Just that really. Either a totally off topic question, a hilarious response or just something that made you laugh.

For me it was someone who had posted about her office chair frequently appearing damp and smelling of pee and someone just responded “woah we’re halfway there”.

Someone once said ‘pressing f5 like a fucking seal’ and it’s stuck with me for years and I sometimes giggle. If I remember correctly it was an insult to someone lol

That’s actually just made me laugh out loud.

‘Balonz is a Sussex name’ still cracks me up after all these years. grin

“Is that you UCM.?”
Very very vintage

There was a post where the OP was complaining her husband being a lazy bastard, with one of the posters recommending the OP hide under the bed and grab his ankles to teach him a lesson grin
Even now I laugh over it.

Beaten to the post with “UCM is that you?”

Still makes me laugh.

Carolduckingbaskin Sun 03-May-20 11:13:04

@LaurieMarlow ah Balonz... you just don’t get that standard of wind up anymore wink

The poster who asked a question about a certain pushchair, then responded to herself years down the line with a recommendation; and the following poster who saiid "you do know you've answered your own post, right?" 🤣

@Lou1isa that should be advice on every cocklodger thread going forward.

Why don't you stop being such a huge cunt? I reckon your mother should have thought twice before having you, because you've turned out to be a right gobshite.

Just the other day on a heated thread about coronavirus and nurseries.

Made me snort grin

Remember when that poster asked what to do with mangoes and someone replied 'juggle them' and the OP had a hissy fit?

Recent ish post about a boyfriend with a fishy smell. One suggestion was to have a good inspection of his orifices. One response to that was to try and look for a medical reason first before examining his balls and crack. Made me howl!!!

Years ago there was a self-appointed MN prefect who used to post on AIBU threads to point out they were in the wrong section.

Prefect: "Shouldn't this be in Chat?"

Poster: "Shouldn't you be on a street corner somewhere?"

I don't know why it tickled me so much but it did grin

Beerincomechampagnetastes Sun 03-May-20 11:20:06

Someone posted that “getting that rapey bastard Harvey Weinstein into jail is like trying to get a cat in the bath”.

grin brilliant..still laugh every time I think about it.

Carolduckingbaskin Sun 03-May-20 11:21:01

@worraliberty lucky for me - as I think this should probably be in chat!

I came to say exactly this!!!!

The snapped and farted thread which we all thought was a hilarious typo until the op came on to explain it was not a typo!

RubaiyatOfAnyone Sun 03-May-20 11:24:12

Very recent one - OP asked what anti-vaxxer conspiracy theorists were worried would be in the covid vaccine.

One of the first responses said “Sedation, so we all stay inside whilst they change the batteries in the birds.” Genuinely makes me laugh every time i look out at the garden.

WorraLiberty Sun 03-May-20 11:24:22

Cheesey I honestly didn't think anyone else would remember it grin
