HO-HO-HO Merry Christmas grin

We have thought long and hard while drinking brandy and eating mince pies here at MNHQ and whittled it down to a whopping 14 finalists - the standard was very high indeed this year, thank you all for getting into the Christmas spirit.

Please vote for the ONE Christmas nickname change you like best - we've put the original nicknames next to the new ones, so you can admire/judge/snort at the wittiness of the changes.

This poll will close at midnight on Mon 10th Dec

And don't forget to pop over to the Christmas appeal thank you thread for a warm Christmassy glow.

Ooh i cant believe it, I have actually just said Oh Em Gee out loud! It's so exciting to be on there <overcome with emotion in a Gwyneth Paltrow stylee> grin

TeeElfOnTeeShelf Sat 08-Dec-12 07:48:46

My goodness, Hec has taken the lead!

This is very exciting.

Oh my giddy aunt. I amadeus the shortlist shock.

Off to vote now, some really great names there. No SantasStrapon though sad is it still too norty?

Smeggnog Sat 08-Dec-12 09:09:46

Amadeus? I meant 'made', obviously.

Are you drunk, autocorrect? hmm

TeeElfOnTeeShelf Sat 08-Dec-12 09:14:00

You not only 'amadeus' it Smeg, you're a contender!


BartletForTeamGB Sat 08-Dec-12 09:37:00

Wow, neck and neck for the top 3 right now!

Smegs got my vote, but it was a very close run thing. There are some great names there!

KatherinaMinola Sat 08-Dec-12 10:55:03

I love the Binfullofgiblets nc, but what does the original mean - Binfullofmaggotsonthe45?? Is it a line from a song? I don't get it.

JenFrankincenseAndMyrrh Sat 08-Dec-12 11:06:48

Brimful of Asha on the 45 is a song, I assume it is to do with that.

Voted for my lovely Smegs

KatherinaMinola Sat 08-Dec-12 11:11:35

Ahh, OK! But still - maggots??

TheSecretSantaDNCOP Sat 08-Dec-12 11:13:20

I always assumed it was a mondegreen, a misheard lyric.

KatherinaMinola Sat 08-Dec-12 11:18:05

That makes sense, thank you. I thought it might be MN folklore - a reference to a thread about fishing tackle abandoned on the bus... Relieved now.

pixiestix Sat 08-Dec-12 12:19:52

Very disappointed that SantasStrapon didn't make it sad

PeppermintonCandyCane Sat 08-Dec-12 17:04:49

I'm last sad

Any pity votes going spare? grin

chinglebellsbatmansmells Sat 08-Dec-12 17:36:09

Haha! Pepperminton, I think I got the spare pity votes already. grin

PeppermintonCandyCane Sat 08-Dec-12 17:58:10

Shall we open some wine and drink till we don't care? wink

chinglebellsbatmansmells Sat 08-Dec-12 18:05:33

Hear hear! wine

EggNogKnockers Sat 08-Dec-12 18:31:55

This is my first seasonal nc.

Thought it was quite witty.

Clearly I was wrong.

Seen some really good ones.

YouOldTinsellySlag Sat 08-Dec-12 19:32:12

Bugger. I'm late.

MammaTJ Sat 08-Dec-12 20:07:22

I think there should be different catagories. One for good but recognisable and one for really fucking clever!! I would have voted for different people for each one.

ChippingInAWinterWonderland Sat 08-Dec-12 22:13:46

MammaTJ - I think you are right!

Next year Olivia ?? wine

GoodKingWenSOLOslas Sun 09-Dec-12 01:08:02
