AIBU to think that it's ok to post threads for fun, even if occasionally they might not be 100% truthful?

No chatting allowed.

Earnest, Judgy advice only here I am afraid.

Crack a smile and you are out.

Joyful aint it?

I'm baffled why anyone would report things that are clearly posted as a laugh. But that's because I am not a joyless arse.

You're not sat next to someone on a bus, 'loud parenting' a disabled dog in a pushchair, wearing a nappy, are you?

I am right behind you Maryz.

I am sick to death of the joylessness here, the way people get jumped on when they ask reasonable questions and the lack of fucking fun.

we need a serious debate about this

joke threads are NOT trolling

when did the rules ban jokes?

EggsitPursuedByAChocolateBunny Wed 27-Mar-13 15:38:33

How can you be a troll when using your usual name? confused

I have to confess to be being baffled by this. One of the great joys of MN is (was?) the level of humour and general silliness. And posters who have the intelligence to spot a joke thread. Why would someone report something so clearly a joke as the spoon thread?

One of the best early ones was someone posting that a poor person had touched their child. It was hilarious.

And I'm sure there was one about needing to phone the gardener to get a leaf out of the swimming pool which was also wonderful.

LadyBeagleEyes Wed 27-Mar-13 15:40:53

I dunno, spoons can be a very sensitive subject for some people.
Triggering for many, you know.
I thought your thread was very ill thought out Hully.wink

Hullygully Wed 27-Mar-13 15:41:03


and no name change so clearly a lark

There would be no Classics if it was all about serious, joyless stuff.

I have never moaned once about threads that are as dull as fuck

ChippingInIsEggceptional Wed 27-Mar-13 15:42:31

People are bloody stupid - that's why sad

Those threads don't float my boat - it's just not my sense of humour BUT I totally accept that others have a lot of fun on them and good on you all I say! It was as clear as plate glass it was a joke, how fucking stupid do you have to be not to see that??

What new recruit told you off Hully?

EggsitPursuedByAChocolateBunny Wed 27-Mar-13 15:57:01

And what exactly was there to report? But I do speak as someone who has never reported anything.

Live and let live.

FarleyD Wed 27-Mar-13 16:15:23

Huh? Spoon thread was reported? Why? I was enjoying myself on that. I bet it was that Roger that turned us in.

FarleyD Wed 27-Mar-13 16:16:59

Oops, sorry Roger, I see spoon thread is still there.

YouTheCat Wed 27-Mar-13 16:17:53

Who the hell reported the spoon thread?

I miss the joke threads. They were just so much fun.

I would love to see the return of the silly thread.

But, I understand that they can't really, because of the number of arseholes around, who start the shitty threads.

Because of them, we've lost something that was a real laugh.

I think we should find them and kill them.
