Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

    You wait until they notice everything he's said about Kerry Katona!!!!
  3. This is getting ridiculous, sodding nanny state nonsense! If they start censoring the show I'll have to agree with smartascarrots.

    Oil_Slick, I think your avatar says it all really.

  4. Worrying stuff indeed. On a lighter note, considering it's a serious article in a respected newspaper, you would have thought that to lead with the actual joke would be slightly misguided

    BBC satirical show Mock The Week is in trouble for joking that Olympic swimming champion Rebecca Adlington resembled "someone who's looking at themselves in the back of a spoon".

    Now, I couldn't take the rest of the story seriously after reading that, especially as directly below it is a picture of her looking like a reflection on the back of a spoon.
  5. Oh are we supposed to be outraged and offended from 200miles away at the other end of The TV screen...

    We have become a society that panders (Sp?) to the needs of the pathetic and the weak... Whatever happened to The Man on the Clapham omnibus who was of reasonable firmness.
  6. Did he mean her face or the rest of her bod? .

    I think she would be up there in the

    She'd get it posts

    Personally, me, myself, I, found the joke to be hilarious. The PC monkeys at BBC Trust have upheld the complaint, says it all really.

    However, I would like Rebecca to get her own back so it would have been funny if she had been allowed to walk on to the next show FB was on and stick a custard pie in his face, without him being pre-warned. Now that would have been great TV. :D

  8. How long before the Liebour Thought Crime Stazi start despatching you lot round to arrest the offenders?
  9. He's been arrested ...... but the evidence wouldn't stand up in court!

    Boom Boom!

    I'll get my coat....
