America - its all a bit odd...

Agreed, I read the whole thread over the period of a couple of days when I first saw it. I stopped reading when it was no longer good natured ribbing.
One rational poster attributes it to a broader "coarsening" of social media generally. That is likely part of it but there certainly seems to be a virulent strain that has entered the ARRSE bloodstream.

They virulent stream were always here. There was a long running thread about the twin towers - really ‘funny’ stuff. I am sure the warrington bombings/hills borough had similar comedic threads...

Yeah we do, and we also get the concept of bluffing, lying cnut.
Redshift is actually an Indian drone working in a Mumbai Call Centre? Who knew? :omfg: :nod::pc:

Game and Fish just came to our camp site while were away and marked our animals. Did. not see any officers out and about either.
That's OK; their job is to see you, not to let you see them. :p I had a Wisconsin DNR warden pop out at me while I was fishing on the bank of a pond at FT McCoy. Fair startled me. He just wanted to see if I had my license, which of course I did.
 
Rubbish! Ani fule no biltong is light years better than that jerky stuff.
@Lardbeast funnily enough, for the first time ever, I found surprisingly good jerky as I was coming home stumbling and hungry. Probably one of the best I ever had, never even heard of them before tonight. Was tasty. It was such a random purchase at the Co-Op.


This one to be specific. The snack pack itself didn't cost 22.50...more like 1.89 or something.

They don’t go all out and try to be spec ops commandos like some states. No camo or tac rifles. Just red shirts and a sidearm. They mostly tend to very friendly and personable here, and ruining a stalk would invite a butt chewing and grumbling to higher.

I find jerky soggy, usually overly sweet/seasoned and faintly artificial. There's a company in the US called Kalahari Biltong making stuff which is pretty close to the real thing but there's still a tinge of the artificial about it. Can't quite put my finger on what it is but they're almost there...

An ex-colleague of mine told me a story that surprised me. when he was still in the USAF, based in Alaska, he used to go out fishing a lot with his Master Sergeant (Or something like that). One day they were out trying and failing to get a good haul and a game warden turned up. Apparently he wasn't massively interested in their permits or what they were catching, but in their gear; particularly he wanted them to show him their firearms. It seems that if you go fishing in the boonies in Alaska, you have to carry a firearm capable of killing an aggressive hungry bear. Also you have to keep your catch a hundred yards or so away from where you are fishing, so that if a bear does turn up it has the opportunity to take your fish without a direct confrontation.

It's a little bit different from angling for Carp in Picmere.

Nah it's not true. The bears up in Alaska are really friendly.

Oi, Jonesy, what did you do to get smitten with the smite hammer?

Who smitted you?

I’m not surprised at some of the Friday night drunken twats getting a good smiting but it seems out of character for you.

I am profane, and angered an island. So I earned the red badge until normal jogging resumes!

Not wearing a MAGA hat... the pair of traitors. Sell Alaska back to the Russians.
I'm a traitor as well, never owned and never will own a MAGA hat. In fact all and any hats I own are logo free. Fcuked if I'll be a walking free advertisement for any company.
