That's not a MN emoji, is it?

Hint : look in Radio Addicts.

iknowimcoming Sun 04-Sep-16 16:48:32

Yes it is on iPad, so I'm not the only one then? .........

It is. It was created for the Archers threads (radio addicts) but I can't remember the exact reason why!

😳 archers

Is it a pub sign? Not sure I've ever seen one that looks like that though

Mumsnet started in 2000, according to Wiki.

The Bull pub from the Archers isn't it?

iknowimcoming Sun 04-Sep-16 16:55:06

Blimey ok so I might've exaggerated a bit but dd is nearly 17 (3 weeks) and it was whilst I was pg with her so at least 17.5 years. Anyway, it's to do with the archers but what is it? confused

Here's the answer.

(But scroll back to the start of that thread obvs.)

I've always thought it looks like a Nazi flag.

It's the pub sign from Ambridge, as many others have said. The pub is called The Bull. There's always a thread going in Radio Addicts for us sad obsessives to diss discuss The Archers. It will likely be very active this coming week because of the trial.

iknowimcoming Sun 04-Sep-16 17:06:43

Aaaaaaah! Thanks ever so, I shall sleep soundly tonight - still think it looks like a lobster scale grin

Nanny0gg Sun 04-Sep-16 17:10:10

Why are there different emojis on different devices?

<misses point>

TopazRocks Sun 04-Sep-16 17:11:08

What trial, Gasp? Has something baaad happened in darkest Borsetshire?wink

iknowimcoming Sun 04-Sep-16 17:13:45

Nanny - whilst looking at the bull thread someone commented about another new one that looked like a red dinosaur - I've never seen that one before either! MN still offers mystery at every turn .......

StrattersHasACunningPlan Sun 04-Sep-16 17:34:21

That's the Welsh dragon, isn't it?

Chopstick17 Sun 04-Sep-16 17:46:12

MN 20 yrs old??? I didn't know that!

CoconutAndVanilla Sun 04-Sep-16 17:47:17

Wow I didn't know this site was that old, I'm here from Netmums, since coming on here I don't ever see myself going back smile

Gasp0deTheW0nderD0g Sun 04-Sep-16 17:50:11

Topaz my dear, you are trying to entice me into making a show of myself in front of these good non-listeners, but I am up to your tricks.

However, if anybody wants an exhaustive account of what has been going on, such as I just inflicted on my mother (poor woman), do please just ask. I can bore for Britain on the subject of The Archers. grin

cpthen Sun 04-Sep-16 17:52:40

Me too. I have just tried to explain it to our Spanish AuPair hmm

FeckinCrutches Sun 04-Sep-16 17:53:44

It was only founded in 2000 grin
