. Again. What if I need to post a picture of Zippy from Rainbow in an emergency? shock

AtYourCervix Tue 15-Apr-14 20:33:33

i'm shit at photos. someone else can have mine. it takes too long on my phone and 3/4 of the time it doesn't work and it's too bloody complicated on the pooter to find, save, dig out and post the bugger. by which time it's not funny any more.

Maryz Tue 15-Apr-14 20:33:34

Oh bunnies <squeeeee>

<counts on fingers, one week to Easter, yep, ok>

tbusmile tbugrin tbusad tbuwink tbushock tbuangry tbuenvy tbublush tbuhmm tbubiscuit tbuconfused

Maryz Tue 15-Apr-14 20:34:26

[arf] at AYC

I agree about photos. It's taken me ten years to conquer emoticons and links, and half the time my strikeouts still don't work.

Ohbyethen Tue 15-Apr-14 20:35:05

I still can't post pictures from my phone after it suddenly stopped working. So my quota is free to a good home.

Can I have everyone's who doesn't want them? I will put them to good use and I want post anything rude. Promise.

Eastpoint Tue 15-Apr-14 20:35:10

We can remember what Zippy looks like but I find I need reminding how beautiful Rob Lowe is. Losing my memory, need some sympathy. Now if she had more pictures, she could put up a picture of a young John Taylor.

MirandaWest Tue 15-Apr-14 20:35:50

I don't think I've used any photos so some people should get to have a lot to use up all the spare ones smile


YoniMatopoeia Tue 15-Apr-14 20:36:07

Oooh. Bunny emoticons tbugrin

Exactly East. Haven't put a picture of him up for about a week eons.

Maryz Tue 15-Apr-14 20:43:50

Is this John Taylor?

Eastpoint Tue 15-Apr-14 21:15:27

Very good Maryz. Just the sort of reminder I needed.

Maryz Tue 15-Apr-14 21:18:23

So where are mnhq shock?

This is a very important thread donchano?

I'm tempted to report it, but I suspect they may have a few more important things on their hands (like sleep, possibly, or resuming their holidays grin).

RustyBear Tue 15-Apr-14 21:36:41

Emergency picture of Zippy for Sparklingbrook.
Now if you need it before you get your new allowance you can just link to this thread.....

Maryz Tue 15-Apr-14 21:38:33

I only have two left


I could Hoff. Or maybe a quick Tsonga.

Choices, choices - maybe I don't want to give my allowance to Sparkling after all.

LineRunner Tue 15-Apr-14 21:38:35

Does anybody want my fucking biscuits?

Valpollicella Tue 15-Apr-14 21:39:41

throws tuppence in

Maryz Tue 15-Apr-14 21:40:09

Liney, I've just realised I posted a biscuit with ears up there ^^

I'm very upset as I've never done one before, I just cut and pasted the lot.

Maryz Tue 15-Apr-14 21:42:08

I forgot to say - they are looking for you over here LineRunner - someone was asking about your hot builder.

I thought I should say it was true (I hope it still is) because I was busy saying the rest were all bollocks tbugrin

This thread is perfect. Zippy, Rob Lowe and John Taylor. I am happy. Well i would be if I had more pictures. grin

LineRunner Tue 15-Apr-14 22:19:33

Thank you, Maryz, I will go have a looky see thing.

MrsKwazii Tue 15-Apr-14 22:24:03

I give you baby otter pointing at ice cubes. Then someone else can have the rest of my quota.

Maryz Tue 15-Apr-14 22:52:35

That's just beyootyful, MrsK.

Just the type of thing Sparkling would post.

It has a cute fluffy animal, and is just a tad, erm, weird grin

I have this one in reserve Maryz, waiting for the right moment

Eastpoint Tue 15-Apr-14 22:58:47

That has really puzzled my husband Sparkling thank you.

MardyBaaLamb Tue 15-Apr-14 23:00:05

Is this a royalty thread?

I vote for Maryzzzz.

Maryz Tue 15-Apr-14 23:07:12

Oh shit, Mardy shock

Now I'm screwed. The Scottish one will be along in a minute to put me in my place.

Maryz Tue 15-Apr-14 23:08:34

That ^ up there ^ is exactly the whole point of this thread.

Anyone who can produce a photograph like that (please put it mid-bunfight somewhere) should get more than six pictures a day, surely?

We need a website-wide vote.

McIngOutTheEasterBunny Tue 15-Apr-14 23:15:13

<Rocks in just to show off easter name change>

Can you guess who it is blush

Grennie Tue 15-Apr-14 23:17:16

I have never posted a photo here

Post one Grennie, surprise us....

Maryz Tue 15-Apr-14 23:18:43

They are all great.

Is there an Easter NameChange thread?

I wonder who I was last year.

And no, I don't know who you are. I should, shouldn't I blush?

Maryz Tue 15-Apr-14 23:19:11

Hi Grennie.

I see you survived That Thread grin

Is that you McPhee?

Scarletohello Tue 15-Apr-14 23:21:46

Here is my cat.

And a bunny tbusmile

McIngOutTheEasterBunny Tue 15-Apr-14 23:22:03

Hazzah <said in the style of Mike the f-ing knight>


Scarletohello Tue 15-Apr-14 23:22:22

Yey and they both worked !


Pasithea Tue 15-Apr-14 23:25:50

My entry

Eastpoint Tue 15-Apr-14 23:27:01

If we're just going to put up pictures of pets, here's a little dog who'd like a tummy rub.

MaRezerection Tue 15-Apr-14 23:27:26

I have Eastered Up as well. Sort of.

MrsKwazii Wed 16-Apr-14 07:16:36

Some pantone kitties to kick Wednesday off wink

minniebar Wed 16-Apr-14 07:30:23

THANK YOU for introducing me to a new meme. I love a good meme.

Ohbyethen Wed 16-Apr-14 07:35:22

Average morning here...

Ohbyethen Wed 16-Apr-14 07:39:45

Ok so - why can I post pictures from my phone using chrome that won't post from my installed internet browser even though they are the same pictures that worked before. I don't understand what stopped working.

It's clearly bothering me more than I thought it was.

Now, if you'll excuse me I have a cunt puffin I must deploy on a certain AIBU thread.Brb.

Ohbyethen Wed 16-Apr-14 07:46:31


MaRezerection Wed 16-Apr-14 08:05:05

I forgot I'd namechanged.

Thankfully I remembered in time - I was about to kick up a fuss about my password not working again.

That violin is just wronger than a wrong thing in Wrongsville.

CuttedUpPear Wed 16-Apr-14 08:53:16

I would like to hang on to about 2 a day, just in case.

Sparkle can have the rest

<lady bountiful>

NaturalBaby Wed 16-Apr-14 08:57:40

Pantone kitties....MrsKwazii can have my picture quota.

I have one picture. I am all torn as to what to use it for. grin

MaRezerection Wed 16-Apr-14 10:53:31

Keep it for this evening Sparkling, you will then be able to do them all at once.


grin Yes, just because I get one back doesn't mean I should use it straight away does it? grin 6 is so few-it's makes me sad.

MaRezerection Wed 16-Apr-14 11:01:13

It's called delayed gratification, a very important skill for small children

You do without a small pleasure now, to get a greater pleasure later.

Or something like that hmm

I like that in their meanness MN is teaching me a life skill. grin

Nocomet Wed 16-Apr-14 11:05:19

Useful for the many cases when people want three impossible things before breakfast!

EasterSmegs Wed 16-Apr-14 11:19:50

I love otters

EasterSmegs Wed 16-Apr-14 11:20:50

Oh, and have been dying to use this on an appropriate, immigrant-bashing thread.

MaRezerection Wed 16-Apr-14 11:24:17

What a waste Smegs. I can think of a dozen threads where that would be appropriate.

Now, I wonder if I dare <wibble>

Is it still a personal attack if it's in picture form? grin

EasterSmegs Wed 16-Apr-14 11:32:25

Do it!

(I refuse to waste a picture on Ben Stiller in Starsky and Hutch. It was a shit movie).

EasterSmegs Wed 16-Apr-14 11:33:22

How can it be a personal attack? It's a rhetorical question!

EasterSmegs Wed 16-Apr-14 11:34:33

But if someone did feel attacked, I would simply post the otters holding hands pic. Oil on troubled waters, innit?

The 'You're shit' bit could be seen as a PA.

EasterSmegs Wed 16-Apr-14 11:37:59

Ah, but it starts with 'but maybe'.

What the hell. Shall I post it somewhere and we can find out?

Would you get away with this do you think?

EasterSmegs Wed 16-Apr-14 11:46:23


I suspect that one is less of a grey area tbugrin

No-straightfoward. Sparklingbrook not saying it-Mr Racoon is. wink grin

Plus I never swear on MN. grin

EasterSmegs Wed 16-Apr-14 12:33:18

That's a good point. Rick Racoon is surprisingly foul-mouthed for such a cute furry person, isn't he?

But then my pic is of Louis CK (American comedian) and that's a direct quote from one of his shows. He does this segment called Of Course... But Maybe. Hopefully that will work in my defense - but I bet the pic will still get deleted.

OhChristHasRisenFENTON Wed 16-Apr-14 13:05:01

Hmm, I read the title and assumed this was a thread for the likes of ME, but it's something else entirely.

I do like the pictures though, particularly the handholding otters.

MaRezerection Wed 16-Apr-14 14:35:23

That might be an attack, Sparkling tbugrin] Possibly. Depending on the context of course.

Have mnhq not seen this thread yet?

Fenton, of course you are special <soothes>

CreAmyEggMumsnet (MNHQ) Wed 16-Apr-14 14:42:04

Erm if anyone is the most special it's me, and I therefore demand all of your picture allowances to post hilar pictures of cats from the internet.

<Dashes off to propose this to Justine>.

MrsKwazii Wed 16-Apr-14 14:58:34

How does Mr Miyagi eat his Babybel?

Maryz Wed 16-Apr-14 15:01:33

But Amy <bats eyelids>

Sparkling deserves more pictures.

She neeeeeeeeeds them.

I still only have one. It makes me sad. sad

EasterSmegs Wed 16-Apr-14 15:15:05

Better make it count, Sparkling. Rob Lowe naked, maybe?

Not got one of those sadly Easter . Bit sick of naked James Martin too. <humph>

MrsKwazii Wed 16-Apr-14 15:27:47

Naked James Martin Sparkling <delicately gags>

MrsKwazii Wed 16-Apr-14 15:29:29

NaturalBaby has said I can have her quota Sparkling (cheers Natural!) I'll split them with you as long as there is ner a whiff of Mr Naked Martin.

MrsKwazii, click if you like but don't say I didn't warn you. wink

EasterSmegs Wed 16-Apr-14 15:35:37

<ladylike retch>

Oh, I wish I'd read that properly before I clicked, I don't know what I was expecting but it wasn't that!

(Psst, it's Smegs of the Scrambled variety, under my not-so-subtle Easter disguise)

EasterSmegs Wed 16-Apr-14 15:36:42

Oh crap. I thought I'd try and find something I liked to replace that image in my brain. I googled Jensen Ackles Naked.

Don't do it. For the love of God, DON'T DO IT.

Maryz Wed 16-Apr-14 15:38:41

I have had to stop googling various hot men naked.

Sadly too many photoshopped (at least I hope they are photoshopped) results have put me off.

Googling "X topless" is marginally better, but I might have to stop that soon as well.

MrsKwazii Wed 16-Apr-14 15:45:24

<Exercises self-control> You can't make me click Sparkling. I've never googled dragon butter either wink grin

IceBeing Wed 16-Apr-14 15:46:38

I haven't used any though I would gratuitously spunk one on this!

That's right - it could have been a gorgeous bloke or a baby or a fantastic picture of cupcakes <maybe just me huh> or funny or witty or anything at all. But it isn't.

Maryz Wed 16-Apr-14 15:46:51

Very wise MrsK


IceBeing Wed 16-Apr-14 15:47:10

take that!

Maryz Wed 16-Apr-14 15:50:54


I stupidly googled rob lowe naked. I have to clear my internet history again.

Did you find any maryz?

Sorry Smegsonly just dawned on me. blush

Maryz Wed 16-Apr-14 16:00:07

Um. Yes.

Well, parts of them were him and were quite yummy. Some of them weren't.

IceBeing Wed 16-Apr-14 16:01:53

ahhhhh rob lowe.....<Ill be in my bunk>

whitewitchofnarnia Wed 16-Apr-14 16:10:59

Serious question time, will I get banned for posting a picture of rob lowe in tight undies?

CuttedUpPear Wed 16-Apr-14 17:26:15

I should be doing this instead of MNetting

Maryz Wed 16-Apr-14 17:38:45

Don't be ridiculous, witch shock

Of course you wouldn't or if you are it will be worth it

I have had to use my last image to post a picture of Nana Mouskouri, but it was in a good cause.

whitewitchofnarnia Wed 16-Apr-14 18:08:21


MrsKwazii Wed 16-Apr-14 19:45:16

<queasy face>

Maryz Wed 16-Apr-14 20:36:18

Beautiful underpants tbugrin

EasterSmegs Wed 16-Apr-14 20:55:26


Is there a back view?
