Is it really that good here?

You come to ARRSE. You repeatedly get abuse. It can't be much fun.

But I notice that you're not like other Yanks.

Dare i say it? You're Anglicised. Are you trying hard? Or is it ancestry coming out? Are you reverting to to your roots?

Do you put on a show for ARRSE? Or do your neighbours notice that you're, well, a bit different?

Prefer tea to coffee? Laugh without the need for prompt boards?

Did you stop laughing at Benny Hill when you were 10?

Will there be a day when your management adopts your attitude?


Please explain.

Puttees I agree in the last few months a couple of these dam Colonialists have actually be quite clever, witty and god help me but down right funny. Yes there are still the s1te kicking red necks out there, you know who you are but a few are actually posting stuff that is worth reading.

I will now call them Plastic Brits rather than Spams this is not an insult rather a compliment, they have adapted to the site rather than the normal Spam who insists that they are the only show in town. Perhaps we could have a shoulder title for them so we don’t mix them up with the normal dross.

Ballbag is sometimes quite funny, DavidBOC is witty and informative. I haven't really seen much of the others, less for their ability to copy and paste and tell us how shite we are.

Shall I offer them a nice cup of tea and a biscuit?

Hmm, I did laugh at Benny Hill when I was a kid...

Perhaps it is my heritage (family did come over here from there circa mid 1600's) coming out that keeps me here or maybe it's the good memories I have of training and operating alongside you Brits as well as the extremely entertaining visits I have had to your island. Naw... main reason I visit ARRSE is to hear a differant perspective from folks who speak the same language but have a funny accent. ;)

Speak for yourself Bubba.
I come to ASS to hear all those quaint pissant peasants from Englandshire sound off about how good they are.
Whether that be the weather HEY IS SUCKS you should GET OVER IT, or Mrs Beckham is as plastic as Chinese toy!

Yep sireeey, you Limey Sons of Guns are sure edumacating me!
Gee thanks Pardners!
:roll:

Dam girl, I do not copy and paste my shiyit.
God Bless John Wayne and apple pie for DavidBOC!
Just shows that some of us got past 2nd grade, I mean "Infants"
Are your teeth like a Fighting patrol?

What he said. (I dare not say much more---or even worse commit the unforgivable sin of cut and paste). I will resolve to being the proverbial "potted plant" (otherwise ignorant septics of a certain age will no doubt understand the metaphor while(st) some of our British cousins may need to Wiki Brendan Sullivan, Esq.) After all, it is only fair after all the wiki-ing (sp ?) they put us through with their obscure (but usually hilarious) idioms! :lol:

I think the brits on here should be far more welcoming of you all. I for one blush whenever one of the unruly oiks on arrse start to besmirch the good name of our American cousins.

I hesitate to ask but after all it is a gloriously beautiful autumn day here in the Blue Ridge so I will risk it---are you feeling alright JJ? :D

Don't you dare, I'm not plastic nor remotely British. Now go push your trolleys in the Tesco car park and feck yourself off.


Dale I'm not trying to be funny just trying to push you over the edge. Sadly I have failed, but then again trying to push a self aborbed vodka fueled syph infest clout over the edge has never been easy; the US Gubmint never got Al to do the right thing he just died of the disease....
I didn't mean you ctauch, I would never call you funny,witty or even allude to your IQ being higher than your shoe size (UK size not your quaint US sizes). As for Tescos at least I can hold down a full time job which doesn't involve white sheets and burning crosses.

I lack the temerity to insert myself into the debate you are having with the inimitable Ctauch but, as a closed-minded septic from that god-forsaken backwater in the deep south of America, the sovereign state of Georgia (named in honor of one of your former rulers) I have been trying unsuccessfully to see the negative connotation in your statement. :D

Erm, by the way, any of those nice chocolate biscuits in that tin?

Ah..

I guess that shows one needs to be more specific about which Klavern is being considered. Mine indeed does pay a living wage and we are even considering using PMCs to keep up with our governmental competitors especially since there is a glut of them on the market at present with the scrutiny being given to Blackwater (nee' Xe) and others. The only problem is getting them to conform to our uniform standards after they have been in mufti with all those ally evil-looking black carbines draped with every electronic aiming aid and skin-blistering, retina-frying light known to man.

just out of curiosity ctauch what is your heritage?
Uhmerikun

Or were you looking for the PC hypenated version used by so many....that would probably be something along the lines of german-scottish-danish-english-american.

Although in fact the german was more on the lines of prussian, the scottish piece is not for certain seeing the english part popped out a sprog while living in the land of jocks.


That's based on geneology going back to around 1760...
