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. almost missed the party.. seems today is International "Talk Like a Pirate" Day

    I'd go about growling and saying things like " Thank -ee " to the McD minions who bring my underdone fries but, I understand that most pirates of today hail form Somalia so I don't suppose they say much in the like of " Shiver me timbers" and " Ye, Scurvy Dogs!"

    Still, I do look right hard with an eye patch [ black leather, of course, matte finish ]

    oh, and

  2. Take this black spot to Blind Pugh! What next? International talk like a retard day? MLARRRRR!
  3. One for Rum Ration??
  4. Shame i'm not working tonight then. Some form of Pirate themed arrest would be amusing.

    "Avast ye scurvy dog, ye be nicked"
  5. Err no, the RN is a little sensitive at not being allowed to chase and detain real pirates...might cause a human rights incidents of the said pirates claiming refuge...

    But canucks can so the seas are safe for while....
  6. Maybe our RN are affraid of having their iPod's stolen?
  7. Fifteen men on a dead man’s chest

    Yo ho ho and a bottle of rum

    Drink and the devil be done for the rest

    Yo ho ho and a bottle of rum

    The mate was fixed by the bos’n’s pike

    The bos’n’ brained with a marlin spike and

    Cookey’s throat was marked belike It

    Had been gripped by fingers ten and

    There they lay all good dead men like

    Break o’ day in a boozing ken

    Yo Ho Ho and a bottle of rum

    What a load of old bollooks! ARRRRRRR!
  8. Dhaaaaaar! Matey!
  9. In honour of which I will succumb to an avatar.
    (Or should I reserve it for 'Walt as a Pirate Day', or be that the same thing?)

    Yes, you can all pish yourselves at the gayness of it, but I give you these immortal lines of the man talking the pirate talk:

    'You've clearly never been to Singapore!'

    'But why is all the rum gone??'

    'Allo, beastie!'

    and my personal favourite:

    'You're mad!'

    'Thank goodness for that, because if I wasn't, this would probably never work.'
  10. Some form of Pirate themed arrest would be amusing.

    I think walking the plank would be a good way of getting suspects to talk.
  11. Them that die will be the lucky ones.
  12. So, a pirate walks into a bar. He's got a ship's wheel in his pants.

    The bartender says: Looks like you've got a ship's wheel in your pants.

    Pirate says: Arrrrrrrr, it's driving me nuts.
