British Army v McDonalds

Discussion in 'The NAAFI Bar' started by fattwat, Feb 23, 2013.

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. According to Private Eye after the latest round of cuts there will be 82,000 people employed by the British Army
    whereas Mcdonalds employ 85,000 in the UK. Atleast the RHA should be safe for sometime.
     
  2. And of those 85000, about 7 are from this country.

  3. That's nice.

    Does the number of employees McDonalds has have any relevance to the size of the British Army?

    How many MBTs does Burger King have?
     
  4. KFC have a couple of offensive wings

  7. Does it say anywhere that it has any relevance to the size of the Army?
    I think the point is that a fast food company has more people flipping burgers and sweeping up than Britain has to defend itself. And if you where to only consider front line troops the number would probably be around 30,000.

    How many Divisions does the Pope have? Stalin said that once upon a time; so, think on.
     
  9. Ii don't think burger king has any but mcdonalds have a right shit load of ' Mcdonald's Burger Trays'
     
  10. You are talking about Scottish infantry battalions then.
     
  11. There's a lot more chance of a load of people wanting a crappy burger than there is of an invasion of the UK. The UK probably doesn't even need 85,000 men to defend it, as no-one's going to invade us. We're keeping people employed so we can play invading foreign shitholes not to hold off 3. Panzerarmee.
     
  12. There's more 5 Stars at McDonalds too

  13. What you sayin Jimmy's mate? It's more important we give people in UK working "standards" like slave wage at maccy d's? When we go to war, Russia will have over two million troops! Ps are you German?
     
  14. It's lucky we would then be going to war with Russia anytime soon then, isn't it?

    You skiplicker.
     
  15. Their Whoppers remind some of defence policy.
