Just a little light relief!

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. Terrorist alert
    The British have reacted to the recent terrorism alerts by raising their security level from "Miffed" to "Peeved." Soon, though, security levels may
    be raised yet again to "Irritated" or even "A Bit Cross."

    Londoners have not been "A Bit Cross" since the blitz in 1940, when tea supplies all but ran out. Terrorists have been re-categorized from "Tiresome" to a "Bloody Nuisance." The last time the British issued a "Bloody Nuisance" warning level was during the great fire of 1666.

    Also, the French Government announced yesterday that it has raised its terror alert level from "Run" to "Hide." The only two higher levels in France are "Surrender" and "Collaborate." The rise was precipitated by a recent fire that destroyed France's white flag factory, effectively paralyzing the country's military capability.

    It's not only the English and French that are on a heightened level of alert.

    Italy has increased the alert level from "Shout Loudly and Excitedly" to "Elaborate Military Posturing." Two more levels remain: "Ineffective Combat Operations" and "Change Sides."

    The Germans also increased their alert state from "Disdainful Arrogance" to "Dress in Uniform and Sing Marching Songs." They also have two higher levels: "Invade a Neighbour" and "Lose."

    Belgians, on the other hand, are all on holiday, as is customary, and the only
     
  2. ....... threat they are worried about is NATO pulling out of Brussels.


    (Don't you just hate it when someone finishes your joke for you?)
     
  3. Yeah, I was wondering about that last bit.
     
  4. Heh... Ihave seen other versions of this but never the Brit one. Question, if a football stadium was targeted by tangos, would the UK jump straight to the highest level?

    With some luck, France will regain some fighting elan once Sarkozy is elected... and have some sympathy for the Belgians as they have to suffer close proximity to the EU parlement (I personally think it should have been convened on a remote island as far as possible from civilized folks.)
     
  5. Already done, a few weeks ago, here.
