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. Right was arguing about this at work earlier.

    Is a banana a fruit or a herb?
  2. Its a fecking sex toy :wink:
  3. PK

    PK Old-Salt

  4. From "Ask Oxford"

    Both. A banana (the yellow thing you peel and eat) is undoubtedly a fruit (containing the seeds of the plant: see answer regarding tomatoes), though since commercially grown banana plants are sterile, the seeds are reduced to little specks. However, the banana plant, though it is called a 'banana-tree' in popular usage, is technically regarded as a herbaceous plant (or 'herb'), not a tree, because the stem does not contain true woody tissue.
  5. Christ, one minute I'm reading about Fuji pixelation and the next it's fcuking bananas.

    I think I'll just go and hang myself somewhere quiet.
  6. Duckster, you really need to improve the quality of the arguments you have at work... :roll:

    I've just argued with my boss about why we can't hold our team meeting in the pub... (well the sun's over the yard-arm SOMEWHERE in the world right now!) :lol:
  7. It was part of an antenna when I was in the Sigs


    Hopefully dui dear you practise safe banana-ing at all times :wink:
  9. And strangely so are pineapples P&B. Any other fruit inspired military equipment out there? Having an apple mac in the office doesnt count

  10. I spent my whole time getting 'Jiffed.' Does that count?
  11. Got issued a pear of 349's once..
