AIBU to ask about this?

I see this comment on here all the time! Someone will post on an (often bizarre) thread and say "hello Paul, is that you?" Ok maybe it's not Paul but you get the gist!

What is this about?

Sorry if it's really obvious!

I'm on MN all the time and I haven't seen this once. Am I missing something?

If someone posts something that sounds like it might be said by Jeremy Corbyn for example, some clever dick person pipes up with "is that you Jeremy?"

No, it's me, Maureen. Is Trev around?

I once mistook Janet for Sharon.

Is it me you're looking for???

Op I think the Brian thing is from an old thread about a bloke called Brian offering a Yoni massage , so any new thread that mentions anything along those lines gets the response 'Is that you Brian?'

Or something along those lines anyway .

Usual I thought you'd outed me then !

UCM had an epic name change fail on a thread about something embarrassing ( maybe thrush can't remember) it's in classics

MissMellowMellons Fri 26-Aug-16 23:06:47

I really don't have a clue what this thread is about. confused

DramaInPyjamas Fri 26-Aug-16 23:06:49

Brian was a yoni massager
Sharon's husband danced like a t-rex
Jeff was the mumsnet hacker

(I think)

You are Sheila from down t'road and I claim my £5.

nancy75 Fri 26-Aug-16 23:07:49

Sharon's husband shopped like a T. rex in Asda I believe

Cinderbloom Fri 26-Aug-16 23:08:36

Yes, the spray-painted pigeon thread. His mates would be all, "Paul? Is that you?"

MisMellow these are all references to old threads - many are in classics
