The Difference.

Discussion in 'The NAAFI Bar' started by The_Snail, Oct 8, 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. I've just seen a post on Faceache, where someone found a Gecko in their house and the wife was apparently screaming. Being an ex-matelot, he got a biscuit tin and a bit of paper and put it outside.

    How very gay is that?

    So I have come to the conclusion:

    Navy - Biscuit tin and rescue the poor wee mite.

    RAF - Cry and scream and shout for your mum.

    Army - Poke it with a stick, see if it eats Haribo, throw stones at it to see if it's tail really does fall off, try to set fire to it once you have trapped it.

    I do have first hand experience of this. Telic 2. Gecko on the ceiling in the "Smoking Area" at the Hotel Shatt (hehe - I said shat), 2 RAF blokes, me and a few Kingos smerking a tab.

    Mr RAF: "It's a Lizard aaaaaaaah".
    Kingo Nicker: "Get me a stick - I just want to check if it's dead. Honest".

    Why is the Army different to the rest of them?

  2. Because we share holes with all manner of creepy crawlies and sometimes they are edible.

  4. Prove it.
  5. Someone was on about a lizard eating a sweet the other day. I think it was a Werther's though...
  6. A Werthers Lizard. What do they look like.

  7. Per your request I raced outside to find a lizard but all I had on me was a biscuit. Nonetheless the principle is sound.

    Probably has skin a very similar texture to the weirdo-paedo that first gave you a Werther's. Colour might be a bit different though
  9. Geckos will not only eat Haribo... They will devour Optimus Prime for breakfast...:nod:

    Are you not a bit old to be still playing with Transformers ? :)
  11. Angry Gecko says "You are never too old!"


    Not mine! belonged to a boy from Bangor who is a year older than me and has a reptile obsession!

    He had two baby ones last time I visited... the reddy one had a lot of attitude for such a teeny thing!

  12. Robots in disguise.
  13. This Lizard tried to eat Kirk but if I'm being honest I can't remember what your question was.
