You have not just returned from your 'hollibobs'. You were on holiday. I can cope with 'vacation' if you are from North America.

The word 'hollibobs' has MORE LETTERS than the word that you are replacing it with.

And it makes you look dim.

I didn't know the word "hollibobs". I love it! I'm going to start saying it! (well, if I ever go on a hollibobs.) YABU!

JackNoneReacher Wed 10-Jul-13 21:47:13

YANBU. Someone I really like just used it I can't believe it. Perhaps it was a joke but its still no excuse. Prepare yourself to defriend people you actually like...

Even putting it in your thread title has irritated me grin

Yanbu!

Yes agree, far far too perky.

LalyRawr Wed 10-Jul-13 21:47:46

Have never heard of this word before.

What the actual fuck?!

MmeLindor Wed 10-Jul-13 21:48:04

Yika
I demand you forget seeing this thread immediately. I will not be responsible for you losing all your friends.

My sister in law uses it all the time. Annoys the hell out of me.

HoneyDragon Wed 10-Jul-13 21:48:06

Why is irritating?

Yanbu! It's up there with windy pops <stabby emoticon>

Doodledumdums Wed 10-Jul-13 21:48:25

YABU! I went on holibobs! It was definitely a holibob and not a holiday grin

Bluestocking Wed 10-Jul-13 21:49:11

You are such a funbuster!
I am going on my holliwollibobbingtons on 26 July and I can't wait. Squeeeeeeee! Let me take my sockywockers off and work out how many sleeps that is.

primallass Wed 10-Jul-13 21:50:01

YANBU. Because the word is hollibags.

MmeLindor Wed 10-Jul-13 21:50:20

[shudder]

Strangely, I don't mind 'windypops'.

LaQueen Wed 10-Jul-13 21:51:09

I have been known to use it, but probably only to the DDs, or writing on here...it amuses me.

MsVestibule Wed 10-Jul-13 21:51:15

I try not to care. I'm also trying not to care when my FB friends have a glass of vino, or LOL. But I do, I really do.

parakeet Wed 10-Jul-13 21:51:22

Bluestocking thank you. Going to use all those terms from now on.

LaQueen Wed 10-Jul-13 21:52:12

Now, you see I can't bear windy pops...makes me stabby.

LalyRawr Wed 10-Jul-13 21:52:17

I need to hide this thread before I get twitchy and violent.

sockyfuckerwockers

<shudders>

grin

God I can't take this anymore I'm cringing <hide thread now hide it hide it>

gamerchick Wed 10-Jul-13 21:53:00

Holibobs is an brilliant word, I always use it grin

Bluestocking Wed 10-Jul-13 21:53:16

Yay meeee! Parakeet likes my words! Now use them all tomorrow, let's link little fingers and pinkypromise!

MmeLindor Wed 10-Jul-13 21:54:15

But WHY?

It takes longer to write and make you sound dim. Why would you use it, even in jest.

LaQueen Wed 10-Jul-13 21:54:58

I'm also partial to Toodle Pip, too...
