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. Somebody was detained today at Parliament after being caught in the act of spreading a "white powder."

    Authorities apparently feared it was anthrax, sealed and tested the affected area.

    Apparently a false alarm.

  2. Well, Anthrax is most common in domestic cattle. Perhaps someone was targetting the New Labour MPs?
  3. Probably cocaine.
  4. Sensible precautions after this kind of incident. Doesnt mean the authorities actually believed that it was anthrax. Much the same as a bomb hoax.
  5. So it wasn't anthrax? Worra bummer!


  6. It was John Prescott dusting his capacious Y-fronts to get rid of the crabs
  7. Silly question. If they had wiped out the entire government would anyone have really noticed, much less cared? 8)

  8. Curse this visual imagination of mine. I feel physically ill now.
  9. John Prescott did admit that he missed the croquet and while he now couldn't play, he still had to dust his balls.
