Like that?

Does anyone know why they've chosen flowers over a catsbum mouth?

Apart from the fact that the biscuit looks a bit like a cats arse, but they could get over that by using a black cat with a white choc starfish?

yanbu. I thought the flower was a good way of telling someone to f off back to hunnyville.

Or do you mean something like:




I can see that happening.

the biscuit does not look like my cat's arse. Does your cat have jaundice and haemmeroids zigzag

but look it's so pretty

I'm a bit ashamed of flowers actually, the media will think MN is going soft.

And then where will we be?

Not on Matthew Wright that's for sure.

Actually, I like the way that the flowers clash with the angry face. perhaps I am being won over.

Ok people, go to Active threads, then the first thread is about the new emoticon, it's about thanking some lovely mnetters especially those contributing to the blankets nut also a chance to thank anyone who has helped you personally and explain why, kind of a nomination thingy. smile

My cat has asked me not to discuss her medical history on a public internet forum Samsung.

It can be used I suppose like the Bonsoir Anna passive aggressive smiley.

In that you post something very cutting but try and sweeten the blow with a smiley.

'perhaps you should consider a hobby, or perhaps a job' smile

And what are the flowers? I mean what type? Where's the botanical accuracy?
They really didn't think this through, did they? Tsk.

I felt very bad earlier - I posted somethinh along the lines of 'what is this SHIT NOW' and a very kind MNer came on and posted a link to the reasoning behind it.

I asked mnhq to delete the thread so I didn't look like a complete arsewipe.

I really don't like all the daft emoticons though.

Is that bastard bear still here?

Ok - have taken stock of the explanatory thread and feel like a complete and utter heel now.
