Screensaver Suggestions

Discussion in 'The NAAFI Bar' started by steven seagull, Jan 19, 2011.

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. Sometime ago a collegue got the hump because I was looking at a thread that featured pictures of firearms. I started a thread asking what weapon Arrsers would use to wipe out an office full of mongs and No Duff sent me a nice piccy of a whopping great handgun which has been my screensaver ever since.

    Today I was politely asked to replace it as "some staff find it unnerving"

    Obviously I cant replace it with something that will get me the sack but all suggestions would be welcome.
  2. Would this work?

    Put up a picture of someone else's family, the kind of portraits taken in studios where the mum, dad and three kids are all smiling and happy against a white background.

    If anyone asks who they are, just look at them with faraway eyes and say you aren't sure but you are in the process of finding out and you think they look very happy.

    People will find that considerably more unnerving.

    Alternatively find out which bellend complained about your gun pic and put up a picture of his family, that will scare the fucker.
  4. Alternatively use Ravers sig block...nothing remotely offensive, just Darth Vader asking that bird if she wants a lick of the chocolate sauce he dripped on his glove!!
  5. A slideshow of all the office girls boobs/legs/arses ? They might even end up wanting the gun pic restored!
  6. Try this - i'm sure it'll really send them round the bend

    Replace it with a picture of a different gun - done as you've been asked

    It's actually the angle the pic is taken from. Darth Vader is innocently pointing and laughing at one of the stormtroopers who has fallen over just out of shot. Princess Leia is stood just in front, between his finger and the camera, her mouth is open because she is asking Vader if there is something stuck in her teeth.

    I hadn't noticed that it looks a bit like he is poking his finger in her mouth.

    Geometry eh? Hilarious.
  9. I like it. What I'm looking for is something that will cause offence but I can make an excuse for having up.

    Edited to add: I not sure they'll believe Im a jedi.
  10. Remember that initial thread.

    If they didn't like the firearm, what about a nice picture of Buddy Jebus:

    Innocent enough unless of course you're religious

    In that case put up some vintage hairy minge porn and if anyone kicks off, tell them it is your (sadly recently deceased) mum and that you are very proud of her achievements.
  12. You can take my screensaver when you remove it

    "From my cold dead PC"
  13. Here you go then.
    Apologies to anyone who is eating:

  14. Try this. When asked, just laugh and say it looks nothing like you . . .


    Or use one of these . .


  15. The woman sat next to me has just laughed so hard she's had to go to the loo.

    Good drills.
