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. Bizarre stuff. Loving the way she's described as an 'academic', when in fact what she is, is a 'right on' leftie boot who spends all day looking for things to be offended about.

    The worlds gone mad 8O
  2. Same people think the Tracey Boys from Thunderbirds are gay
  3. Auld-Yin

    Auld-Yin LE Reviewer Book Reviewer Reviews Editor

    Some people have too much time on their hands!

    Bloody woman - should have been making a brew instead on analysing a kids TV programme. 8)
  4. my bold

    how ironic!
  5. What are the tellytubbies, then? Eh?

    Good grief, as if there aren't more important things to be worried about then childrens TV. Like getting parents to realise the telly isn't a low-maintenance au pair for the hard of thinking.
  6. Which is, of course, totally unlike the majority of Arrsers... :wink:
  7. Maybe by looking at the period it was written and who it was written by it is hardly the revelation of the century. As Auld Yin said get the woman back in the kitchen
  8. Where do they find these people? Do people seriously get given money to come up with this rubbish? Oh, Professor of Political Science - that explains it, her 3 year old was probably conceived by artificial insemination. She's straight from the Harriet Harman school of man-hating.
  9. Wasn't TTTE written by a vicar back in the 1940's? Might well explain why things are portrayed the way they are, if my decade is correct then we are looking at something written 70-odd years ago ffs!
  10. :D
  11. Bloody good job she didn't analyse Bagpuss, what with its slave labour (probably immigrant) mice under the control of the fat cat. Don't forget the group hallucinations where they all see the story of the object unfold, Animal abuse, as bagpuss (and other animals) are abandoned in the shop (which must be screwing the economy as they don't sell anything) at a small girls whim. Have you seen the way she handles that cat? I'm sure one photo during the intro shows him being held upside down. Then there is the sexual content;

    And when Bagpuss was asleep,
    All his friends were asleep.
    The mice were ornaments on the mouse organ.
    Gabriel and Madeleine were just (sex)dolls.
    Professor Yaffle was just an old wooden bookend in the shape of a woodpecker.
    Even Bagpuss himself, once he was asleep, was just an old, saggy cloth cat,
    Baggy, and a bit loose at the seams,
    But Emily loved him

    anyone can make this shit up about a programme. Probably.
  12. Lord save us from wimmin.
  13. Mr Ben then must have been gay then, especially dressing up in a slightly dodgy shop. Then there is the Clangers, Capt Pugwash
  14. Not forgetting seaman stains of course.
