Discussion in 'The Lamp and Sandbag II - The Tall Story Strikes B' started by eve1962, Nov 26, 2004.

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. OK, I'm a newbie and I'm bloody bored here, stuck in work with nothing to do. So, any jokes or anything??

    Confession. I was arrested yesterday for GBH. Wasn't my fault though. I was in B&Q and this bloke in orange overalls asked me if I wanted decking. So I got the first punch in.

  2. Mens rules for women

    If you think you're fat, you probably are. Don't ask us.
    Learn to work the toilet seat; if it's up put it down.
    Birthdays, Valentines, and Anniversaries are not quests to see if we can find the perfect present once again.
    If you ask a question you don't want an answer to, expect an answer you don't want to hear.
    Sometimes, we're not thinking about you. Live with it.
    Saturday = Football. It's like the full moon or the changing of the tides. Let it be.
    Don't ask us what we're thinking about unless you are prepared to discuss such topics as navel fluff, Christmas Tree formation and carburettors.
    Shopping is not a sport.
    Anything you wear is fine. Really.
    You have enough clothes.
    You have too many shoes.
    Ask for what you want. Subtle hints don't work.
    No, we don't know what day it is. We never will. Mark anniversaries on a calendar.
    Yes, pissing standing up is more difficult than peeing from point blank range. We're bound to miss sometime.
    Most guys own two or three pairs of shoes - what makes you think we'd be any good at choosing which pair, out of thirty, would look good with your dress?
    'Yes' and 'No' are perfectly acceptable answers.
    A headache that lasts for 17 days is a problem. See a doctor.
    Your Mum doesn't have to be our best friend.
    Don't fake it. We'd rather be ineffective than deceived.
    Anything we said 6 or 8 months ago is inadmissible in an argument. All comments become null and void after 7 days.
    If something we said can be interpreted two ways, and one of the ways makes you sad and angry, we meant the other one.
    Let us ogle. If we don't look at other women, how can we know how pretty you are?
    Don't rub the lamp if you don't want the genie to come out.
    You can either ask us to do something OR tell us how you want it done, not both.
    Whenever possible, please say whatever you have to say during commercials.
    Christopher Columbus didn't need directions, neither do we.
  3. Classic Tommy Cooper

    Two fat blokes in a pub, one says to the other "your round." The other
    one says "so are you, you fat bastard"

    Two cannibals eating a clown. One says to the other "Does this taste
    funny to you?"

    Police arrested two kids yesterday, one was drinking battery acid, the
    other was eating fireworks. They charged one and let the other one off.

    A blind bloke walks into a shop with a guide dog. He picks the dog up
    and starts swinging it around his head. Alarmed, a shop assistant calls out: 'Can I help, sir?' 'No thanks,' says the blind bloke. 'Just looking.'

    "Cos it's strange, isn't it. You stand in the middle of a library and go 'Aaaaaaagghhhh' and everyone just stares at you. You do the same thing on an aeroplane, and everyone joins in.

    "He said 'I'm going to chop off the bottom of one of your trouser legs and put it in a library.' I thought 'That's a turn-up for the books."

    "And the back of his anorak was leaping up and down, and people were
    chucking money to him. I said 'Do you earn a living doing that?'
    He said 'Yes, this is my livelihood.'

    "So I was getting into my car, and this bloke says to me "Can you give me a lift?" I said "Sure, you look great, the world's your oyster, go for it.'"

    "You know, somebody actually complimented me on my driving today. They
    left a little note on the windscreen, it said 'Parking Fine.' So that was nice."

    "So I went down my local ice-cream shop, and said I want to buy an
    ice-cream'. He said Hundreds & thousands?' I said 'We'll start with one.' He said 'Knickerbocker glory?' I said 'I do get a certain amount of freedom in these trousers, yes.'

    I went to Millets and said 'I want to buy a tent.' He said 'To camp?', I said (butchly) 'Sorry, I want to buy a tent.' I said 'I also want to buy a caravan.' He said 'Camper?' I said (camply) 'Make your mind up.'

    So I went to the dentist. He said "Say Aaah." I said "Why?" He said "My dog's died.'"

    "Now, most dentist's chairs go up and down, don't they? The one I was in went back and forwards. I thought 'This is unusual'. And the dentist said to me 'Mr Cooper, get out of the filing cabinet.'"

    "So I got home, and the phone was ringing. I picked it up, and said
    "Who's speaking please?' And a voice said 'You are.'"

    "So I rang up my local swimming baths. I said 'Is that the local swimming baths?' He said 'It depends where you're calling from.'"

    "So I rang up a local building firm, I said 'I want a skip outside my house.' He said 'I'm not stopping you.'

    "Apparently, 1 in 5 people in the world are Chinese. And there are 5 people in my family, so it must be one of them. It's either my mum or my dad. Or my older brother Colin. Or my younger brother Ho-Cha-Chu. But I think it's Colin."

    "So I was in my car, and I was driving along, and my boss rang up, and he said 'You've been promoted.' And I swerved. And then he rang up a second time and said "You've been promoted again.' And I swerved again. He rang up a third time and said 'You're managing director. 'And I went into a tree. And a policeman came up and said 'What happened to you?' And I said 'I careered off the road.'
  4. No but yeh but no but yeh but no but yeh - already heard that one. Try again.

    "Yeh I know" ................
  5. Two strangers were seated next to each other on a plane. The guy turned to the cute blonde next to him and made his move.
    "Let's talk," he said.
    "I've heard that flights will go quicker if you strike up a conversation with your fellow passenger."
    The blonde, who had just opened her book, closed it slowly, and said to the guy, "What would you like to discuss?"
    "Oh, I don't know," said the passenger. "How about nuclear power?"
    "OK," said the blonde. "That could be an interesting topic. But let me ask you a question first: A horse, a cow, and a deer all eat grass. The same stuff. Yet a deer excretes little pellets, while a cow turns out a flat patty, and a horse produces muffins of dried poop. Why do you suppose that is?"
    "Oh brother," said the guy. "I have no idea."
    "So tell me," said the blonde, "How is it that you feel qualified to discuss nuclear power when you don't know sh1t?"
  6. Bush opened the letter and it appeared to contain a coded message:


    Bush was baffled, so he typed it out and emailed it to Colin Powell.
    Colin and his aides had no clue either so they sent it to the CIA.
    No one could solve it so it went to the NSA and then to MIT and NASA and
    the Secret Service.

    Eventually they asked the Royal Canadian Mounted Police for help. Five
    minutes after receiving the coded message to interpret, the Lethbridge
    General Investigation Section of the RCMP cabled the White House: "Tell
    the President he is looking at the message upside down!"

    shuts the door in his face.

    Why doesn't glue stick to the bottle?

    Why do they use sterilised needles for death by lethal injection?

    Why doesn't Tarzan have a beard?

    Why do Kamikaze pilots wear helmets?

    Whose idea was it to put an "S" in the word "lisp"?

    What is the speed of darkness?

    Are there specially reserved parking spaces for "normal" people at the Special Olympics?

    If you send someone 'Styrofoam', how do you pack it?

    If the temperature is zero outside today and it's go ing to be twice as cold tomorrow, how cold will it be?

    If people evolved from apes, why are there still apes?

    If it's true that we are here to help others, what are the others doing here?

    Do married people live longer than single ones or does it only seem longer?

    Any car can last a lifetime, just drive irresponsibly enough!

    If someone with a split personality threatens to commit suicide, is it a hostage situation?
