To be a bit confused about Mumsnet Classics?

A lot of threads have gone into Classics, but really that's because people get swept away with it. At the time. The thread may have been funny and those posting had a day or so of laughing, but why does it need to be in Classics?

Does anyone ever look in Classics? Apart from maybe to find the unfunny Pom Bear thread? confused

I've had at least one thread in the Round-up that didn't make it into Classics.

I send people there to see the best of MN - threads like Miguel Tuna, the baby who needed milk, the kitchen getting cleaned. The wedding planner baby shower thread is worthy of televising and while Chaos's toaster thread is one of my favourite ever I do think you had to be there.

Mumsnet the Musical definitely deserved to make it into Classics grin.

Cutted up Pear was the one which always sits in my mind.

Cutted Up Pear is the only one that is really great IMO. The other ones like Yoni and pomme bears are "you had to be there" threads.

Did MitchyInge's pink horse make classics?

zing there are a few threads started by me in classics (down to other mnetters for the funnies though) the one MNHQ checked on involved discussing sex toys with Ds blush, I'll do a linky when I'm home and can search it properly.

Were you the 'weasels thread' Honey?
I enjoyed that one, and have started asking people how big they are.
Everybody thinks they're the size of ferrets.

aaah weasels. so cute.

slightly larger than a mouse

happy days

Yes, that was me. Weasels still keep on surprising me.

Was 'I've shat on my skirt' the "if I move I'll poo" and "I'm so sorry Alan" thread? If it is that was one of the only threads that genuinely did make me cry with laughter. Proper, out loud belly laughs.

The 'least professional moments' thread is also one of my favourites.

I do agree though that for most of the funny ones you need to be there at the time.

I occasionally look in classics when I don't fancy interacting with anyone and need a good laugh. The Zombie Plan thread was the funniest thing I've ever read on here.

I thought the Yoni Master from Hull was pretty good, especially when everyone name changed. Was that made a classic? And please please, tell me what the "rivers of sweet corn" reference is.....
