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. At long f*cking last, Readers Digest has gone into administration. :lol:

    Those buggers hounded me years ago, it got so bad that I had to get 4 house bricks, bound and wrapped in brown paper to post to them using their pre-paid reply envelope to stop there mail.

    And another thing, how many people do you know called 'Tom Champagne' the man who dishes out prize money??

    I bet Readers Digest know where Bin Laden lives.
     
  2. Doctor's waiting rooms will still be ok.Our has them from the early 80's.
     
  3. There were some real gems in the "humour in uniform" bit they used to have.
     
  4. Sad,but the clue is in the name. To read,one has to be taught properly,and encouraged from an early age.

    I blame the Education,Education,Education crew,for turning out mong,after mong,after mong. :)
     
  5. To those who say "nothing is impossible" ....

    "Oh no? Have you ever tried getting yourself off the Readers Digest mailing list?"
     
  6. Yes, i bought them out and put them into administration. :twisted:
     
  7. I liked those little quotations and nuggets of humour or wisdom that appeared at the bottom of some of the pages. The best one I ever read was "When the Israelites saw Goliath, they all said "He's too big. We'll never kill him." But when David saw the same giant, he said "Fcuk me! Look at the size of that C*nt. I can't miss!" (Or words to that effect.) It's a philosophy that's served me well ever since. :D
     
  8. i feel partly to blame here!!

    i said yes to a few of the offers while i was moving house and recieved a few books but forgot to return them!!

    its a cracking atlas of the world mind!! :)

    well they wouldnt leave me alone so i said yes for once!!!
