    I thought about marrying a squaddie, but then had a better thought.
     
  2. The article forgot to mention that when they're drunk they'll shag anything and also tend to be drunk on their wedding day... so easy tagrets too.
     
  3. Clicky don't work for me. But, maybe, if you like yer grub, marry a squaddie. A squaddie mate of mine said that both his ex-wives were about nine and a half stone when they met ........ and 15 stone when they left.

    That must have happened to me, but I don't remember marrying a squaddie!
     
  5. Good morning OF&H. That's a point. During my rare experience of "a relationship", I looked like I'd developed a penchance for pies. :oops:

    Then should have made it with a vegetarian. We don't do pies, except healthy ones. And avoid squaddies. I always do.
     
  7. In fact, at the time of embarking on said "relationship", I WAS a vegetarian. However, my principles went out the window, watching him tucking into some delicious-looking duck in plum sauce in a Camden Chinese restaurant, one evening. My willpower/principles with regard to squaddies, might also be questionable. 8O
     
  8. Do furry pies count as vegetarian?

    Good job I'm not a squaddie then.!
     
  12. This is nonsense, why just last night my wife said she wished she never married me. As I stumbled through the bedroom door with my best "Lets get it on, but turn around as I can't be arsed to imagine you as anyone else" face.
     
  13. So you've just proved that squaddies are the romantic type then! Bet the Mrs was ever so willing? I would have been, I'd have been willing (honest) to knock a few teeth down your said throat! :wink:

    See that's the problem. You want flowers, meals out and good wine. All we want is an empty sack.

    Get your priorities sorted woman.
