There are lols and huns creeping in.

And some of you aren't fucking swearing enough!

scottishmummy Fri 18-Jan-13 18:14:05

I think if you say bleddy instead of bloody you can't take any stance on mn syntax
bleddy is that that bloody is too coarse?so use the cutsey wutsey made up alternative
next all the lufflys will turn up going on about vairy nice hams

That's the other problem with MN at the moment. You can't have a good friendly rant sometimes.

Clipped I think you meant 'that' and pedants, not pendants <helpful> <friendly>.

I PSMS (pissed myself sneezing) this morning.

Twas like doorstep incontinence except I was on the way to the loo (downstairs) and felt a sneeze coming on halfway down.

Is that TMI?

Don't dish it if you can't take it grin

x posted with Tweasels and loads of others.

That'll teach me to stop MN'ing in order to do some work.

BlackBagBorderBinLiner Fri 18-Jan-13 18:19:21

Why can't I find the 'Like' button? How am I going to show the world I LOL, PMSL or cured cancer.

MardyBraWouldDoEddieRedmayne Fri 18-Jan-13 18:19:46

<pointedly ignoring wiggles remarks about the lovely Eddie>

MardyBraWouldDoEddieRedmayne Fri 18-Jan-13 18:23:55

Actually can I add an important point to my OP?

AIBU to think that some posters should lighten up and develop a sense of fun and irony?

TapselteerieO Fri 18-Jan-13 18:29:30

Surely it is a shower of cunts.

Tweasels Fri 18-Jan-13 18:29:43

I hate irony

Ah no, I mean ironing lol

TheVermiciousKnid Fri 18-Jan-13 19:04:55

Of course standards are fucking slipping - have you seen how icy it is out there!? Hun. Lol. Ugh.


DoodlesNoodles Fri 18-Jan-13 19:05:46

lol , hun and swearing

thx huns

My friend told me extraneous exclamation marks are the jazz hands of the written word.

I quite like an ironic lol, and I love a well placed soz. Can't imagine anyone over the age of 17 uses them in a non-ironic way.

I rarely actually lol at something written. I normally just blow the air out of my nose with a bit more force.

wigglesrock Fri 18-Jan-13 19:11:01

I apologise - it was below the belt [phnar phnar]

MadBusLady Fri 18-Jan-13 19:13:36

Don't look at me, I even fucking swear in Baby Names.

Why IS it that some people take Baby Names UNBEARABLY personally, by the way?

MardyBraWouldDoEddieRedmayne Fri 18-Jan-13 19:13:41

I like jazz hands.
I feel that multiple exclamation marks are more an indicator of someone who would have a "Baby on Board" (or worse "Powered by Fairy Dust") sign in their car.

MadBusLady Fri 18-Jan-13 19:15:53

Didn't we have it out about bleddy and fecking though and they're a bit accent related? "Fecking" is certainly taken to mean exactly the same as fucking IME.

SpicyPear Fri 18-Jan-13 19:17:13
