You know just to make sure no one comes along who might get the wrong end of the stick and start a row like?

WitchesTit Wed 17-Oct-12 16:38:44

If I knew what you meant im sure it'd be YANBU

MadgeHarvey Wed 17-Oct-12 16:42:38

What does it mean and what is it in reference to?

PurplePidjin Wed 17-Oct-12 16:42:46

Please No Wanking On The Table? confused

ThatBloodyKnid Wed 17-Oct-12 16:42:56

YANBU. grin

ThatBloodyKnid Wed 17-Oct-12 16:46:06

Actually, Please No Wanking On The Thread would be a good alternative meaning!

BobblyGusset's: "I just want a laugh; piss off miseries" as a thread hoverer thingy would be great.

We could change it to "fuck off miseries" if we fancied a change.

It means Po Not Welcome On The Thread. Tis instead of having to state that the thread is lighthearted. No one should ever ever have to explain themselves in such a demeaning way. If you don't geddit, don't post

SrirachaGhoul Wed 17-Oct-12 17:00:05

I find this thread highly offensive angry.



Pocketsocks Wed 17-Oct-12 17:17:46

Isn't that discriminating against teletubbies of a certain colour? Not that I think we'd understand a word if Po did decide to come onto Mumsnet

MrsKeithRichards Wed 17-Oct-12 17:24:59

What did po ever do wrong?

usualsuspect3 Wed 17-Oct-12 17:25:50

What if I'm in a PO mood.

WorraLiberty Wed 17-Oct-12 17:30:05

I've just eaten Kung Po chicken - it was very offended when I couldn't finish it all.

<< Pointless >>

Hullygully Wed 17-Oct-12 17:31:50

Some people have real problems you know.

I do, for one. Sainos haven't had my preferred brand of muesli for FIVE weeks.

usualsuspect3 Wed 17-Oct-12 17:34:45

You want to think yourself lucky you can afford muesli. some of us have to eat gruel for breakfast.

Hullygully Wed 17-Oct-12 17:36:13

Oh I can't afford it, I just like to look at it. It's so pretty with all its little nuts n flakes n stuff

Fiderer Wed 17-Oct-12 17:37:42

I ate a bag of it once. Not with contents, obv. Just the bag.

Happy days.

SaskiaRembrandtWasFramed Wed 17-Oct-12 17:37:50

Gruel?! We don't even get that - round here it's a shovelful of warm grit.

Trills Wed 17-Oct-12 17:39:01

YANBU at all, this use of the word "po" seems very childish and rather faddish.

However, YWBU to expect people to
a) understand
b) do as you ask
because you don't own the thread.

LordFlasheart Wed 17-Oct-12 17:39:23

I a HORRIFIED and OFFENDED by this frivolous acronym.

I demand an apology from you OP angry

Hullygully Wed 17-Oct-12 17:40:53


MrsKeithRichards Wed 17-Oct-12 17:44:00


SecretCervix Wed 17-Oct-12 17:45:12

at a guess I'm going to say PO stands for professionally offended/offendable??

Or something to that effect?

LordFlasheart Wed 17-Oct-12 17:47:37

We need a little ticking dial thing next to each thread. If its getting heated on the thread it turns red. Like the 'hide' symbol. This would ensure I dont get miss all the excitement.
