Would love to find mine again - it was about Liam Gallagher and I'm pretty sure it was in a thread about the Ariana Grande Manchester concert. A poster said he has been wearing that anorak since 1993 and he won't feel the benefit.

Can't really say why I love it so much but it still makes me laugh out loud and we often quote it as a family, like when teen ds wears his coat at the dinner table.

Just me then grin

There was a thread a while ago about parenting and one poster said she approached motherhood as if it was one mass catering challenging. Definitely struck a chord with me.

Snapped and farted is still up there

Beaver of steel and rough as a badger’s arse still make me grin.

I can't remember word for word but on a 'what kids eat' type thread someone said if you're giving your child fruit you may as well just give them a bag of haribo. Summed up MN nicely for me.

"Fuck off you spud cunt" or something like that. I can't recall.

Something along the lines of

we call MIL dementor because she sucks happiness out of every occasion

I AM CANADIAN! It was the most marvellous self-pwn

IToldYouIWasFreaky Sun 07-Apr-19 16:20:56

Oop! *self-own ever!

Witchofzog Sun 07-Apr-19 16:21:42

Icklboo beat me to it. "Your Minge" is THE best but I do have another soft spot for "Fuck off then you spud cunt" 😂

Mrsjayy Sun 07-Apr-19 16:22:09

I would rather put shite in my hands and clap... not even sure what the thread was about but it made me grin

boringlyboring Sun 07-Apr-19 16:22:52

Can’t remember the exact wording but:

Shove an onion up his arse while I whip him with a leek

IncrediblySadToo Sun 07-Apr-19 16:23:20

JeSuisPrest. You beat me to it! All time favourite line...


...followed very closely by


Ah for the good old days on MN. How I morn them.

Snapped and farted is mine. The randomness had me crying with laughter

FenellaMaxwell Sun 07-Apr-19 16:24:01

On the OXO tower thread where the OP is wondering what to wear, and someone chips in with “a diamanté butt plug and a pained expression” grin

Furball Sun 07-Apr-19 16:25:14

I still chuckle now at the oxo tower thread

Tealtights Sun 07-Apr-19 16:26:04

The poster this week who called parents wanting sex on holiday oversexed baboons!

IvanaPee Sun 07-Apr-19 16:26:34

There was a thread about an OP’s partner who insisted on sitting around bollock naked.

Someone said something about his penis being like an aardvark resting against his thigh. That was hilarious!

I snapped and farted was made extra brilliant by people thinking it was a typo and OP coming back to say “I have IBS.”

There have been some truly brilliant one-liners.

The worst ever was “are you on glue?” Because of the bizarre way people responded like it was the funniest, most original thing ever. Baffled me then, baffles me now.

Came on to say I AM CANADIAN. Is SGM still on here?

polarpig Sun 07-Apr-19 16:27:28

i hope his next poo is a hedgehog.
