My DM:

They say we should be photgraphing butterflies as they're becoming distinct.


They say you shouldn't go swimming for at least 4 days after a meal.


They say Baracko Bama will be in office for at least 3 trems.

<<prepares to leave>>

They say of you pick a spot, you'll have a pigsfoot there in the morning.

<<leaves house of OldWife, never to return>>

Who the actual fruck are they and do they invade your life too?

Our local radio station does a lot of that.
Also constantly refers to "The People who run the Country"- that would be the Government then?
"The Man in Charge of the Country's Money"- err, the Chancellor...
We are all very stupid, clearly.
Had to stop listening, it was bad for my blood pressure!

They are Top Experts. Or just some made up twats.

I don't know, but I'm quite fond of Baracko Bama being in for 3 trems smile

Am I tiddly or is that the worst spelling of Barack Obama I have ever seen. Or is it an "in joke".

LineRunner Wed 03-Aug-11 22:48:36

Baracko is only allowed 2 trems.

It's like "is enough being done ...?".

I just long to hear the reply "yes, I think it is"! (Just once would do.)

Drunk, that's exactly how my mom mispronounciates it.

They make a fortune with that Line Dancing according to my MIL

<substitute LD with anything else you may wish ie Ebay etc>

I'd also like Brack O'Bama to get 3 trems Sarah but the way it's shaping he'll be lucky to achieve the proscribed 2 trems for Pres.

It's a hot night TakeMe - have another wine

<ponders whether enough can ever be done>

Enough will never be done.

They don't miss a trick, according to my Nan. This can be in reference to anything, from benefits to scuba diving.

Are butterflies becoming distinct?

fascinating. I always get them mixed up with moths, so glad there is is some kind of progression in progress to differentiate them.

DrPolidori Thu 04-Aug-11 01:09:21

And I luv baracko...he's hot!

They is who one discusses with rustic type whilst leaning on five-bar gate, chewing on stalk of grass and staring into middle distance.

"They says that it'll rain later"


"They reckons that that there Cheryl Cole baint goin' ta get back with Ashley now"


"They says that thar Ashley 'as an SAS chappie loik a minder and it cost 'im thousand quid a day, the soft shite"

continues ad nauseum

izzywhizzyletsgetbusy Thu 04-Aug-11 01:53:01

In northern New England they say 'ayup' to whatever you say to them.

<<nods sagely>>

ChaosTrulyReigns Thu 04-Aug-11 15:25:09

Apparently they say today that the summer holidays are feeling longer than they used to feel.


<<gets caller id>>

ShoutyHamster Thu 04-Aug-11 16:08:38

chaos great minds think alike! I was only having the same 'they' conversation with a friend earlier today. Who are They and why do we believe the majority of what they say ?!!

iscream Sun 07-Aug-11 02:32:16

Pigs foot?

Thumbwitch Sun 07-Aug-11 02:41:31

Chaos, I hope you're pished too!

butterflies becoming distinct? Classic!

"They" are Big Brother and the DM readers. I thought everyone knew that?

ModreB Sun 07-Aug-11 12:16:44

And those people who pronounce that you are "35% more likely to get" some horrible disease if you eat/drink/smoke/drive a car/ride a bike <insert anything here>

More likely than what. More likely than Stan from down the road, or more likely than a vegan scottish sheep farmer. Or more likely than someone who doesn't indulge in the said behaviour.

Sorry, ranting now.

NevermindtheNargles Sun 07-Aug-11 12:25:38

I've invented a liberal 'they' for these conversations. You can see it really throws my DH's aunt. Are 'they' contradicting themselves? Who am I referring to?

<Aunt's head explodes>

<Victory is declared>

<Bracko has 8 terms>
