Eh?

I think it's a moral panic about the decline of the English language. It just hasn't been expressed, which is slightly ironic.

The thread title needs a capital letter.

Bing?

Hatespiders Wed 28-Jan-15 19:49:04

I could only find on Google the CBeebies 'Bing Thing Meets The Toilet Train', which can't surely be what the op is referring to?

Or is she/he ancient and is talking about Bing Crosby?

YABU. Leave Bing alone! we love him in this house

Bing is great.

He doesn't speak the Queen's English because he's a preschool aged bunny, and he talks like a preschooler.

usualsuspect333 Wed 28-Jan-15 19:56:11

Ah, is OP complaining about a bunny who doesn't talk proper?

CanISayOfHerFace Wed 28-Jan-15 20:00:18

I love Bing and the way he speaks but hearing Flop's voice come out of Thomas Cromwell is really ruining Wolf Hall for me.

ithoughtofitfirst Wed 28-Jan-15 20:00:19

Could he be any more grammatically incorrect??

I LOVE FLOP THO.

I like Bing, but the consistently bad grammar and mispronunciations really grate. I find myself correcting him in the hope DD doesn't learn from him.

howtodrainyourflagon Wed 28-Jan-15 20:45:52

Omg flop is in wolf hall? That's seriously messing with my head. Are Pando and Sula too?

DoraGora Wed 28-Jan-15 20:46:55

Pre-school bunnies? I bow to the superior knowledge of the respondent who said heh?

crappyday Wed 28-Jan-15 20:47:59

We love bing. YABU

Our DD's grammar went to pot when her Bing obsession peaked. She seems to be back on track no that he's not her favourite anymore thank fuck for that

Discopanda Wed 28-Jan-15 20:49:08

I don't understand why they say "I-e-chi" instead of "bless you" when someone sneezes.

CupidStuntSurvivor Wed 28-Jan-15 20:55:02

I imagine Bing's grammar will vastly improve once his character is portrayed as being older than 3.

MiaowTheCat Wed 28-Jan-15 21:06:08

Flop has the status of a god in this house with two Bing-mad toddlers. Hasn't had any detrimental effect on DD1's grammar (DD2's only just beginning to talk now). We love Bing.

Discopanda Wed 28-Jan-15 21:22:10

DD absolutely loves Bing, so far her grammar hasn't been negatively affected but it does grate on me a bit

Fairylea Wed 28-Jan-15 21:23:34

No no no no. You leave Bing alone. He is amazing.

BikketBikketBikket Wed 28-Jan-15 21:28:30

DGD adores Bing - me, not so much...
But oh how I agree with CanISayOfHerFace that Flop's voice coming from Thomas Cromwell is just weeiiiird...!!! shock

Mammabear31 Wed 28-Jan-15 21:35:09

But why does Pando wear pants?! That's MY question....

DS loves Bing, but calls him "Bing Bing". And yes, the "I-ee-chi" was incredibly annoying today.
