And what it would be like if it did?

Who is Dave Gorman?
Why would he look for poems on MN?
Does he write poems?
Lots of MNers do. There were some good ones recently about vulvas.

I don't think so, he tends to look at comments under news articles (DM especially)

I shall try - from the pyjama thread....

God it's so tacky. My children would be mortified if I rocked up in pyjamas.
Just laziness - what example are they showing their kids?
It's an attitude, not a lifestyle. It's ghastly. There is no excuse
Yeah! Have a wash and get dressed fgs!

Wear what the hell you like, I say
It's not up to the school to tell parents what to wear
Really cannot be arsed to care about what others wear
People used to do it where I lived in Glasgow, I've never seen it here in London.

Timely, he is a comedian, very funny and very clever and his "found poems" where he takes comments from the internet, as suffolk said, from under news articles and makes a poem from it. Like this one

TheoriginalLEM Wed 27-Jan-16 10:09:58

Suffolk - yes, its a bit lazy really isn't it - the DM make it so easy for him!

Well, he might start using mumsnet as a source if he googles his name and finds this.

Might be too much material though? He could get sucked into the threads and never resurface: Haunting the classics forum with a plaintive whispered plea to help him escape the horrors of pombears et al.

TheoriginalLEM Wed 27-Jan-16 10:16:59

Fidelia - grin

I think he would be too scared!!

Pointlessfan Wed 27-Jan-16 10:18:21

I wondered if he might discover mn now he's a father, I think he'd have a field day! I love DG!

TheoriginalLEM Wed 27-Jan-16 10:29:50

Maybe MNHQ should invite him for a webchat....

I love his found poems smile

AdriftOnMemoryBliss Wed 27-Jan-16 10:36:24

his found poems are brilliant.

Dh & I are huge fans, i'm normally dying of laughter by the end of them.

TooMuchOfEverything Wed 27-Jan-16 10:38:00

I love Dave Gorman. DS loves him too, sometimes I let him stay up far too late and watch.

His Found Poems are brilliant and he so could use MN as a source.

LEMs example about the pyjamas is spot on.

He often mentions his DW in performances and she sounds like she could be a Mumsnetter.

Darvany Wed 27-Jan-16 10:51:14

I'm going to send him some of GabbyLoggon's posts.

lostInTheWash Wed 27-Jan-16 10:59:22

He has.

Pretty sure the sat nav one was a thread from here. The one about the children party and asking for specific presents - where no real child would ask for a desk was from a thread on here.

There was a thread I was on about celebrities and father of the year award - and it got silly and I put forward some silly comments on bananas under another name - only be sat watching TV to see a found poem along those line with my banana comments in smile.

I think the american flag discussion was from a thread on here too - though that wasn't a found poem.

I really like Modern Life is goodish.

I could hear the Billroth String Quartet as I read your found poem there OP.

Are you wearing a checked shirt today?

TheoriginalLEM Wed 27-Jan-16 12:41:04

maybe some of you could "find" a poem.?

if you're reading Dave, i love you

QuietWhenReading Wed 27-Jan-16 12:46:48

I am absolutely sure that Mrs Gorman is a Mumsnetter, she sounds like a smart, funny woman, she'll fit right in.


FlopIsMyParentingGuru Wed 27-Jan-16 12:49:07

I love the found poems. Absolutely inspired.
