Discussion in 'The Lamp and Sandbag II - The Tall Story Strikes B' started by Tabs, Sep 9, 2004.

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:


    What about
    "Alcohol, the cause of and solution to all life's problems." - H.J.Simpson
  2. Or "defeat is bad" - Nelson Mandella's Podiatrist.

  3. I can agree with Dr. Martin Luther Kings' inclusion, but what about:

    "Never in the field of human conflict was so much owed by so many to so Few " ( Spoiled only by it being nice to the Crabs. )

    "Some chicken, some neck"

    (In response to "Winston, you're drunk...") "In the morning I shall be sober. But you will still be ugly. "

    Bit of a common denominator.....
  4. The list should include:

    all of Admiral Nelson's rants about the Frogs

    parts of Tim Collins' 'eve of battle' speech

    Churchill's 'we will never surrender'

    at least one example of a 'Bushism', for amusement value
  5. How about this one:

    'There's only two things smell of fish... and one of them's fish'

    My CSgt at Sandhurst.
  6. How about.. " If you can keep your head when all about are losing theirs.. you may not be truly aware of the situation/sh*t you are in "
  7. NUT'S , Simple and eloquent and used to great effect by U.S. cmdr at Bastogne in WWII, when asked if he wished to surrender by German cmdr. 8)
  8. How about "There have been some allegations made, and I want to know who the alligators are"

    SSM Gulf War ONE
  9. hows about, 'you've got two hopes, and one of thems bob!'

    or, allegedly'come in on my side and you've got browns job' :twisted:
  10. 'Come and get them!' Leonadies, King of Sparta, when told to lay down his arms just before the battle of Thermopyle.

    veered off topic methinks, on a serious swerve, yes, anything by churchill gives me a warm feeling, just waiting for the mark two version to save us now :cry:
  13. Techtechtech, old chum, Leonidas was not the King of Sparta, but merely one of the two kings which ruled Sparta together.

    Leonidas was what is commonly referred to as the 'Military King', and thus the 300 Spartan warriors who died at Thermopylae (the Gates of Fire in Greek) were in fact his personal bodyguard.

    As for quotes, I take my inspiration from the greatest Englishman who ever lived, Admiral the Lord Nelson: 'Down, down with the Frenchman, is my constant prayer.'

    4. Boxing Analyst: "Sure there have been injuries, and even some
    deaths in

    5. Softball announcer: "If history repeats itself, I should think we
    expect the same thing again."

    6. Basketball analyst: "He dribbles a lot and the opposition doesn't
    it. In fact you can see it all over their faces."

    7. At the rowing medal ceremony: "Ah, isn't that nice, the wife of
    the IOC
    president is hugging the cox of the British crew."

    8. Soccer commentator: "Julian Dicks is everywhere. It's like they've
    eleven Dicks on the field."

    9. Tennis commentator: "One of the reasons Andy is playing so well is
    before the final round, his wife takes out his balls and kisses
