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. I've just conned some poor bloke into thinking he is about get his hands on a castle!
    The best bit is,I will wait until he's spent all his money doing it up,and making it look fantastic,then I produce the long lost "cousin" of the original owner and claim it back!
    Genius or what?
     
  2. Erm I'd probably laugh if I had the fucking foggiest what you're on about.

    Belter son. Get in.

    Cousins are a strange one, eh? The sort of weedy twats who turn up at Christmas and funerals and that. "Have you come far?" "So, what are you up to these days?" That is about the extent of it. Then you make your goodbyes, climb into the motor, click some Rachmaninoff on the MP3 and hoof it back down the motorway. Families, eh? Heh.

    Of course, an appreciation of cousins presupposes their parents are still breathing air and are there to appreciate them. And that their cats, dogs, hamsters and amusing Macaws have not been strung up to an apple tree with piano wired. Then torched.

    Families. So precious. Such a delicate balance.

    Good luck with the castle gig.
