I should've posted links but I'm getting my children's tea ready. I'm such a BAD mumsnetter! A good one would post all links.

A-HA take on me

ladymariner · 14/01/2009 17:58

This might be a hijack but if I heard stutter rap played I'd ask it be turned off. If it wasn't I'd stamp on it. Being the mother of a stammerer makes me somewhat sensitive to offensive, insulting shit like that
