That's all.

Totally agree grin

I even have to elongate the "oo" sound when I read it.

Mine was fab! We had a house party with my mates and all of my female relatives! No trashy cliches allowed!

mupperoon Thu 22-Jan-15 21:31:50

But was it a do or a doo(oooooo)?

invisiblecrown Thu 22-Jan-15 21:32:26

I don't know the difference! Enlighten me!

seaoflove Thu 22-Jan-15 21:32:49

Haha! Mupperoon is complaining about the misspelling, not the concept of stag and hen parties.

HeartsTrumpDiamonds Thu 22-Jan-15 21:34:20

Shouldn't that be Mupperoooooooon wink

I have a friend who always writes due as in Stag Due/ Hen Due

Worse, so much worse!!

invisiblecrown Thu 22-Jan-15 21:41:39

Oh then yes, i wholeheartedly agree with the OP!

DealForTheKids Thu 22-Jan-15 21:46:14

Oh and apostrophe on a plural wink

I hate the term with the fire of a thousand suns.

"I'm going on my bff's hens."

Unless she has chicken slippers, no, you're not.

lobster I know a group who all write "hen due, work xmas due" etc. Boils my blood.

Dh talks about dooooooooos
But he does it ironically
They seem to be called hens these days anyway. 'Do' is just a syllable too far

PetulaGordino Thu 22-Jan-15 22:03:15

Doo makes me think of poo (doo doo perhaps?)

Which does mean that "stag/hen doo" actually makes sense

tribpot Thu 22-Jan-15 22:10:26

doo is a Scots word for pigeon. "Hen pigeon" takes it to a new level.

Interesting question about how you pluralise 'do' like hen do or hair-do. "Does" doesn't look right because you don't pronounce it 'dooz'. "Dos" doesn't look right because you would pronounce it 'doss'.

Doo doo Ron Ron Ron?

Scooby dooby dooby doooooo?

iklboo Thu 22-Jan-15 22:28:23

Is there a que for the hen due?

AgentProvocateur Thu 22-Jan-15 22:32:46

A doo is a pigeon in Scotland. << useless fact.

morethanpotatoprints Thu 22-Jan-15 22:34:21

I thought it was doo
thank you very much thanks
Some of us weren't taught very well.

I do like reading these threads though, I learn so much. It's like a little English lesson.

OP, I think it may have been my post you saw/ sore
just kidding grin

mupperoon Thu 22-Jan-15 23:28:50

iklboo I don't know whether to laugh or cry!

tribpot Hmmm, luckily the plural of dos (hen ones specifically) has not been a problem for me hitherto!

morethan Apologies, your post did remind me to start the thread, but I'd been meaning to doo it for a while, having noticed a spate of does round Xmas.

It is Pedants' Corner after all.

mupperoon - you wrote Xmas. Erk. Or is it only me who finds that abbreviation a bit ugly? (Not sure why).
