Ex-commando captures runaway pig

Discussion in 'The NAAFI Bar' started by flamingo, Mar 28, 2009.

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 can't quite figure out the fact that he is ex-marine is relevant, or how it gave him special skills in capturing run-away livestock, maybe somebody can enlighten me... :?

    (feel free to move to NAAFI if appropriate!)
     
  2. Was he drunk and naked? If so then his training was appropriate.
     
  3. This story is far too funny to be in here!! Stand by for a miserable bugger to start a rant about inapropriate behaviour of the commando's! Nice one!!!!
     
  4. I thought this would be a story about a Bootie and his new wife... :D

  5. I always seemed to catch the crokadillo pigs
     
  6. Don't you know it's week 8 in training? In between jumping over buildings and making bullets bounce off your chest.

    "It is quite a large pig and, although it was not aggressive, a number of the younger officers were quite daunted."

    Perhaps the relevance was that as a booty he had sufficient bottle which was lacking in his current comrades-in-batons.
     
  10. I thought us military types were always chasing after pigs.
     
  11. I like pigs and I like and respect the Royal Marines.

    I do not like the current government and I have lost respect and confidence in the Metropolitan Police.

    Racists.
     
  13. Humping a pig was a right of passage therefore catching one was commonplace:)

    (CG/RRW/RWF preferred sheep).
