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. Bearing in mind this ARRSEPedia entry, what on earth is this author writing about?

    Linkage

    Has The Daily Mail been informed? Have any other ARRSE Members come across hidden porn in books, how should we end this blight on our fair society?
     
  2. Er - how about Alice in Wonderland and Through The Looking Glass?

    Or Cap'n Pugwash?

    Or most of the Brothers Grimm Fairy Tales?

    Porn-ists, Freudians and paedophiles are all-pervasive - for those determined to find them. :1:
     
  3. I understand that The Bible may include scenes not suitable for minors.
     
  4. Sorry Caubeen, utter urban myth. I thought this had been comprehensively debunked already.

    Google 'captain pugwash urban myth' to see.
     
  5. Mr_Fingerz

    Mr_Fingerz LE Book Reviewer

    It has, and the author isn't afraid to sue.
     
  6. Review
    "Spontaneous humor, sure to appeal to the youngest reader." -- The Horn Book Magazine

    ...er ok
     
  7. According to Amazon, the first sentence of the book is:

    Another candidate for the Paras then!
     
  8. I fell about sniggering when my mother in law gave my daughter a book called 'Dogger'

    Clickity click
     
  9. I had the book and my own Dogger (cuddly toy) as a child, now I understand where he used to disappear to late at night in his Mondeo estate...
     
  10. I wish it were.

    Alas, there are psychologists/social workers/shrinks abroad in our land who actually believe and practise this tosh - and, furthermore, have legal powers to detain and sequester children whom they deem at risk.

    Remember the Orkney fiasco? No responsible person should forget, or - more importantly - let the perpetrators forget.

    As for the Bible, significant chunks of that are morally dubious. Read the Song of Songs lately?
     
  11. "Horn books" date from the late 1500s, and are so-called from the translucent sheets of flattened cows' horn that were used as outer flaps for the binding, from which the smearings from children's fingers could be wiped easily.

    And yet - just as with some 21st cent. psychologists & social workers - the "horn" bit is often referred to smuttily, and for no good reason.
     
  12. You're right Caubeen, enough of this smut! Why only the other day I saw this and was shocked:

    Have you ever seen such smut?! :slow:

    Chin Chin! ;)
     
  13. Yeee-Haa! :1:

    The Great Unperformed Adult Drama of James Joyce? :party: :omfg: :judge:

    I promote it at every opportunity. To adults. :lol: :D :lol: :D

    That'll be two tickets for the Friday evening performance, will it?
