I thought "cockwomble" was a MN thing too, but I've been told on here that it's not (though I've never heard it elsewhere)

But I do reckon Adam would be a MNer Smile

There's already a thread about this, but 'cockwomble' has been in the urban dictionary since 2004.

I think it's a phrase that Mumsnet has wrongly 'claimed'.

Just like 'words on a screen' and 'fuck off to the far side of fuck' etc...which have been around the internet for donkey's years.

Chuh. Sorry all. Did a search and all... face palm

Well if he has a BF wife then the odds are pretty high that she reads MN. And they did do the "I fancy Jeremy Corbyn" thread the other week, but then so did everyone else.

CloserToFiftyThanTwenty · 15/08/2015 02:07

Here's the other thread Smile

My DD served him in the restaurant she works in last week, tightwad didn't leave a tip.

I love the last leg. Adam Hills is v v funny. Hi if he is reading this (bet his wife reads him out the best bits).

If Josh Widdecombe ever wants adopting we have a spare bedroom Grin

LeBearPolar · 15/08/2015 10:07

I first heard "cockwomble" on the BBC series Our Girl - definitely not a MN thing!

Nevercallmehun · 15/08/2015 10:09

He probably does after that last thread where hundreds of MNers aired their desires to do unspeakable things with him.

MrsReiver · 15/08/2015 10:10

Moonrise if you do adopt him, please ask to see his Greg Davies tattoo on his ankle. I am convinced it's fake!

FrancesOldhamKelseyRIP · 15/08/2015 10:24

The tattoo or the ankle Mrs R?

If you're reading Mrs Hills, we were only kidding about all those things we wanted to do, and if we did bump into your husband we would be the soul of politeness and reserve we promise.

MrsReiver · 15/08/2015 11:22

Grin The tattoo, I think it's henna. I also want to know if he gave Romesh his wedding band back, although Romesh wasn't wearing it last night. [insert stalker emoji]

DrHarleenFrancesQuinzel · 15/08/2015 11:26

Ive never heard cockwomble ever. Clearly dont MN enough

EggOnTheFloor · 15/08/2015 11:29

His rant was MN worthy to be fair.

I quite like him and his style of comedy but yes his wife is highly likely to be an MN'er!

ROARmeow · 15/08/2015 18:13

MrsReiver what's that you're saying about Romesh's wedding ring? I remarked to my DH last night that he wasn't wearing it.

I love Adam Hills, fall in love with him a little bit more every time I see him on TV.

ThisIsClemFandango · 15/08/2015 18:16

I hope he does, I luffs Adam Hills

TidyDancer · 15/08/2015 18:19

Adam Hills is my favourite Australian ever. And I have family there. Grin

Ohfourfoxache · 15/08/2015 19:34

Last night's BF rant was utterly spot on Grin

I wonder if he is actually among us, and if so, what is his MN NN....?

Mindexplode · 15/08/2015 19:36

I have met him, he was lovely and funny Grin

TidyDancer · 15/08/2015 19:39

Have you seen the BF rant he did with Jennifer Saunders? That was one of the best ever. My favourite rant is still the NHS/Gove/Hunt/massive bunch of cunts one. I youtube it frequently and laugh every time.

pieceofpurplesky · 15/08/2015 20:05

Cockwomble was a term used when I was at university near Wimbledon to refer to people who did stupid things ... That was 20 years ago

yellowdinosauragain · 15/08/2015 20:10

Mine too tidydancer. I fucking love that is utter unadulterated genius Grin

He definitely reads mn. He's mentioned it more than once (phworben anyone?) Grin

IAmAdamHills · 15/08/2015 20:40

Good evening
