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. I humbly apologize if this has been posted before, But I though it was good.

    An incident occurred in a supermarket recently, when the following was witnessed:
    A Muslim woman dressed in a Burkha (A black gown & face mask) was standing with her
    shopping in a queue at the checkout.

    >When it was her turn to be served, and as she reached the cashier, she made a loud remark
    about the British Flag lapel pin, which the female cashier was wearing on her blouse.
    The cashier reached up and touched the pin and said, 'Yes, I always wear it proudly. My son serves abroad with the forces and I wear it for him'.
    The Muslim woman then asked the cashier when she was going to stop bombing and killing her countrymen, explaining that she was Iraqi.
    >At that point, a Gentleman standing in the queue stepped forward, and interrupted with a
    calm and gentle voice, and said to the Iraqi woman:
    'Excuse me, but hundreds of thousands of men and women, just like this lady's son have
    fought and sacrificed their lives so that people just like YOU can stand here, in Great Britain,
    which is MY country and allow you to blatantly accuse an innocent check-out cashier of bombing YOUR countrymen'.
    'It is my belief that if you were allowed to be as outspoken as that in Iraq, which you claim to be YOUR country, then we wouldn't need to be fighting there today'.
    'However - now that you have learned how to speak out and criticise the British people who
    have afforded you the protection of MY country, I will gladly pay the cost of a ticket to help
    you make your way back to Iraq'.
    'When you get there, and if you manage to survive for being as outspoken as what you are
    here in Britain, then you should be able to help straighten out the mess which YOUR Iraqi countrymen have got you into in the first place, which appears to be the reason that you
    have come to MY country to avoid.'
    Apparently the queue cheered and applauded.

    I thought it appropriate...

  2. Bindun mate - it's been round t'internet more often than Goatse. And it was originally Yank.

    Not that I don't agree with the sentiment.
