    Ant, for the thousandth time you have 'protested' against my mumfie thread, whilst all the while purpoesely keeping the thoughts of it never far from the minds on the forum. Countless times I have made the glaringly truthful statement that 'the lady doth protest to much'. So finally, here is the actual quote, taken from Hamlet, scene 3, act 2. I present it to you for your enjoyment, so you can appreciate it in it's slightly edited glory



    PLAYER QUEEN
    May the earth refuse me food and the heavens go dark, may I have no rest day and night, may my trust and hope turn to despair—may the gloom of a prison overtake me, and may my every joy be turned to sorrow.
    May I know no peace either in this life or the next one, if I become a wife again after I am a widow.

    HAMLET
    If she should break it now!
    HAMLET
    Nice vow, but what if she breaks it?



    215 PLAYER KING
    'Tis deeply sworn. Sweet, leave me here awhile.
    My spirits grow dull, and fain I would beguile
    The tedious day with sleep
    .
    PLAYER KING
    You have made this vow with deep sincerity. My dear, leave me alone now awhile. My mind is getting foggy, and I would like to sleep and escape this endless day.
    The PLAYER KING sleeps
    The PLAYER KING sleeps.


    PLAYER QUEEN
        Sleep rock thy brain,
    And never come mischance between us twain.
    PLAYER QUEEN
    Sleep tight, and may nothing come between us.
    Exit PLAYER QUEEN
    The PLAYER QUEEN exits.

    HAMLET
    Madam, how like you this play?
    HAMLET
    Madam, how are you liking this play?

    GERTRUDE
    The lady protests too much, methinks.
    GERTRUDE
    The lady’s overdoing it, I think.

    HAMLET



    There you are. You can now print this off and keep it as a constant reminder, of my reply evertyime you mention the elephant that cannot be mentioned, that you love mentioning.

    Either way the negative mumfie thread comment has led to this point, and it's still valid whoever makes an anti mumfie comment, or even maybe thinks about making one in the future

    I loved the Mumfie thread. Does it still exist or was it lost when the new forum was created? If it no longer exists, I think you should make a new Mumfie thread. Ant E in particular would love that.

    I think it was lost to the mists of time. Ido however think it's long due a revival

    No, I don't want to start using Ant's second-rate catchphrases.

    I'm going to risk getting a slap, being declawed, stuffed in a basket and shot into the V-e-t via a cannon, but what is a Mumfie?
