Discussion in 'The NAAFI Bar' started by The13thDukeOfWybourne, May 26, 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'm about to send a much needed morale boosting welfare parcel out to one of the lads currently on Herrick. So far it includes:

    1 x Cliff Richard Cassette - containing such hits as 'Summer Holiday'.
    1 x Bus Spotters Monthly, cira 1995 - with such articles as 'Brighton Coach Rally' and 'Volvo and the gas bus'.
    1 X Shrewsbury to Swansea bus timetable - cira 2007 and in Welsh (came with the bus mag).
    1 x Gay mag, called 'Bent' - featuring Boy George and a fat drag queen.
    1 x set of playing cards - with the Euchre deck removed.
    1 x Big Mac Meal - That's been shoved through a laminator (It took some doing and I think I fucked the laminator).
    Few empty beer cans.
    1 x Scarf and bobble hat.

    What else could be added?

  2. Travel Iron and Spray Starch. Assuming not in Bastion.
  3. Its an ideal windup opportunity.
    What you could do is send a "Mens Fitness" mag in the 1st package, then as time goes on ramp up the content from "mainstream" to "unomfortabe" to "rampant homo content"

  4. A subscription to 'gay times'
    a paddling pool, arm bands and swimming cap
    A hat with an umbrella on it
    another hat - with the straws and can holders
    mark the parcel "another quality gift from the electric cock company"
    love beads/dildo/butt plug
    empty haribo packets
  5. Might want to include some mittens with the bobble hat. Also some flexible ice cube trays and a padlock with keys that don't fit it.
  6. A Ford Capri gearbox, the mutilated genetalia of a 7 year old caucasian child, 1.3lbs of human dung and a sheet of 9mm laminated door glass.

  7. I once got sent a very nice padlock - with the key brazed into it!

    How about a nice paintbrush? cut the bristles off and send them seperately.

    Several books, with random pages missing.
  8. Travel Agents' brochures full of discount vouchers that have expired?
    (Might need a bit of planning here - to find brochures with vouchers and then wait for the vouchers to expire.)
  9. Hairdryer, hairspray and curling tongs
  10. That's just silly... Have you seen the price for a Capri gearbox these days?
  11. Clearly the tins of gourmet pate and Bath Oliver biccies that I sent out were a total waste...
  12. The Good.
    1 Boresnake
    2 One a Day Multi vitamins- nothing stronger, their bodies are working hard enough and they do get fed.
    3 Electrolyte Sports drinks, eg Sport in Science.
    The Bad
    1 Some Thriller/Andy McNab type book. Minus the last chapter.
    2 Boot Pollish- if receipient is wearing suede desert boots only.
    3 Magazines. The People's Friend, This England and anything about railways.
    The Ugly
    1 Bottle of Anal Lube, lube replaced with decent single malt and the shrink wrapping replaced. Boots do a good one with a pump built into the bottle.
    2 Sugary Crap that won't melt- hard bolied sweets, wine gums, etc.
    3 Powdered Drinks/ soups that only need hot water and taste a bit different.

    Finally, a well written bluey or 20. Chicks love writing them. FREEPOST IF UNDER 2KG! Abuse it now before the post gets cut.
  13. I got a Rolf harris C.D. Really like it now, favourite song is Big Dog
  14. "1 Bottle of Anal Lube, lube replaced with decent single malt and the shrink wrapping replaced. Boots do a good one with a pump built into the bottle."

    SB - how do you know this?
  15. The Euchre deck removed? Thats going a bit too far!
