A very Little England face with eyes that dart around all over the place, nervously? And a pursed mouth so as to convey disgust at benefits culture, or any culture actually.

I'm not laughing at this. No I'm not. I'm not.

How about a topic called:

a round-up of all the poor journalism that has been copied and pasted with the comments from clearly misguided readers in the Daily Mail

RitaSkeeterWomanEater Thu 20-Aug-09 10:47:59

Or we could have a topic for MN's Daily Mail journos, called

"This week I 'ave been mostly hating ..."

definately need pursed lips

TheDMshouldbeRivened Thu 20-Aug-09 10:50:29

or cat bum face

harleyd Thu 20-Aug-09 10:52:52

is it weird that ive never actually seen anyone do a cat bum face before

TheDMshouldbeRivened Thu 20-Aug-09 10:54:25

you've not walked into a room with me then grin
or watched DM readers wink

grin at cat bum face. I was going to say a face like a smacked arse but thought it sounded a bit erm regional for the Daily Mail.

<Rictus smile>

I've been doing cat bum face all the way through reading the DM threads.

harleyd Thu 20-Aug-09 11:00:33

oh ive seen loadsa people with faces like well smackes arses grin

OrmIrian Thu 20-Aug-09 11:02:57

Yes! Cats bum face. Yes please. Or perhaps we can have a moving emoticon - a head shaking from side to side, or someone jumping up and down apoplectic with rage.

Surely just a pair of net curtains twitching?

NotEvenTheTrees Thu 20-Aug-09 11:11:37

A smiley with a pitchfork please.

RitaSkeeterWomanEater Thu 20-Aug-09 11:11:38

Or a trigger finger twitching.

I think we'd need a whole series of them really- I need a super strong blush to emote my extreme embarrassment at BIL and wife being DM readers- [s strength blush]

Also a \shock/ (weeps into hands) when one finds oneself 'quoted' in the farceticle...

EachPeachPearMum Thu 20-Aug-09 11:52:15

They'd also need a [thumps table, rolls eyes] "It's PC gone mad" emoticon...

Stayingsunnygirl Thu 20-Aug-09 11:54:13

Lolol - yes, please can we have a cats bum face emoticon. And I need a forgetful old gimmer one. And a tearing my hair out one could be useful too. [smiles]
