* te noihydc* what the hell is this?

Gingernaut Wed 24-Jan-18 00:35:58

I think it started as a spelling mistake and the rest of the posters joined in with the nonsense.

TheBrilliantMistake Wed 24-Jan-18 00:37:42

I believe it's a parody of the many acronyms used on Mumsnet. No meaning, just being silly.

There was a post about it yesterday, everyone kept mentioning about this " te noihydc" I asked what it meant, I didn't get a answer. They all seemed to know what they were talking about, it made absolutely no sense to me hmmhmm

Andylion that is the post I'm on about. Still no further forward

PerspicaciaTick Wed 24-Jan-18 01:27:49

Isn't is just a typo in the OP that the other posters are laughing at and riffing on?

xXKXx Wed 24-Jan-18 01:29:42

I don't know, do you think so?

xXKXx, sorry, I assumed that mnetters had beguna to use te noihydc on other threads and you were wondering where it came from.

I posted on the thread that I thought people were being dicks. Apparently, I was alone in that opinion.

LarkDescending Wed 24-Jan-18 01:49:02

Yes it was a lighthearted riff on a typo (as PanPanPanPing explained for the benefit of those confused, on about page 10 of the thread),

Lweji Wed 24-Jan-18 08:45:59

This is why you need to RTFT. The OP came back to explain.

What happened on that thread is the result of an old MN habit with funny mistakes. We take them very seriously.

MadMags Wed 24-Jan-18 09:49:37

Why are you starting another thread about it? It was explained, numerous times, on the original thread.

TheBadgersMadeMeDoIt Wed 24-Jan-18 11:17:42

It's the funniest thread I've seen in ages. Proper, tears of laughter funny... if you take it in the right spirit.

Nobody was being a dick. Nobody was being mean. It wasn't even teasing the OP. It was just a meaningless typo that turned into a game of "who can come up with the funniest, most baffling comment about the non-existent activity called ^te noihydc^". With extra points for working in Mumsnet acronyms and catchphrases.

Does that answer your question?

Mxyzptlk Wed 24-Jan-18 16:13:41

Non-existent? hmm

PanPanPanPing Wed 24-Jan-18 16:21:42

That thread was a trip down MN 'nostalgia street'. It was brilliantly funny and reminded me of the days when MN had loads of amusing threads similar to that.

As PPs have said, nobody was having a direct pop at the OP - they just latched onto her unfinished OP with her nonsensical wording and ran with it.

Lweji Wed 24-Jan-18 16:29:16

Non-existent? hmm

Exactly. The non-believers need to be educated.

PanPanPanPing Wed 24-Jan-18 16:39:12

Presumably Mxyzptlk is not a participant, Lweji?

We can't force non-believers to join, nor can we publicly educate them. After all, we are not a cult but just a secret society of te noihydcers only recognised by the various secret signals between members.

BeautyQueenFromMars Wed 24-Jan-18 16:45:57

That thread is hilarious! Cheered me right up grin

averylongtimeago Wed 24-Jan-18 16:48:48

Loved that thread!
Any way, this is a taat so it will vanish soon

PanPanPanPing Wed 24-Jan-18 17:30:48

No, it's not really a TAAT. Well, sort of. But the original thread is still there. Nor will it be deleted.

It's all harmless. No trolling. No nastiness. Nothing horrible at all. Just pure gold good old MN fun!

TheBadgersMadeMeDoIt Wed 24-Jan-18 19:53:12

Considering starting a local te noihydc society. It would be amusing to place a cryptic ad in the local rag and see if anyone turns up.

strugglingtodomybest Wed 24-Jan-18 19:57:34

I loved that thread, proper old style mumsnet fun.
