I Hate Showtime

Discussion in 'The NAAFI Bar' started by Gaz_ED, Aug 7, 2008.

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 listen to R2, 'cos I'm old and knackered, in the morning on the way to work.

    I have to turn it off at 0715 when that f*cking showtime comes on.

    Who the f*ck likes musicals anyway?

    C*nts!

  3. Me...yes I am good with colours and quite light on my feet - why do you ask?? :wink:
     
  4. It's that Sarah Kennedy I cannot abide.
     
  5. Or Terry Wobegone...
     
  6. I, like you, listen to R2 for the same reasons. But it is the only bit of that cat shagging hypochondriac walting bitch's show that I actually listen too.

    Because usually you can hear the words...........

    Hey? What?
     
  7. You're all a bunch of old bastards. When I listen to Radio 2 I get the same feeling i imagine old people get when they sh't themselves and have to sit in it for hours on end. Terry Wogan just rambles on like the senile knacker he is, Steve Wright belongs at Radio Norfolk or some equally smarmy local radio station and Sarah Kennedy is just barking mad. And as for that bespeckled, talentless ginger cnut, if ever so much as catch site of him I'm going to beat him until he's unrecognisable.

    Digital Radio - What be this witchcraft?!?!
     
  12. FFS grow a pair get off the fence and give us your honest opinion :p
     
  13. Nice to see you keeping your posts brief OFaH!

    However I too am a fan of Radio 7. Also Radio 4 and World Service. All available on digital radio. World Service is still the serious current affairs/news speech radio that appears unavailable anywhere else.

    Yes. Sorry about the cut and paste. Just wanted to show what is available. R4 and World Service too are excellent.
     
  15. Actually , I agree with Arby - why the f*ck do I listen to that dried up old slag of a morning? The deranged whore can't even read out the f*cking newspapers properly - she sounds as if she's still suffering from her Mogadon and Cabernet Sauvignon binge from the night before. Either that or the b*stard Temazepans are kicking in. Wrinkle -necked, rancid, insane, stenchbag, tw*t of the hightest order. I'll bet she's got a minge like a bag of salt and vinegar crisps.

    I'll put a CD on.....
