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. Apparently when opening your "present" (a Christmas card with a £20 cheque inside) from your Sister in Law
    the correct response is not "Fantastic,just what I've always wanted!" as this is deemed to be sarcastic.

    It is now very quiet Chez Van.

    What time and channel is The Great Escape on?
  2. At least you got a present ... as we are doing sarcasm today ...

    That's not sarcasm, it's bitterness. Now, where's the rest of that sherry...?

    Some can't even be trusted with cooking sherry.
  5. The correct response is, "Thanks, that'll cover my Porn Channel subscription for a couple of months" followed by a leering wink.

    The Rt Hon Iain Duncan Smith MP's people at DWP sent me an OAP's Christmas Bonus of £10. I would have framed it, but it was an electronic bank transfer. Hardly the Spirit of Christmas.
  7. So what's the correct response to opening up a pressie, from your wrinklies, with an M&S jumper inside?.......:-?
  8. Repay her by posting feelthy pictures of her on here.

  11. It's the thought that counts!
  12. A nice bottle of 12 year old Malt would have been more thoughtful.
  13. Struck gold this year. New pair of Hoggs moleskins, bottle of Talisker and an old favorite white horse (like the taste as well as the joke). Plus a fab gun cleaning kit.
    scared she might demand conjugal rights tonight. Must drink more heavily.
