Claims to Fame

Discussion in 'The NAAFI Bar' started by Sabre, Mar 14, 2005.

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. Appologies if this has already been done to death before.

    But whilst sitting here at work, bored out of my tiny little mind, my mind wondered to things like have i ever been famous, or come close to it?

    When i realised that the answer was no, other than appearing on a news programme jumping around like a mong on a pogo stick behind the journo when i was 10, It set me off racking my brains for what are my actual claims to fame.


    I hooked Jimmy White (snooker player) up to the Internet

    Mike Nolan from Bucks Fizz Nicked a pair of my Black socks - thieving Gypo

    Insulted half the Swedish football team in a bar in stockholm Just after euro 2004 and got thrown out. I never even knew who they were at the time!!

  2. Was interviewed for Dutch TV responding to the (leading) question "What do you think about Cadet forces using real guns - isn't it terrible?" or something like that.... at age 14...

    Was at school with Mike Rutherford's (Genesis guitarist) son.
     
  3. Have been on Hi-de-Hi (twice)

    Appeared on one of those annoying ads on bfbs telly which come on between programs when there should be adverts. They were doing a piece on available amenities in Bielefeld, and we got a free days go karting out of it.
