Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Fcuk:- Our most versatile word. By it’s stress and inflection and use covers all and every emotion. No other word can be used in such grammatical variation and with such various nuances.
    It can be used a noun {I don’t give a fcuk!} as an adjective { it’s a fcuking beauty!} and as a verb in its transitive form {the game was fcuked by the weather} and the intransitive form {he was well and truly fcuked it up!}

    Every day expressions shows it’s true versatility:-

    Apathy - Who gives a fcuk anyway!
    Denial - I’ll be fcuked if I did!
    Derisory - He fcuks everything up!
    Goodbye - Fcuk off!
    Greeting - How the fcuk are you!
    Perplexity - I know fcuk all about it!
    Resignation - Oh! Fcuk!

    The F word has of course been used by some very famous people throughout the ages, some of the more notable examples of them being:-
