Actual quote:
“Yer a bloody pervert, you are,” said Forster.

“Oh, aye, lissen to Dr Freud!”

“Oo's Doctor Freud?”

“A fookin' professor.”

“I don't suppose that's what they called him in Vienna,” said the Duke, “but it's a not inaccurate description.”

I'm still non the wiser.
Quote from what?
As I said I'm sure that makes sense in your head, to me it makes no sense at all.

Took me a while to work this out but the clue is GMF.
GMF is ARRSE shorthand for George Macdonald Fraser the well known Scottish author.
He did the 'Flashman' novels.
Those hieroglyphs probably appertain to one of Mr MacDonald's works.

Quartered Safe Out Here to be exact.

Thanks for the explanation.
No Idea about GMF or Flashman, not read any of them.
So whatever he was on about is still a fucking mystery to me.
And I've no fucking clue as to how that involves Ron Jeremy.

Took me ages to work out as well.

He jumped in with a load of initials and some random quote and just expected me to understand it.
Even now after being told what it's all about it makes no sense to me at all.
I'm fucked if I'm going to read some crap books by some weird auther just to understand his fucking wafflings.

This is (as we were told as nig juniors) the danger in using jargon.
That one lesson has served me very well in life.

By the way, don't be put off the works of GM Fraser, his stuff is pretty good.

If he'd written it out in full I'd still be confused as to what the fuck he was on about.
I still am.
Next time I'll just ignore whatever he whitters about, it'll save me a whole heap of my precious time.

Yep, when you need to go into excruciating detail to explain the joke, it's probably not that amusing.

Even then I wouldn't have understood.
I don't read that kind of stuff.
His problem there is assuming everyone knows what he was on about and has read everything he has.

I'm not sure what stuff you read, obviously but Flashman aside GMF has written 2 excellent books which anybody who has served would in all likehood enjoy
Quartered as referred to earlier, and the McAuslan series, if on your travels you see any of them going cheap, try it.

George McDonald Fraser isn't entirely weird. Quartered Safe Out Here is an excellent book describing his time as a National Serviceman in Malaya.

Not my kind of book I'm glad to say.
Douglas Adams, Terry Pratchett. That's my kind of thing.
I have no inclination to read anything remotely military.
Or watch films about it.

Eh, No it's not! It is about his time as a conscript in Burma during the later stages of WW2 before being sent to an officer candidate school in India.

I read Pratchett and Adams too, but each to their own.

I was given Map of Africa and Picking up the Brass about 10 years ago, they are still on my shelf with about an inch of dust on them.

Sorry. I was confusing it with another author. I plead Rioja.
