Ponders Fri 21-Aug-09 22:34:16

Damn, I missed her, sorry

Particularly love it that xesmub from davidtennantshire has umpteen posts. The mods must have been to the pub today & left automod switched on.

I am crying all the way down to my knees reading these.

I notice that they've not published any comments since 13:06. I suspect that's when the moderators came back from lunch. Where they probably had a nice ham sandwich.

Stayingsunnygirl Fri 21-Aug-09 22:46:17

Those comments are absolutely priceless!!! Well done all of you. grin

Heated Fri 21-Aug-09 22:47:46

Same time, next week then?

GrimmaTheNome Fri 21-Aug-09 22:53:42

snurk snurk. I feel a bit sorry for the occasional earnest non-MN contributions.

IwishIhadtimetoreadnewspapers Fri 21-Aug-09 23:00:56

I'm so srry that I missed tis earlier!

Brilliant - the lot of you!

LovelyTinOfSpam Fri 21-Aug-09 23:02:40

OMG I have now been quoted in both the Times and the DM!!!

I don't know whether to <preen> or <gag>...

Those comments, though, are fucking brilliant grin

BitOfFun Fri 21-Aug-09 23:08:52

A Mouldie, Underbridge...ROFL grin

Thunderduck Fri 21-Aug-09 23:14:57

I'm waiting anxiously to see if they'll post my comment but I doubt it. It's so obviously a windup.

broguemum Fri 21-Aug-09 23:23:35

I just snorted water over the keyboard and it dos nt work so well anymr you vipers!

lepirate Fri 21-Aug-09 23:28:32

bloody brill!!

GrimmaTheNome Fri 21-Aug-09 23:31:19

There don't seem to have been any new posts for a long time... perhaps they are blocking contributions until they have hired a new moderator as the old one was clearly either asleep on the job or else an MN mole.

TheWolfHasNoCommentForTheDM Fri 21-Aug-09 23:32:30

"And funny how there was no obesity when children used to have to go up chimneys and down mines"

Excellent grin

LovelyTinOfSpam Fri 21-Aug-09 23:36:47

Good to see they are shortening/changing the nicknames of the people they're quoting, too...

Hangingbellyofbabylon Fri 21-Aug-09 23:37:37

love Marjorie Dawes - nothing like a dust sandwich. grin

Portofino Fri 21-Aug-09 23:39:17

As xesbum, I was pretty gratified that the moderator allowed me to cut and paste from Leah Hardy's "original" article. ie I postedbits of her "article" as comment. The moderator strangely didb't allow xesbum's comment that "MNtters were as mad as a box of frogs with an unhealthy interest in Pirate Sex" though

Portofino Fri 21-Aug-09 23:41:00

But the dust sandwich and baked potato posted wer truly excelllent!
