The Joy of "Jackspeak"?

Discussion in 'The NAAFI Bar' started by Infiltrator, Sep 28, 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. It seems the Andrew have managed to get themselves a spot on the Today programme with their Jackspeak!

    BBC News - Today - The joy of 'Jackspeak'

    I would agree that they can be somewhat unintelligible at times, but I'm also sure that the other services can be just as obscure...any ideas?

    My personal favourite from the Fisheads was "PFK" used towards a larger sort of chap. Apparently it's a Pompy Fat Knacker!
  2. "Golden rivet"
    "Your turn in the barrel"
    "Please take my ipod"
    etc etc
  3. More lazy journalism, Jolly was not a Royal Marine.
  4. More commonly used Naval phrases;

    "Can I drink more of your sperm?"

    "I love taking your manhood in my man fanny"

    "I'm obese"

    "Say hello to my little friend" (uttered shortly before hosing down your own CoC)

    If you are feeling like looking at a totally different language uttered by alien beings, have a look at the list that Seaweed produced after his review of Jackspeak on Rum Ration. It would appear that Master Jolly does not know all of the unintelligible utterings of Jolly Jack Tar.

    Mr Seaweed did not feel compelled to add this list of gobbledygook to the review on ARRSE either for reasons of brevity or more like 'cos there is no way we would understand wtf he was talking about! :)
  14. Try putting that lot to the tune of 'Only Fools and Horses'!! I can't get the tune out of my bonce!

    Anyway, shiney-arsed scribes (Me!!), flunky, dabber, backafty, anyone seen the Buffer's balls? Tidy Mess, crabby submariners, hot bunking, Paddies and 'micks, FRISPs, Janners, George, turtles (when they're on their backs...)
