To not understand the obsession, amongst grown adults, with fucking Minions?

My FB news feed.constantly gets clogged up with 'likes' and 'shares' of cheesy quotes from the 'Minions Quotes' page (what have they even got to do with Minions apart from the fact there is one standing next to the words?), videos of 'A Minion kiss, just for you' etc, and pictures of Minions knitted hats, Minions cakes, Minions high heeled stilettos, Minions glittery shit wine glasses, the list goes on.

I have 'half' watched Despicable Me, it was alright. Am I missing something here or am I really just friends with a bunch of infantilised twats?

The latter grin

Minions are quite funny, but your friends seem slightly obsessed

Me neither.

I prefer the Rabbids.

Nope, not unreasonable. I love Despicable Me, I think it's a really sweet film, but the Minions craze bemuses me too. It will only get worse now though as the new film has just opened. Or maybe people will get sick of them through over exposure and it'll go away - fingers crossed!

If you click on the arrow on the right of the post you can set it to not see any more posts from Minions Quotes.

You're quite right discreetly kicks Disney merchandise under the sofa

I totally agree but no doubt we'll be told we are miserable bastards!
There was a terrible meme on fathers day going around facebook showing a black and white picture of a minion looking sad, alongside a quote about remembering all the fathers looking down from Heaven. So inappropriate!!

The films are great and me and the kids are looking forward to the new one.

They're just the latest meme characters on Facebook. Them and the Frozen girls for anything sisterly.

And Mrs Brown's Boys for anything 'funny' containing the f-word.

It'll move on soon enough.

Don't have a cow, man.

Minions are amazing, and one of the funniest creations in a kids film that I've ever seen.

However, even I really hate those fucking tacky minion "memes". They add a totally unnecessary element of cheese

Yes! I can just about take the 'funny' memes, but when I see serious or sad ones I'm just like WTF, its a MINION!

Even worse are the ones from Dawn French Fan Club that people share.

Nothing to do with Dawn French (but trading on her name), not her type of humour, and not bloody funny!

nocutsnobuttsnococonuts Fri 26-Jun-15 19:58:18

me and my girls love minions. cant wait to go and see the new film!

I have a minion tshirt and a minion on my keys, my ring tone used to be a phrase from the film. They just make me laugh and guaranteed to make me smile even on a bad day grin however the endless quotes on facebook annoy me too!

im mid twenties if that helps . im also obsessed with Disney and superheroes so I guess I'm a bit childish! !

TheSnowFairy Fri 26-Jun-15 19:58:48

My son's name is one of the main Minion characters - he's 10 though so not named after them! Hoping the film will be kind to all of his name wink

NoStannisNo Fri 26-Jun-15 19:59:26

Yeah I always thought those.Dawn French ones couldn't actually be her - they are very....Netmums.

Buttom!

< falls about laughing>

What's a minion?

TendonQueen Fri 26-Jun-15 20:10:32

Minion stilettos? Really? Can you link? I don't mind them as kids' film characters but that in particular seems mad.

YY what do minions have to do with Father's Day?!

Euphemia Fri 26-Jun-15 20:16:59

They are funny! DD (12) and I were at the first showing of the movie this morning - it was great!

Yogasuz Fri 26-Jun-15 20:35:50

cooger you beat me, I was just thinking that!

NoStannisNo Fri 26-Jun-15 20:57:08

Can't link the shoes as someone just 'liked' the picture so it flitted in and out of my life. But I just googled Minions high heels

Pure elegance.

This Minion shite makes me want to claw my own eyeballs out. I instantly judge anyone sharing these effing memes on my Facebook.

PunkrockerGirl Sat 27-Jun-15 07:20:36

What jaded said. I too judge anyone posting this shite on fb.
