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. A couple attending an art exhibition at the National Gallery were
    staring at a portrait that had them completely confused. The
    painting depicted three very black and totally naked men sitting on a bench.

    Two of the figures had black penises, but the one in the middle had a
    pink penis. The curator of the gallery realized that they were having
    trouble interpreting the painting and offered his assessment. He went on
    for nearly half an hour explaining how it depicted the sexual
    emasculation of african-Americans in a predominantly white
    patriarchal society. "In fact" he pointed out, "some serious
    critics believe that the pink penis also reflects the cultural
    and sociological oppression experienced by gay men in contemporary society."

    After the curator left, a Yorkshireman approached the couple and
    said, would you like to know what the painting is really about?"
    "Now why would you claim to be more of an expert than the curator
    of the gallery?" asked the couple. "Because I'm the guy who
    painted it," he replied. "In fact, there are no African-Americans depicted at all.
    They're just three Yorkshire coal-miners. The guy in the middle
    went home for lunch."
