This is a question MTFU

When have you had to be brave when all you've wanted to do was weep like a blubber-titted bitch?
Tell us so we can judge you.

My folks live in that there countryside.
You know - full of farms and wildlife and such like. For a while they kept chickens for a bit of recreation, free eggs and the like.

As animals do from time to time, one of them got ill. The folks separated her from the rest of the flock so that nothing would spread - did all the right sorts of things, but it became apparent that this chook was on a downward slope.

Dad didn't have it in him to wring the chicken (to be fair I doubt I would have either). Resulting in:

A visit to the vet,

In a farming community,

With a chicken,

To have it put down.

I'm not sure that he ever fully felt he could hold his head up high in the town after that.

EDIT Bonus points for completely failing to read the question, anyone?

I like this!
I think it should win - even though it's the antithesis of an answer.

Yeah I only just read the actual sub-heading - I'd presumed MTFU would be about occasions where you needed to man up, rather than where you actually had.

My dad killed my pet rabbit by smacking it over the head with a brick. I'm not even sure there was anything wrong with it.

Dads are great aren't they?
My Dad was forever taking my temperature, I wasn't sick. I hated that rectal thermometer.

My dad had one of those!
Massive great pink thing - awful.

You have to be really careful with those in case the mercury leaks out and gives you AIDS

My uncle killed my cousin's gerbil with a shovel.

Actually, I think I should post that in a new thread.

It's probably libellous
you should reconsider that

Wow that was funny
about a day ago when a dozen or so other people had repeated it over and over again.

You should defo use it again.

You should definitely carry on posting your sarcastic comments, people find them REALLY funny!

(, Tue 6 Aug 2013, 13:59, closed)
Are you getting upset because people are mocking a stupid thing you said online?

(, Tue 6 Aug 2013, 14:44, closed)
No I was merely pointing out to GA that the thing he wrote that he thought was funny wasn't
Mostly because it had been repeated ad nauseum and hence the piss-take type of humour that had fuelled the original copy and pastes had looooong since worn off. Much like many of the posters who come here now he didn't seem to get it.
See BD, flogging a dead horse isn't really clever or even hurtful - the very first zing may have a slight sting - but the thousandth odd is just pointless really. And when Johnnie-Come-Latelies do it to try to look cool, it doesn't - it just makes them look like slow off the mark fuckwits.

Got it. Oh well at least it wasn't alright, cheers, okcupid, my 44,000ltr. swimming pool, fat manatee wife, cunt kid or flid that I was raping.

So there is that.
(, Wed 7 Aug 2013, 1:11, closed)
raping a flid?
that's probably libellous.
You should reconsider that post.
(, Wed 7 Aug 2013, 7:50, closed)
Oh snap!
You really are a bit slow on the uptake.

Shit, man. I'm sorry, I didn't mean to be so disrespectful. You people don't deserve be hassled by the likes of me.
Sorry dude.

Like shooting prawns in a barbie.
every. single. time.
(, Wed 7 Aug 2013, 9:13, closed)
"ON" the barbie.

I don't intend to seem mean, seeing that you are, well - like you are.
If you're going to try and do a simile. At least get the syntax and lexicon correct.

Colour me
zinged kinda sad and a bit guilty for having picked on you.

Did you?
Sorry, I didn't notice. All I saw was literary static from you.

That would make a good QOTW, 'Stuff that you've killed'

We all could use a neighbour like that
God knows we need something to feel smug about.

My grandad
always used to wring a chicken's neck for the pot each weekend, until he got too old to catch them. So he used a shotgun instead. Not a lot of meat left on a hen after it's been shot at close range with a shotgun

Did the injection interfere with the taste of the gravy on Sunday though?

I read this in the style of Lonnie Donegan's chewing-gum themed skiffle classic of yesteryear.
