Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Just thought I'd share this one.

    I'll get my coat, shall I? :D

    ====

    1. OPENING JARS -
    nnng, she's struggling.. You take it from her hands, open it effortlessly and pretend she loosened it for you. She didn't. Jars are men's work.

    2. CALLING SOMEONE 'SON' -
    Especially policeman, but even saying it to kids makes you the man.

    3. DOING A PROPER SLIDE TACKLE -
    Beckham free kicks? Weak. A Stuart Pearce tackle is the pinnacle of the game, simultaneously winning the ball and crippling the man. Magic.

    4. SHARPENING A PENCIL WITH A STANLEY KNIFE -
    Blunt, is it? Hand it here love. No, I don't need a sharpener, you think I can't whittle?

    5. GOING TO THE TIP -
    A manly act which combines driving, lifting and – as you thrillingly drop your rubbish into another huge pile of other rubbish - noisy destruction.

    6. DRINKING UP -
    Specifically, rising from the table, slinging your coat on and downing two thirds of a pint in one fluid movement. Then nodding towards the door, saying, "Let's go" and striding out while everyone else struggles to catch up with you. You're hard.

    7. HAVING A THIN BIT OF WOOD -
    In the shed, solely to stir paint with.

    8. HAVING A SCAR -
    Ideally it'll be a facial knife wound, but even an iron burn on the wrist is good. "Ooh, did it hurt". "Nah".

    9. HAVING A HANGOVER AND THICK STUBBLE -
    When birds have been partying they just whinge. You, on the other hand have physical evidence of your hardness, sprouting from your face. "Big night?" Grr, what does it look like.

    10. NODDING AT COPPERS -
    A moment's eye contact is all it takes for you to share the unspoken bond. "We've not seen eye to eye in the past", it says, "but someone's got to keep the little scrotes in line".

    11. USING POWER TOOLS -
    Slightly more powerful than you need or can safely handle. Pneumatic drilling while smoking a cig? Superb.

    12. KICKING A FOOTBALL AGAINST A GARAGE DOOR -
    Clang-g-g-g-g-g-! Stitch that Becks, I kick so hard I set off car alarms.

    13. ARRIVING IN A PUB LATE...
    ...and everyone cheers you. It doesn't mean you're popular, it just means your mates are drunk. However, the rest of the pub doesn't know that.

    14. NOT WATCHING YOUR WEIGHT -
    Fat is a feminist issue, apparently. Brilliant. Pass the pork scratchings.

    15. CARVING THE ROAST -
    And saying "are you a leg or breast man" to the blokes and "do you want stuffing" to the women. Congratulations, you are now your dad.

    16. WINKING -
    Turns women to putty. Doesn't it?

    17. TEST SWINGING HAMMERS -
    Ideally, B&Q would have little changing rooms with mirrors so you could see how rugged you look with any DIY item. Until then, we'll make do with the aisles.

    18. TAKING OUT £200 FROM A CASHPOINT -
    Okay, so its for paying the plumber later but with that much cash you feel like a mafia don. The only thing better is peeling notes off the roll later.

    19. PHONE CALLS THAT LAST LESS THAN A MINUTE -
    Unlike birds, we get straight to the point. "alright? Yep. Drink? Red lion? George, it is then. Seven. See you."

    20. PARALLEL PARKING -
    Bosh, straight in. first time. Can Schumacher do that? No, because his cars got no reverse gear which, technically, makes you the world's best driver.

    21. HAVING EARNED THAT PINT -
    Since the dawn of time, men have toiled in the fields in blistering heat. Why? So, when it's over we can stand there in silence, surveying our work with one hand resting on the beer gut while the other nurses a foaming jug of ale. Aaaah.

    22. HAVING SOMETHING PROPERLY WRONG WITH YOU -
    Especially if you didn't make a fuss. "Why was I off, nothing much, just a brain haemorrhage".

    23. KNOWING WHICH SCREWDRIVER IS WHICH -
    "A Phillips? For that? Are you mad, bint?"

    24. TAKING A NEWSPAPER INTO THE LOO -
    A visual code that says that's right, I'm going in there for a huge, long man-sized shite.

    25. CALLING YOUR MATE A CUNT -
    And punching him on the shoulder. Just a man's way of saying "you're a good mate; I missed you while you were in hospital. But you're still a cunt.".
     
  2. 26. Copy/Paste

    Copy/paste sh1te stuff found on th'interweb or received via email.
     
  3. 3. DOING A PROPER TACKLE -
    Beckham free kicks? Weak Stuart Pearce tackle. Tackling like Mick the Munch is the pinnacle of the game, simultaneously winning the ball and crippling the man. Magic.

    Corrected it for you :)
     
  4. "Just thought I'd share this one."

    Mong. :roll:

    :D
     
  5. Saying 'Your not allowed to speak to me again today' to your partner....In a new relationship this would invariably solicit further reaction from your woman thus extending hostilities, however if youve punched her pale and ever frowning face in numerous times, leaving a litter of broken ornaments and punched in cupboard doors it has a desired effect and makes you feel like the man tw*tting the gong at the start of a RANK film ...
     
  6. 27. Being skiffed and then licking your lips.
     
  7. I quite liked it. And besides, it's Manuary.
     
  8. 28. Served in HM Forces (Don't know if crabs count)

    Which I believe trumps the original 26 :D

    Edited: JD got 27 first
     
  9. 29. My manly morning glory
     
  10. Being able to piss without getting undressed first.
     
  11. Pfft i can't believe it takes ANY interaction with a woman to make you feel a man you big hermer!! You don't catch gene Hunt worrying what a woman thinks. Give your head a wobble you pink frilly shirt wearing wussie!!
     
  12. Beating women and kids makes me feel like a man
     
  13. How long until we have a female version?

    Putting on a skirt the size of a thimble then complaining cos blokes look at you...

    Complaining that it's "so cold in here" despite the thermostat reading 30 and the last time you went out you wore a boob-tube and hotpants whilst it was -4 outside...

    Actually giving a shit what happens in Eastenders and Corrie...

    ...etc

    Shagging fat birds!
     
  15. turning round to admire the massive shite you have just taken- prior to wiping your arrse so that the bog roll doesn't ruin your view.
