I haven't read the whole thread I am so important I don't care if this has been said fifty times already, it's not been said until I've said it.

AIBU? give me some sympathy and agree with me

I don't mean any offence but... I am a twat

I'm not being rude but... I am a twat

There must be more. Snark away...

'who is mumsnet royalty' = I desperately hope I am. Say me, say me!

MavisGrind Thu 04-Apr-13 21:35:34

I have mastered strikeout ergo I am hilarious.

Using ergo = I am a twat.

MavisGrind Thu 04-Apr-13 21:37:27

Northern I don't know about royalty, I'm still reeling from the fact you're only 36. <stalker> <twat>

Tee2072 Thu 04-Apr-13 21:38:30

If you've really mastered strike out you know you can do a whole line at a time.


I'm a twat.

Your wedding, your rules


I am new to MN

openerofjars Thu 04-Apr-13 21:46:24

Are you okay, OP? <head tilt> = I am a wind-up goady twat

PacificDogwood Thu 04-Apr-13 21:47:04

The use of 'fora' = I am clever, I is

I've mastered strikeout, must mean I am MN royalty. Not grin

PacificDogwood Thu 04-Apr-13 21:48:18

Any mention of 'mouldies' = has been on MN too long that'll be me then

NorthernLurker Thu 04-Apr-13 21:49:24

Well Mavis now I'm reeling from the idea you could think I was considerably older than 36. Do I know you? (= oh bugger she IS a stalker grin)

milkwasabadchoice Thu 04-Apr-13 21:49:49

HTH = hope this helps you realise that you're a twat.

Tee2072 Thu 04-Apr-13 21:51:50

NL you're 36? Such a babe! grin

(Saying someone is a a babe = you're a twat)

MavisGrind Thu 04-Apr-13 21:53:14

No, no, no Northern - not wishing to offend at all! Wisdom has nothing to do with age (and I'm older than you and a fuckwit) grin

MavisGrind Thu 04-Apr-13 21:55:07

Yeah...that all came out wrong blush

cumfy Thu 04-Apr-13 21:57:42

Flame away = <Hopes will be a 200+ thread>

It's none of your business = IABU, now fuck off.

Rant over = IABU but have crossed my fingers so nuuurrrrr.

smile = Fuck off

wink= I'm sure you'll agree I'm clever; now fuck off.

NorthernLurker Thu 04-Apr-13 21:58:37


I was just teasing. As my oldest child is nearly 15 I am starting to feel old though.

Tee2072 Thu 04-Apr-13 21:59:46

Do what I did, NL. Have a baby at 40.

By the time you're 44, like me, you'll feel about 60.

Probably not encouraging.


PacificDogwood Thu 04-Apr-13 22:02:23

Any mention of 'mouldies' = you are a twat grin

Try and have your a baby at 44 = geriatric mum upmanship = you are a twat

<<gets in to the sing of things>>

Oh, oh, and: overuse of evil <<>> = you are a twat

PacificDogwood Thu 04-Apr-13 22:02:47


Tee2072 Thu 04-Apr-13 22:03:42

grin PD

BarbaraWoodlouse Thu 04-Apr-13 22:05:07

"I'm not a sock puppet" = "I'm a sock puppet"

BarbaraWoodlouse Thu 04-Apr-13 22:07:08

<<glares at PD>><<loves creepy wee brackets>> = I am a twat grin

NorthernLurker Thu 04-Apr-13 22:08:24

grin at geriatric baby bearing upmanship. Nah. Three dds is enough for me smile

That reminds me though

'I've got a bump, 50 positive HPTs and a liking for gherkins but I can't be pregnant' = I had unprotected sex 4 months ago and I bloody well am pregnant.

NorksAreMessy Thu 04-Apr-13 22:17:45

HTH= I have just said something really nasty and want to end on an amusing note = I am a twat

But I love going to strip clubs, it is so empowering for the women who work there= I am a twat

I am a lawyer with my own island and nobody should get benefits ever, because I single handedly raised 97 children whilst being a successful island owning lawyer = I think you get where this is going

NorksAreMessy Thu 04-Apr-13 22:18:17
