to not feel the mirth when an adult uses a star/flower/heart/smiley face rather than a tittle?

Most people grew out of that in first year seniors, yes?

No, I don't think you're quirky I just think you're a bit of a doily. And take that Disney tshirt off too, while we're on the subject.

Sorry, what's a tittle?

What's a tittle? [wunk]

YANBU and it definitely should be restricted to younger teenagers and whilst you're taking your Disney t-shirt off, get your fucking stupid I'm powered by fairy dust sticker off your car.

Where can I get a tittle? They sound fun.

No, I can't stand smileys. My ex boss used to sign off with smileys, the great berk.

It is the equivalent of the thick girls at school who did little circles above their i's.

I judge the bastards.

One of my favourite sites around Gloucester is a purple Toyota Rav 4, which has a disney eeyore on the wheel cover, and the legend 'Shelagh' in pink cursive script on the rear window.

Shelagh, if you are a mumsnetter and you see someone in a black audi pointing and laughing at you, that'll be me.

lolol what a twat I am.

I thought it was a typo and you meant to type title.

Mind you that makes no sense, because who the fuck uses a smiley instead of their title?

Just ignore me. je suis un stupid arse. Grin

Not entirely clear what "wunk" means either. I have an idea that it must be something that takes place around chest level - as in half way between a wink and a ...


ShirleyKnot · 31/03/2011 14:54

I never knew that the dots above "i"'s had a name, let alone that they would be called tittles. Well, well, learn something new everyday and all that.

Those disney shirts are bad - but not quite as bad as those "tattered friend" ones. I used to work with a woman who wore winnie the pooh earrings and had one of those Shaun the Sheep backpack things. She was about 43.


slowshow · 31/03/2011 15:29

The dot above the i is called a tittle? I had NO IDEA.


CadleCrap · 31/03/2011 15:34

Does the dot above the j have a special name or is it a tittle as well?


JarethTheGoblinKing · 31/03/2011 15:36

isn't a [wunk] just a misspelled Wink ?


Abcinthia · 31/03/2011 15:37

The dot above a j is also called a tittle CadleCrap


notso · 31/03/2011 15:50

How have I got to 30 and not known about tittle?

I thought it was a typo too, and people were saying they were Smile Surname perhaps as an alternative to Ms.

Is [wunk] an actual think like the new wink or is it a typo, I am seeing it all the time and say it in my head in a crap french accent like the policeman on 'Allo 'Allo.


pgpg · 31/03/2011 15:58

Obviously irony doesn't work all that well on an internet forum. Or maybe it's just that bad jokes don't Wink.

I'm wondering whether there should be an emoticon for wank though, what do you think?


ChaosTrulyReigns · 31/03/2011 21:19

I understood your irony pgpgpgp.

Vaire good.

I now have an image to accompany my typo.
