Am I Being Unreasonable?

A series of posters that explore the comedic qualities of Mumsnet; bringing to light the unusual anagrams that are often used by it’s users. The compositions of each poster are born out of the frequency to which the associated anagram is used. Some of my favourites include NAK, which means “nursing at keyboard”, and SWOI, which translates to “shagging without intent”. These aburd anagrams highlight the light-hearted side of what is otherwise considered to be a controversial, and sometimes borderline offensive, social network.
