Other than troll hunting and personal abuse etc.

eg: "don't you have anything better to worry about?"

Yes of course I fucking do. Just because I posted something doesn't mean it is the only cunting thing I care about!

Give me a few years and, never mind being hip, I'll need a new one. grin

PickledInAPearTree Thu 28-Mar-13 21:25:07

What I'm not hip anymore?

Fucks sake.

cestlesautres Thu 28-Mar-13 21:03:16

It was fun, wasn't it? Brings a whole new meaning to "facepalm".

Sneezin, I see ya dude.

YouTheCat Thu 28-Mar-13 20:57:21

Cestlesautres, I think I used my nose a bit too. grin

Dude, no. just no. <shakes head>

It makes me feel like the Fonz, if I say dude. I feel laconic and sophisticated.

TheBigJessie Thu 28-Mar-13 18:54:38


Dude, YABU works so well.

Dude, can't you see that?

cestlesautres Thu 28-Mar-13 18:51:57

Hey, guys, cool it, no?

SneezingwakestheJesus Thu 28-Mar-13 18:49:16

I find it a million more times annoying when someone says it to someone who has made it clear they are female as well. I'm all for equality but it makes me want to murder. <takes this too seriously>

Actually, I’m not a dude;
I’m a Blackadder nerd and an English one too;
And I felt a challenge to ye scottishmummy, stirring in ma sporran.

cestlesautres Thu 28-Mar-13 18:47:05

Your head is a bit pointier, though, Cat.

cestlesautres Thu 28-Mar-13 18:46:08

Interesting. When I sit on my hands, I have nearly the same original thought as YouTheCat.

cestlesautres Thu 28-Mar-13 18:44:45

<sits on hands>


scottishmummy Thu 28-Mar-13 18:43:44

Nope,if your a mammie saying dude or you posting on mn you're not a dude
And proclaiming self to be dude,well that's even more cringey
Up there with Folk who say im funny me.inevitably they are not

TheBigJessie Thu 28-Mar-13 18:35:32

Dude, we're just being ironic/patronising/[insert adjective]. Deal with it, 'kay!

limitedperiodonly Thu 28-Mar-13 18:35:04

Well, I'm a dude and I post here
D'ye want to do battle scottishmummy?
Barebreasted in the auld Highland fashion?

scottishmummy Thu 28-Mar-13 18:31:24

If you're on mn you're most certainly not a dude,nor is anyone else
Anyone remotely hip,and from dudeland isn't posting on mn,fact
Dudes are achingly cool elsewhere,unlike try too hard mammies giving it yo-yo dude

WorraLiberty Thu 28-Mar-13 18:21:33

Can we please outlaw people saying "dude"? I feel like I'm reading posts by my teenage brother.

Oh god yes I cringe when I read/hear that from any adult.

It's so 'try hard teenager' and really shouldn't be said by anyone over the age of 15.

cestlesautres Thu 28-Mar-13 18:17:03

Could we vote on all of these? Have a dinky questionnaire?

scottishmummy Thu 28-Mar-13 18:12:15

Dude makes me think of past it mammies thinking they are hipsters
Yea dude,go do the groceries and school,run and stop pretending to be too cool for skool

OhChristHasRisenFENTON Thu 28-Mar-13 18:04:13

Oh, but I rather like a well placed 'dude' - let it stay.
