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. Due to boss with a 'sense of humour', my section has been given the following task:

    We have 70 'cryptic' clues, each of which leads to the name of a cartoon/kid's show. If
    we manage to solve all 70, we will be given a sporties this after noon. Any help
    with this would be appreciated!

    1) Amazing Oaf.
    2) An avenue of flying vermin
    3) Carrier cat
    4) Electrical devices
    5) It's above the eight
    6) Male males
    7)Master dog-cleaner
    8) Rapid spiralling decent (might be descent?)
    9) Strange auric towns
    10) Copper coloured pencil

    We have the remainder, it's just these few that are driving us nuts!
    Help!
