I've just read my roundup.
I'm not on here as much at the moment as real-life if seriously getting in the way of my mumsnetting.
But I've just had a good old chuckle at the round up and wanted to say how bloody funny you all are.

Big pat on the back to StealthPolarBear for the surreal bubble comment. Loving it.

(Dragonbutter/Nevergoogledragonbutter here. Just pissing about with my name for MrsMH's sake.)

KnickKnack Fri 17-Jul-09 20:49:28 got a sticky grin

<<must post more good stuff about MN>>

nevergoogledragonbutter Fri 17-Jul-09 20:50:37

Did I???? Is MP working at HQ tonight? How naughty.

nevergoogledragonbutter Fri 17-Jul-09 20:51:13

Oooh, I've never had one of those before. grin

That's better than making it into the round up!

hunkermunker Fri 17-Jul-09 21:01:04

I must surely have one of the best post to being in the round-up ratios of any MNer grin grin

Was a v funny one this week, MP - nice one.

<<snogs Huker>> Good to see you (NormaStanlyFletch here)


Have been laughing at the Bounty invasion thread tonight.

<<wanders off to start sucky-uppy-sticky thread>>

nevergoogledragonbutter Fri 17-Jul-09 21:17:25

Was the sticky out of sympathy HQ? Did you think this slow thread might need a bit of helping hand along it's way?

It's not exactly taking off is it?

nevergoogledragonbutter Fri 17-Jul-09 21:18:09

Oh see, now i'm getting called a suck-up!

The shame.

We thought it nice for MP to see the words hilarious and round up juxtaposed, after all she toils away each week trawling through MN when she'd far rather be watching Doodle Do I'm sure.

(ps if anyone would like to start a thread with the words JustineMumsnet and fabulous in the title I reckon we could sticky it for a bit no problem smile unless of course it said GerryMumsnet is fabulous but that JustineMumsnet is a right old cow... that wouldn't work).

RubyBlueberry Fri 17-Jul-09 21:24:01

How do you know it's sticky?

stillstanding Fri 17-Jul-09 21:25:28

I love the round up normally but this week's one was absolutely genius. I actually forwarded it to a dozen people. I pmsl at each of the stories especially the bounty one. Hilarious!

MrsLH, well done you for your thread. And a huge thank you to MP for all her work - highlight of my week.

Tillyscoutsmum Fri 17-Jul-09 21:29:24

It was indeed genius...

<<Waves to DB - how are you ?>>

Doobydoo Fri 17-Jul-09 21:39:34

Never read it before today.Absolutely hilarious...will read again.Well Donegrin

skinupyacunt Fri 17-Jul-09 21:49:46

I think it should become a weekly thing. Starting a ruck with another forum. It could replace the obligatory friday night bumsex thread grin

morningpaper Fri 17-Jul-09 21:50:40

Ooh I like the way THIS is stickied

<head expands>

morningpaper Fri 17-Jul-09 21:52:50

I had to add the Bounty bit because you got funny after I'd finished my first draft of roundup

But the bounty thread made me roffle first thing this morning and absolutely HAD to be included

I WOULD far rather be watching Doodle Do. Can I have Chris Corcoran's email address? home phone number? I'll only stalk him a BIT?

TAFKAtheUrbanDryad Fri 17-Jul-09 21:52:58

I used to hurry home from work on a Friday, knowing that my round-up would be waiting for me in my inbox.

Then, one day, it just stopped coming. No warning - or perhaps I just didn't pick up on the signs that it was over?

I begged, I pleaded, I changed my email address. I flounced de-registered and then came back via a plethora of different names. Still, no round-up.

Was it me, MP? Did I not pay you enough attention? You always said I was too busy, that I didn't treat you right. But I never thought you'd actually...go.

Now I have to read the round-up via the link on the right hand side of the page. It feels so, so... soulless. As though I'm peering in through a window at a party I'm not invited to.

This week she mentioned me. This week was a good week. Next week, I'm not so sure. We'll have to see.

moondog Fri 17-Jul-09 21:54:07

It is indeed very funny.
I've never read it before.Shall do forthwith.
<guffaw> at foul mouthed dyslexic Bounty chavs.

morningpaper Fri 17-Jul-09 21:56:36

you've never read it?

Moondog, after all these years that I have stood in front of supermarket shelves having the Moondog food Mantra of "Have someone fucked with it?" goig through my head, and you have not so much as read the blimmin' Roundup????

TAFKAtheUrbanDryad Fri 17-Jul-09 21:56:47

Why, MP? Why did your round-up stop coming directly to me? Was it the way I used to read the Onion Daily dispatch before the round-up? Did I not prioritise our time together?

Please. I have to know. I have to have closure so I can move on with my life.

morningpaper Fri 17-Jul-09 21:57:54

Did you tick the box in your registration options? <frowns>

Otherwise you will have to ask Tech. He will check the satellite link to your desk stuff

moondog Fri 17-Jul-09 21:59:11

B-b-b but miss. I promise to forthwith.
(As long as noone else has fucked with it, natch.)

morningpaper Fri 17-Jul-09 22:01:57


Well sometimes Justine fucks with it a bit

Also Gerry - she knows where commas go and stuff like that

But APART from that it is straight from the cow

DS wanted me to explain why I was laughing so hard. I told him it was a joke about spelling, I'm pretty sure that spelling is never funny for a 5 yr old, he made this hmm face.

I haven't been in the round up for ages, I remember the rush when I was. I imagine it's the same sort of rush that Take That feel when they walk out in front a screaming crowd at Wembly. grin
