My mum says... the strangest things!

My mum says… the strangest things!

We all love our mums but they do come out with some odd things! When we asked our Bunn Leisure community to tell us their favourite "mum sayings" we were overwhelmed with responses.

Some were soppy, some were funny and many were just plain bonkers! Here we've picked out some of the best.


My mad mum says…

"If you fall and break your leg, don't come running to me!"

Me: "I'd better be going, call me a taxi." Mum: "OK… you're a taxi!"

"Do you think I came up the Thames on a motorbike?"

"When the ice cream van plays a tune, it's run out of ice cream!"

"If your nose runs and your feet smell, you were made upside down!"

Me: "I can't!" Mum: "Put can't back in your pocket and pull out try!"

"Up the wooden hill to Bedfordshire!"

"I don't care! I was made to care then put in a pot and boiled!"

"You're as useful as a chocolate teapot!"

"If you break your legs, don't come running to me!"

"Cough it up, it could be a golden watch!"

"If you play with your belly button your bum will drop off!"

"Always boil your sausages!"

"I can't hear you as I haven't got my glasses on!"

"I used to have functioning brain cells… I traded them for children!"


My soppy mum says….

"No matter how big you get, you will always be my baby"

"I love you up to the moon, round the stars and back down again".

"I love you more than yesterday but not as much as I will love you tomorrow."

"Life doesn't come with a manual - it comes wi

th a mum."

"Love you lots and lots, love you more than Jelly Tots!"

"As high as the sky and as wide as the sea. That's how much you mean to me!"

""Life's too short to be anything but happy."

"Always love your mother because you will never get another."

"A kiss can fix anything."

"The most beautiful thing you can wear is your smile."


Mealtime mum…

Me: "Mum, I'm hungry!" Mum: "Hi.. I'm mum!"

Me: "What's for tea?" Mum: "Fresh air and snowballs!"

Me: "What's for tea?" Mum: "Marzipan crumble and custard!"

Me: "What's for dinner, mum? Mum: "Ifits. Ifits in the cupboard you can have it!"

Me "How long will dinner be?" Mum: "10 inches!"

"Don't forget to blow on your ice cream, it'll be hot!"

"My menu consists of two choices - take it or leave it!"

"Fingers were made before forks."

"If you eat the seeds of an apple, trees will grow out of your ears!"

"If you don't eat your greens your hair will fall out!"


Mum 'nose' best…

"If you keep picking your nose, your brains will cave in!"

"Don't pick your nose cos your finger will get stuck!"

"If you pick your nose your bogies will turn into spiders!"


Angry mum

"Do as I say, not as I do!"

"You've cooked your goose, my girl!"


"If you can't say anything nice then don't say anything at all!"

"Look with your eyes, not with your hands!"

"Shut the door, you weren't born in a barn!"

"If all your friends jumped off a cliff, would you?"

"I always love you, but I don't always like you!"

"If you walked any slower you'd be going backwards!"

"Put the wood in the hole!" (shut the door)

"Where's your manners? In your boots or in your shoes?"

"I went through labour for you and you can't do this one small thing!"

"Only boring people get bored!"

"Do we live in Blackpool with all the lights on!"
