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 knew that section of sniffer Mice would show their worth in the end.

  3. You would be fucked on a hot day if it was smelly stilton in the back.
     
  4. Dairylea! Pah! Try smuggling Gorganzola, the mark of a true pro.
     
  5. Sounds daft but cheese is expensive stuff, check the price per kg compared to fillet steak.
     
  6. Ive been smuggling cheese through customs for years, maybe I should shower more.

  7. now we know why certain cheeses come in a wax wrapping and are rounded for easy insertion...

  9. That's why there's bonus peanut chunks and corn kernels in every box.
     
  10. Interesting numbers in that article.
    They smuggled C$ 200,000 worth of cheese and made C$ 165,000 of profit?
    That means original outlay / expenses etc came to C$ 35,000.
    A profit margin of over 450% is not to be sniffed at!
     
  11. you know the rules, pics or it never happened :)
     
  12. I thought the crime would have been actually conspiring to make people eat American cheese, the repugnant stuff that it is. From my trips there I have found they only have 3 kinds:

    1. Cheese in aerosol cans
    2. Monterey Jack, which tastes of nothing at all
    3. Anything resembling a Kraft cheese single

    I am aware they have (a few) others of course, but they all seem to be Monterey Jack with a different name!

    Looks like they've arrested the big cheese.

    Smuggle this in your hoop and you'd be smiling...
