I have seen this biscuit being used In many threads but I don't understand why you would give someone a biscuit? I'm probably being a dumbass though

It was in reference to the time Gordon Brown did a Web chat and was asked what his favourite biscuit was

I don't know i'm newish but i know they are given to threads people consider goady.

I thought it was to symbolise 'that takes the biscuit' when some one says something completely ridiculous/offensive/goady

twirlywoo69 Mon 02-May-16 19:51:08

I thought it was giving a flower

The biscuit looks like it has more detailing on it now.

TheFuckersBitingMe Mon 02-May-16 19:52:27

I always thought it was giving a biscuit for comfort, if an OP was having a bad day!

Can tell who among us eats a packet of digestives after a shitey day at work

I thought they were an arsehole emote

It's "calm down and have a biscuit"

Not to be confused with " bear anyone?"

I give people a biscuit on here when they are being goady fuckers or massive bellends.

It was supposed to mean no comment. Which is fairly pointless. If you have no comment to make - don't post. [boggle]

Why post to say that you have nothing to say? grin

But really it basically just means

a) I think you're a dick


b) I am a huge dick that's why this is the total contribution I have to make to this thread.

Or a variant on Arfarfanarf it means: "I'm not sure I believe a word you say. Even on the off chance it's at least partly true, I really don't understand why it would bother anyational person"

For example, were any proffered on the 'portable potty in Peter Jones fabric department' thread?

troubleinstore Mon 02-May-16 20:59:40

I thought it meant 'you doughnut' doh!

I also thought it was giving someone a biscuit for comfort. I did see it on offensive threads so I thought they needed the biscuit because people were going to be mean to the OP, but then saw posts where people are telling the OP to do one the give them a biscuit

I have only seen it in AIBU threads

It looks like a cherry rock cake to me


MardleBum Tue 03-May-16 06:04:20

I don't really fully understand why it happened, but it has become the standard passive aggressive response to a thread where people think that the OP is talking such utter bollocks that they don't even warrant and proper response.

MardleBum Tue 03-May-16 06:04:46

a proper response

TheSquashyHatOfMrGnosspelius Tue 03-May-16 06:37:15

To me it's, 'Have a biscuit, now fuck off!' It's a message to goady and asshole posters.

pictish Tue 03-May-16 06:42:22

I always thought it was a biscuit as in "that takes the...."

mynamesnotMa Tue 03-May-16 06:45:50

I thought it was it takes the biscuit. Personally would prefer that than flowers.

Sighing Tue 03-May-16 06:47:57

I thought 'that takes the biscuit'. But also 'shove this in your overactive face, you're embarrassing yourself'.

FruStefanOla Tue 03-May-16 06:53:23

Slightly at a tangent, but I think it's supposed to look like a Jammy Dodger.

twirlywoo69, there is a flowers smiley too flowers
