DS is in the school choir and wants to audition for the church choir. His father however says he can't possibly do so as he will develop a side mouth. AIBU in saying this should be DS's choice as 11 years old?

What is a side mouth please?

At 11 he should be able to make the decision for himself. However you do have to consider practicalities i.e how much time it will take up with regards to other family activities.

Is it the mouth that say, Frank Sidebottom had?

carpwidow Mon 22-Aug-11 23:39:38

Well I googled "sidemouth" and that's what came up! Don't blame me ;)

BimboNo5 Mon 22-Aug-11 23:39:49

I realise now ive probably really shown my age blush

FabbyChic Mon 22-Aug-11 23:39:57

Side mouth singing is where they sing out of the side of their mouth, there are three famous singing artists who actually sing like that.

Say it like it is, AF, don't hold back grin

AF is right though, he is a twat. Why does he get the final decision?

carpwidow Mon 22-Aug-11 23:40:39

Oh... like Elvis! grin

reelingintheyears Mon 22-Aug-11 23:40:49

carpwidow.....you did a better one of fish the other night.

Can't remember which thread though.

AnyFucker Mon 22-Aug-11 23:41:17

oh, that didn't work, sorry

just look below the message box for the instructions as to how to post links, since I am incapable of explaining it

pigletmania Mon 22-Aug-11 23:42:20

Ignore, your ex op, if your ds wants to do it let him. A side mouth what a load of rubbish. I remember singing in the church choir and you had to open your whole mouth to sing and properly from your abdomen.

carpwidow Mon 22-Aug-11 23:42:22

I don't bloody know!! I followed the instructions, put all the [[ in the right places... still didn't work. Can't you see it?

carpwidow Mon 22-Aug-11 23:42:53

It's a shame, cos that is a proppa proppa side mouth!

pigletmania Mon 22-Aug-11 23:43:18

sorry not your ex, my mistake.

reelingintheyears Mon 22-Aug-11 23:44:41

No carpy...The fucking fish...

Trout pout, side on.

You offered to snog someone.
