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. Apropos of nothing really..

    At the moment I am blessed with being an embed in some of Uncle Sam's finest. They take great pride in their command of the English language, for example informing me that they know that the British meaning of the word 'fanny' (snigger) differs from theirs. What they don't know is that while a hoop is something they chuck a basketball through, on the right-thinking side of the Atlantic its meaning is entirely different.

    Imagine their surprise and consternation then, that on being invited to partake in some '4 on 4 hoop action', instead of getting into sports kit, I start backing into a corner whilst fumbling for my side arm, muttering "save it for the detainees bubba....."
  2. maybe its because youd misled them when you were 'just nipping out the back to smoke a fag!'
  3. Apropos of nothing it might be, but it made me smile.

    If you have an especially early start do you offer to knock them up in the morning?
  4. Smokers also beware, gasping to suck on a fag can have all sorts of unforeseen consequences in San Francisco.
  5. Freudian slip? ;)
  6. No, more of an admission.

    Do you wear one?
  8. And here was me thinking this was another thread about American 'football'.
  9. Only in the Mess on Tuesdays....
  10. Did they actually use the term "4 on 4 hoop action"? If they did, they deserve a perrier award.
  11. My thoughts, too. Maybe "implant"? 8)

    Re cigs/fags - especially in LA - why didn't someone tell me about that 30 years ago?! :? :roll:
  12. sore 'hoop' afterwards?
