YANBU! Fight you for him grin

izzywhizzyletsgetbusy Sat 27-Aug-11 01:45:59

Unfuckingbelievable - so it ain't just you, Mum.

YABU Yossarian. This is not a fight club!

<<predicts carnage if another M Amis fan pokes heads out of woodwork>>

<<calculates chances of there being more than 2 shortsighted M Amis fans>>

<<offers reduced rate services as second, ref, umpire, arbitrator etc,>>

Grumpla Sat 27-Aug-11 10:03:12

YABU! YABU! YABU! Damned iPhone!

pineapple70 Sat 27-Aug-11 10:10:41

YA all BVVVVVVU. All of you! Really! He's a horrible sexist twat.

YossarianLives Sat 27-Aug-11 11:00:38

Grumpla I think your iPhone selected the correct answer first time around grin

Oh no no no, - that's just wrong.

ElectricSoftParade Sat 27-Aug-11 11:10:28

Well, I would grin

lovecat Sat 27-Aug-11 11:20:12

YABVU

And sick

And twisted

And just plain weird

Amis?? Seriously? Even if you could ignore the sexism and general hideousness of the man, you'd need to bring a bag...envy<---- that's green with pukery, not envy!

Mumtabulous Sat 27-Aug-11 11:52:45

Hahaha! So it's not just me! I didn't think opinions would be quite so polarised!! literally laughing out loud at your reaction lovecat. And I can assure you I was not pissed in the slightest when I posted last night, albeit after the hour of midnight ;-)
I'm up for the fight Yossarian! You know what, I think one of the main reasons for the attraction is the fact that he is the complete opposite of my newly-chucked XP :-D

Cammelia Sat 27-Aug-11 11:54:50

I've read all his books - does that count grin

Mumtabulous Sat 27-Aug-11 11:57:04

Well it depends...as XP would have said, "How did that make you feel" lol

YossarianLives Sat 27-Aug-11 12:01:40

Oh ok...I guess you can have him then, being single and all! I'll live my dream vicariously through you grin

Mumtabulous Sat 27-Aug-11 12:16:25

Lol, I'll let you know how it goes Yossarian!

reelingintheyears Sat 27-Aug-11 12:17:33

Not U but very odd.

Mumtabulous Sat 27-Aug-11 12:18:42

Well it's not like I'm deadly serious reeling!

DontGoCurly Sat 27-Aug-11 12:55:46

Googled him. YABU.

izzywhizzyletsgetbusy Sat 27-Aug-11 14:17:11

You chucked a charismatic, devastatingly handsome, genuinely talented, self-effacing author Mum? shock

Did you dump him because he hadn't won any critical acclaim?

pointydog Sat 27-Aug-11 14:28:44

I've got a soft spot for AMis. I quite like him. Don't fancy him. Too many teeth troubles.

Mumtabulous Sat 27-Aug-11 14:39:48

Haha, not that I agree with you of course, but you are hilarious izzy!
I've never really noticed the teeth, pointy. But I guess he doesn't smile that often...
