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. Just thinking about the sad loss of Ronnie Barker (what a talented funny guy) has got me thinking of other comedy greats that are no longer with us ie. Tony Hancock (A Pint!) Another that I found hilarious and was side splitting was Alf Garnett (Alfs Christmas) it went something along the lines of:

    Alf Garnett said Jesus was English etc etc and Joseph was just a lodger!!

    and continued.........Joseph and Mary were sent to Bethlehem and couldnt find anywhere to stay,........... to which the old dear in the sketch replied "well it was Christmas what do you expect, everywhere is crowded"

    What are your favourite comedy classics?
  2. Is Warren Mitchell dead? :? Did anyone tell him?

    Any part of Bill Hick's rant about GW1, but especially the bit about the catalogue of weaponry,and the bit about the Republicans "making up this sheite about there being guards put there".
  6. That's okay, we can find out where he lives and send RTFQ stories to him... He'll either die laughing or come back with a shed load of new material. ;) Result either way! :D

  7. Bob Newhart - The Shell...... in fact, most of his material.
  8. Bill Hicks and the fact that if you listen to his jokes about Bush senior and GW1, and didn't know Hicks was dead you'd think he was talking about Iraq at the moment.

  10. Anything by Spike Milligan, top comedian and not a bad old-gunner either
  11. "Introducing tobacco" :lol:
  12. Spike milligans war diaries are without a doubt the funniest thing i've ever read.

    I dont know if its sick but when a great comedian dies i'm sad yet also a little happy because i know i'm going to spend an evening absolutely p1ssing myself when the BBC do "A Tribute To......." and show all the best episodes from when BBC comedies were actually funny.

  13. Chris Rock: "A man is only as faithful as his options. Monica shouldn't have even had a chance! Hilary put us all in danger, and she needs to suffer the consequences of her actions! She's the First Lady! She needs to be the first one on her knees to suck his d*ck!"
