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. HaHaHaHaHaHaHaHa.

    Poetic justice!
  2. chuffed to bits, just got myself a snorkel!! theres 3 million out there somewhere!!
  3. Well there is the possibility that said ransom payers simple placed a device in with the money and sunk the floating bank before they got ashore.

    Which may deter the other fcukers from trying it on......
  4. And the device wouldn't need to be expensive, either. A pork chop amongst the notes may be enough to cause such panic as to induce a capsize. :twisted:
  5. My heart weeps purple p1ss for them! Funniest thing I've read in ages! :twisted: :rofl:
  6. Aint life a bitch. Who's up for a diving exped?
  7. Wonder if they drowned in the vasty deep or a hail of lead. After all, $2m does not go that far these days when split 8 ways.

    Just a thought...........

    Funny as fcuk.
  9. So did we manage to save the money?
  10. As the saying goes. What goes around comes around.
  11. I gather the ransom was to be used for swimming lessons. Oh well, the best laid plans etc.

    Funny as hell though.
  12. I’ve often wondered why ransom money is not paid in some kind of biodegradable paper/ink that will be useless in a month or so.
  13. Yeah, very amusing,
    One company got away with it, saved a bit of cash, blew the pirates to f*ck.

    What about the crew of the next vessel that's taken?

    This could be the end of the phoney war.
  14. :) so the three that made it ashore can't even buy another boat
