Your challenge is to suggest names for the places, streets and shops that would make up the County of Mumsnet.

The city would be called Forum. Its suburbs: Boden (designer, very expensive), Hunbury Hills (flashy and a bit TOWIE), Cleek (gated community).

Phew - lemon drizzle cake you say? Do you think they would serve it with a side order of chocolate almond cake? Lemon and chocolate is a v.good combination.

Yes, Spill the drink would be in Hunsbury. We could have a naice coffee shop which serves lemon drizzle cake.

dontcall wouldn't the Spill the drink coffee shop be the other side of the bridge from us? [Hopes]

The Goodhousekeeping cleaning emporium. Stacked with useful cleaning items. Also the good reads library which sounds an alarm to alert the other residences if you choose the wrong type of book. Spill the drink coffee shop and crèche where mums can drink coffee whilst their little darlings run amok.

Its alright. We can just shoot them out of canons towards any invading nethuns zombies

MoonlightandRoses Sat 05-May-12 23:08:39

And no bloody broken bananas either [stamps foot]. (Yes, I am that customer grin).

Jareth - sounds good, but you are aware goblins will have to follow the same clean up rules as dogs, and I understand they are far messier?

JarethTheGoblinKing Sat 05-May-12 23:06:50

Can I have an tower in the middle of the city with escher staircases and lots and lots of goblins please??

Do we have a white good store yet called "The Maintenance Wash(ing Machines)?

CuttedUpPear Sat 05-May-12 21:52:55

I think you'll find that I am the proprietor of said shop and will stock it accordingly.

Whoopydofoxpoo Sat 05-May-12 21:41:28

Moonlight - thank you !

FENTON park - yes ! (no deer please )

MoonlightandRoses Sat 05-May-12 21:39:19

But, we don't want cutted up pear, we want cutted-up pear...

MoonlightandRoses Sat 05-May-12 21:37:31

Whoopydo - of course! Bags, scoopers and ketchup (for the fox/badger poo) to be provided at strategic locations throughout the county.

Do we have a municipal park yet, BTW? Think it would have to be FENTON Park smile.

And Norman the Foreman would of course be in charge of any building work that needed to be carried out.

Every year the locals would make mannequins to hang on the walls of houses and sit on the village green, as one sees in villages. It would be the straw man competition.

A construction firm called 'Sue Purbly Built' shock I have spent hours, no days, trying to 'get' that name! <thick>

PomBearWithAnOFRS Wed 02-May-12 21:48:42

Oooo and somewhere to put Zombie's wheelie bin - maybe in a purpose built bin-shelter right beside the statue in the Town Square?

The Labour Klaxon needs to do a different klax than the Pustule Eruption Klaxon, which both need to be different to the Zombie Apocalypse/Generalised End of the World Klaxon...
We need a Klaxon Control Officer - volunteers anyone?
Where's Apocalypse when we need her?
